Will Sheldon, Founder & CEO
Founded in 2018, Autimo helps North American clients from startup to enterprise in size with cloud infrastructure, cloud platform development, Infrastructure as Code, and DevOps as a Service, with an emphasis on consultation and education. Enabling businesses to accelerate cloud implementation, liberate themselves from repetitive tasks, and develop competitive advantage. “As a consultative B2B organization, we are as passionate about people and relationships as we are about technology. We believe there is a better, more open way of doing business offering mutual benefit to our customers as well as ourselves and everyone else” states Will Sheldon, the Founder and CEO, Autimo.

Will notes how some of Autimo’s clients “face a challenge in keeping the wheels turning when a skilled member of staff moves on. It can create a talent gap for up to three or so months where Autimo can help out”. Assistance often comes with the added benefit of architectural review and assurance that they are moving in the right direction with their cloud ventures. Positioning themselves at the forefront of emerging cloud technologies enables Autimo to keep abreast of new products from cloud vendors, including the big players like AWS, GCP, and Azure and also smaller providers such as Tigera and Hashicorp. This allows the company to suggest best in class DevOps and automation tools, techniques, and processes to increase velocity and drive down costs of both development and operations.

With education as one of it’s core values, Autimo heavily invests in research, development, and analysis, enabling a more tailored approach, integrating with clients’ current solutions and processes in a way that can be difficult to achieve for competitors who lack this breadth of knowledge. The company offers a consultative process and makes insightful recommendations suited to the clients’ business architecture. Ultimately, Autimo offers valuable advice, assists businesses with the implementation, the aftercare, and support of cloud initiatives along with hand-holding them through the operational lifecycle of a project.
“We empower clients to become self-sufficient and self-reliable. Our goal is to educate them so that they can internalize the crucial skill sets and achieve a lower cost of operation,” adds Will.

With people-centricity at its core, Autimo ensures its solutions are suited to clients’ needs. The company usually starts a new engagement with a small ‘taster’ project using an agile approach to iteratively understand client goals, assumptions, restrictions, timelines, and the internal environment whilst immediately starting to deliver value and drive results. Autimo can work with various project management frameworks and can integrate with customer teams, aiming to feel “just like other internal employees.” Throughout the engagement the company provides mentoring and coaching as needed, followed by a fully warranted user acceptance testing period. With regular updates, 24/7 ongoing support, and zero-cost check-ins, Autimo seeks to develop long standing relationships based on mutual trust and respect.

Autimo has recently been focused on high-security, multi-account environments where customers are looking to ensure standards compliance. With the growing emphasis on zero trust networking many legacy VPN and perimeter based security models are undergoing review and cloud native tooling can certainly help ease the transition to a more modern security posture. The company continues to function remotely and is currently looking to expand its workforce. “We offer a complete package to clients, including advice, implementation support, aftercare, and ongoing support. We are here to assist and support throughout the entire journey and operational life cycle.” concludes Will.
