Hello all, I am Dan Wolf and I lead a Platform Engineering team at BlackRock. My team builds reusable building blocks / services that accelerate development speed and enable technical innovation for engineers. We do a lot on Google cloud and on prem. Looking forward to connecting.

Sure. Reusable building blocks can be REST APIs (basic examples we have built are an email sender service and a logging service, ranging to more custom business specific examples) and Python libraries of reusable common functions (mostly for ETL with various data sources). These save development time and energy because they can simply be stitched together when building something new.
Feel free to DM!
