Matt is the my leader and first Scrum master while I joined IBM. I learned a lot from Matt on leading, organizing scrum team in big group. He is really a great senior software engineer on Java, C design and Cloud management area. I've had the pleasure to work with Matt on SmartCloud Entry from 2.2~2.4 to 3.1 release. He had strong skills on software design, coding etc. Moreover, Matt is experienced agile theory and practice people who is able to pick up new technologies quickly. Linux, Virtualization, Cloud Management platform, Openstack are his field as well.

I've had the distinct honor of not only working with Matt as a peer but also as his manager. Matt is a dedicated, hardworking, and knowledgeable engineer who was instrumental in launching several products at Canonical - most recently being the Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes.
Matt's attention to detail, unrelenting focus, and drive for quality make him a well rounded engineer. Quick to learn new things, he's helped push Canonical to the forefront of the cloud native and container trends.
In addition to his stellar professional role, Matt is personally and enjoyable person to have on the team. He works well with others and has conflict management skills that often elude great engineers.

I’ve worked extensively with Matt Bruzek during our tenure together at Canonical. We went from being new hire acquaintances to literally shared-mind kubernetes lead developers in a short span of 3 years. Through our adventures of teasing apart end-user problems and new feature development Matt has instilled a definite baseline of quality and focus into our team. Through rigorous testing, analysis, and automation of our release pipeline his ethics are baked into the very core of our products here on the Juju Kubernetes team.
His reviews were thorough, consistent, and methodical when looking at peer code. He never shied away from asking the tough questions to fully understand the problem domains he wasn’t confident in. Working with him for me was a rare pleasure. It’s not everyday you meet your intellectual compliment. As a team member you cannot ask for a more punctual, dedicated, and excited person to fulfill any role thrown at him. I admire his tenacity to drive through any problem until it yields a success.
I send along this review with my highest regard and would recommend him for any position in the software industry.

Over the last few years, I've worked with Matt on a wide range of software projects. He's a dedicated, professional developer with an obvious passion for all things engineering. If you really want a lesson, try to convince Matt that immutable config and lint failures are okay.
Both on and off the clock, when he's not tuning virtual machines or jvm garbage collectors, he's elbow-deep in an engineering project. The sheer quantity of gadgets and code that Matt creates is mind-boggling. Even more impressive is the thoughtfulness and quality apparent in all of his work.
If there's a bar for software engineers, it doesn't go higher than Matt.
