We are searching for a flexible and innovative individual who can manage our cloud computing systems and the software running on them, together with providing programme/software development support to the team as a whole. We are essentially searching for a Software/Big Data Engineer, who also has experience in or an understanding of Infrastructure Management, such as running cloud computing systems and the following systems as outlined under ‘essential skills.’
This is an entirely new role to the company and as such, duties can be customised to suit the right person but generally speaking you will be in charge of; developing, supporting and maintaining our IT infrastructure and systems to allow the downloading, storing, processing and visualising of satellite data, to support a wide variety of national and international projects. You may also be; programming, supporting web based developments and Earth Observation projects (depending on the skills and interests of the job holder.)
The ideal candidate would be someone who is passionate about infrastructure and coding, an individual who would enjoy using open source software and technology to deliver automated solutions, providing robust, efficient and effective customer focussed Big Data solutions. Our philosophy is based on the belief that scientific research and innovation are vital to the future development of both knowledge and society. We want to inspire people to become involved in science and scientific development. As such, we are genuinely passionate about the progression and personal development of every member of our small team; we genuinely believe that each individual has the potential to make the world of difference if they are given the right tools, support and opportunity to grow.
All of our machines are bespoke and hand built, we also have three virtual servers, which we expect to double in the next 6-9 months. We are predominantly a Cloud direct client but this could change as we expand and progress and we would be open to ideas on how best to streamline both our virtual and physical systems. There will be a lot of freedom within this role to help our business grow in whichever way best suits our and your needs as part of a local, independent SME.
Both the programming and infrastructure elements of this role are equally important, however we would accept either infrastructure or programming as the first/foremost element, as long as you have experience/knowledge of the other side in some way, shape or form and are willing to learn. The primary function of this role is to free up the time of another key member of our team, so she can focus more on EO, as such all training and support will be provided to the successful candidate during the phased handover.
