Millennium Space Systems

Development Operations Engineer

Operational Research - El Segundo, CA - Full Time

Company Overview
Millennium Space Systems delivers affordable, high-performance space systems for exacting customers. At Millennium, you will be part of a close-knit team working on exciting technological problems. We work in an open environment where ideas are shared across all disciplines, and there are ample opportunities for advancement based on excellence as well as lateral movement into other disciplines. Superstars are welcome.

Job Overview and Responsibilities
As a Development Operations(devops) Engineer, you will work with many different teams within the company to improve our development operations. We are in the process of transitioning from small scale to large scale and we need to scale our devops correspondingly. We have started to build up our devops infrastructure, but we've barely gotten started, and we have no dedicated staff. We need you to help us build up to the point where devops is an integral part of our corporate processes across the board. It will be a challenge, but it will be rewarding, and the only expectations are, "Make it work. Well."

What we are looking for
We are looking for someone who will straddle the border between development and operations. We want someone who would be comfortable working as a system administrator or as a software developer. And someone who is comfortable working in a vacuum with high expectations. No one is going to micromanage you, but neither is anyone going to hold your hand. We are interested in results, not methods.

Minimum Qualifications

  • 2+ years of professional development experience or 5+ years of self-driven experience
  • 5+ years of Linux experience
  • A burning desire to learn new things and grow professionally
  • Experience with a customer-service provider environment
  • Automation skills in shell, bash, Python, and/or other languages
  • Experience with source code and version control tools such as Git

  • 2+ years of professional system administration experience
  • Strong understanding of GitLab and GitLab CI

  • Excellent communications skills with the ability to communicate with customers, peers, management etc. in both formal and informal situations

Bonus Qualifications

  • Strong understanding of Kubernetes
  • Strong understanding of virtualization and hypervisor technologies
