Maxar has an immediate need for a Systems Engineer to join our big-data platform team. As a Maxar team member, you will have the opportunity to closely support our mission partners, and your work will have a direct impact on mission imperatives. In this role, you'll work closely with our infrastructure and cybersecurity teams to create and maintain an on-prem infrastructure footprint in multiple data centers, hosting a diverse range of applications.
About Our Team:
We are a multi-faceted software development and systems administration team working to build and maintain software applications backed by a self-managed high-performance compute (HPC) infrastructure with a true big-data footprint (over 10 petabytes) on a private cloud system. We are responsible for the system from the hardware to the user interface.
We use a lean systems engineering approach, where one or two systems engineers are part of an agile, cross-function development and deployment team where SE is directly involved in supporting the delivery of value to the mission
Our diverse background of experience in mission support and software development serves as a catalyst to solve unique and challenging intelligence problems in support of special operations analysts and their on-going activities.
