About the role

HEO Robotics is the world’s first commercial in-orbit satellite inspection company. We help defence, governments, and commercial operators to visually monitor their spacecraft and other space objects they care about. We do this by transforming Earth observation satellites into in-orbit inspection cameras with our proprietary software and then generating insights through computer vision techniques. We are based in Sydney, Australia and have backing from Y Combinator.

We are looking for a DevOps Engineer with a strong coding background to join our growing team. You will be playing a key role in streamlining and automating our internal and customer facing processes running on and off the cloud with scalability and security in-mind.

We are a small team, so you will play an active role in planning, implementation and scaling our solutions as we continue to grow and push the boundaries of space technology.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Automate and optimise core product functionalities
  • Work closely with our space R&D engineers to implement scalable solutions
  • Improve and maintain CI/CD pipelines
  • Design, implement and maintain cloud operations with scalability in mind (HEO Robotics uses AWS)
  • Manage cloud infrastructure and security
  • Implementations of microservices
  • Manage integrations with third party apps

Qualifications and Skills:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer engineering, Computer Science, IT or similar field.
  • 2+ years of industry experience in DevOps and implementing cloud infrastructure on AWS.
  • Strong communication and documentation skills.
  • Solid project management skills
  • Extensive knowledge in:
    • CI/CD
    • Python
    • AWS
    • Building infrastructure as code
    • Database development
    • Cybersecurity
    • Container services (we use docker)
    • Microservices and API development

Previous work experience in aerospace and robotics sectors as well as web and API development skills are considered a plus.

This is a full-time role. You will be remunerated with salary (negotiable based on experience), superannuation (10%), employee share options, and 20 days of annual leave (plus all other applicable leaves under Australian law). We encourage both remote and Sydney-based applicants to apply for this role.

If you are interested in the role and eager to be part of a unique space start-up, please send your CV and project portfolio (optional) to our team.
