The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems is seeking a DevOps engineer with a diverse skill set to support the researchers and engineers in turning research into high-impact software.
Embedded in Tübingen's rapidly growing science and technology campus, the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems is an internationally leading research institute dealing with the fundamental challenges of artificial intelligence (AI) and related fields of machine learning, computer vision, robotics, haptics, and more. The institute has close ties to ELLIS, a Europe-wide research network in machine learning, the Cyber Valley initiative that connects researchers with startups and industry in the area, as well as the Tübingen AI Center, home to numerous leading AI researchers.
Part of the institute, the Software Workshop is a unique central scientific facility at the intersection between software engineering and research. It conducts research in the area of computer science and supports the departments and research groups of the institute in software development. Its main goal is to increase the quality and impact of the research at the institute, both internally and worldwide.
In this context, we are seeking a DevOps engineer to strengthen our team.
You will work closely with the software engineers of the institute and the members of the IT team. You will maintain and develop our software infrastructure, and contribute to various projects in the areas of machine learning, computer vision, robotics, haptics, and more.
Responsibilities may include
- Management and diversification of our in-house software infrastructure
- Optimization of our pipelines used during software development
- Training of the software engineers of the institute in using our infrastructure
- Contribution to research projects to allow deployment (e.g., Dockerization)
- Dissemination of good software practices (reviews, tutorials, workshops)
- Specific support of the IT team
- A B.Sc. or M.Sc. in computer science, electrical engineering or a related discipline
- Several years of experience in DevOps and software engineering
- Expertise in Linux, macOS, and Windows operating systems
- Expertise in concepts used in software development (planning, CI, CD…)
- Strong experience with DevOps-related frameworks (Docker, Ansible…)
- Experience with git
- Experience with Atlassian tools (Confluence, Jira, Bamboo…)
- Team-player attitude
- Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English
The position will be located in the Tübingen site of our institute as part of the Software Workshop team.
Salaries and contract will be based on previous experience according to the Public Service Wage Agreement (TVöD) guidelines. This is a full-time position. The position is initially limited to two years with the possibility of a transition into a permanent position. With us you receive a financial contribution to the job ticket (ÖPNV) and the possibility of mobile working.
