EngineeringEngineering – especially software engineering is a field that is constantly evolving. Effective software engineering requires software engineers to be educated about good software engineering best practices, disciplined and cognizant of how your company develops software, the operation it will fulfill, and how it will be maintained.

In this week’s tech recap, we take a look at the Evolution of Engineering Skills Required, Latest Gartner Analysis, Software Engineering Talent Shortage & Senior DevOps Career Opportunity.

Engineering Evolution: Why having Kubernetes experience matters.

Engineering has come a long way. Looking at how most things are set up today, engineering has created devices, machines, and software that can solve some of our most complex problems.

When it comes to software engineering, having Kubernetes experience has become an asset for those pursuing careers in the software engineering space.

So, what exactly is Kubernetes?

How Can Companies Navigate the Software Engineer Talent Shortage?

It’s undeniable that there’s a software engineer talent shortage in the U.S. If you’ve had to hire a software engineer in the past few years, you’ve likely felt the pain firsthand. Right now, talent shortages in the U.S. have hit a 10-year high.

Even pre-pandemic, a 2018 report by Korn Ferry found that the global talent shortage could climb to 85.2 million workers by 2030.

As a result, software engineer job postings can end up stagnant and unfilled for months at a time.

Now, how do we solve it?

Career opportunity: Senior Devops Engineer – Kubernetes

The first article we shared earlier talks about why having Kubernetes experience matters in the software engineering space, and how we have an interesting career opportunity for you.

We are seeking a highly motivated Sr. DevOps Engineer to join the Enterprise Data Services. Working very closely with Data Science, Software Developers, QA, and Product/Project Managers you will play an active role in designing, building and deploying a large scale machine learning platform to support aerospace use cases.

We are looking for solid DevOps engineers who have some experience with distributed compute and large scale data frameworks. We currently use Airflow, PySpark (EMR), Elasticsearch, S3/Parquet, and heavily leverage Terraform, Ansible, Jenkins, Kibana, and Kubernetes to provide reliable, sustainable, performant and secure infrastructure services.

Our Platform Team builds tools used by data scientists that support vital segments of the company. Some projects include: predicting part failures on the industrial products we build (from jet engines to radar units to compressors used in space), project manufacturing demand, or models to help with airplane fleet management.

This role requires an expert level DevOps Engineer and a willingness to dive into complex problems to help the team find elegant solutions. How you communicate and approach problems is important to us.
