Platform Engineer - SKA Low Telescope

Updated: about 1 month ago

The SKA Observatory (SKAO) is a next-generation radio astronomy facility that will revolutionise our understanding of the Universe and the laws of fundamental physics. Enabled by cutting-edge technology, it promises to have a major impact on society, in science and beyond.

In Australia, the SKAO is collaborating with CSIRO to operate and support the construction of the low frequency telescope (SKA-Low) in remote Western Australia on Wajarri Yamaji Country.

The Traditional Owners and native title holders, the Wajarri Yamaji, have gifted CSIRO with the traditional name Inyarrimanha Ilgari Bundara for the CSIRO Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory, home to the SKA-Low telescope. The traditional name means ‘sharing sky and stars’ in the Wajarri language.

The Ska-Low Platform Engineer will be part of the new Site Reliability Engineering team. They will be responsible for the deployment, configuration and support of a consistent, integrated and unified set of computing and software platforms and services for the SKA-Low Telescope. These include clusters installed at the Science Processing Centre at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Perth, the Integration Test Facility (in Geraldton) and on site at Inyarrimanha Ilgari Bundara, CSIRO’s Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory.
