Job Summary

Ericsson Global AI Accelerator (GAIA) is a unit that has been set up to accelerate our AI and Machine Learning capability. This central unit is chartered with the responsibility of building a high-end competence center that brings together a team of high-end Data Scientists, Data Engineers, Software Engineers and Machine Learning Architects towards the goal of enhancing Ericsson’s products and services portfolio with AI capabilities.

As part of the GAIA Platform unit we are looking for Infrastructure Engineering talent. The Infrastructure Engineering team will provide infrastructure capacity for all AI/ML project and system needs within GAIA and work together with the Production Engineering and Platform Engineering teams. The main approach is to integrate/extend existing private and public cloud infrastructures, rather than building new from scratch. The GAIA solutions are deployed across heterogeneous environments, so multi-cloud, hybrid-cloud, and WAN networking are key technology areas. In this role, you are expected to be a very hands-on leader, functioning as an individual contributor, as well as leading others.

•    Work with GAIA projects and development teams to provide relevant cloud infrastructure resources, using both internal and external (AWS/Azure/GCP) capacity.

•    Develop, document, and communicate an infrastructure strategy, including choices between internal and external cloud resources, on-prem solutions (Outpost/Azure-stack/Anthos) and WAN Networking solutions.

•    Being responsible for overall availability, reliability, problem resolution, root-cause analysis, service provider handling, in selected cases organize 24/7 on-call support

•    Evaluate and plan capacity of CPU, GPU, memory, storage, and networking resources to balance cost versus desired productivity and performance

•    Develop essential automation scripts and tooling to help quality assurance, maintenance, migration, and cost-control of infrastructure deployments.
 

Qualifications
•    7+ years of experience with infrastructure, platforms, networking, and software systems

•    3+ years of experience with leading teams of engineers and system administrators, strong communication skills, documented delivery-oriented approach

•    Strong software engineering experience with one or more of Golang, Java, Scala, Python, JavaScript, using container-based development practices.

•    Experience with usage/integration of public cloud services, for example, identity and access management, key management, storage systems, CPU/GPU, private/virtual networking, and Kubernetes services.

•    Experience with large scale systems, for example reliability/HA, deployment, operations, testing, and troubleshooting 

•    Experience with modern distributed systems and tooling, for example, Prometheus, Terraform, Kubernetes, Helm, Vault, CI/CD systems.

•    Experience with WAN networking solutions, redundancy/fail-over, QoS, and VPN technologies. 

•    Experience with Infrastructure-as-code and SRE ways-of-working

•    Familiarity with data analytics and AI/ML systems, for example, Spark, Jupyter, Tensorflow, 

•    Strong system administration skills, Linux and Windows

•    Awareness of ITIL/ITSM methodologies for operations and service delivery
