Senior Software Engineer (f/m/d) Event Stream Processing

Job Description

Battery Accelerator – Senior Software Engineer Event Streaming 

In order for our society to transition the mobility sector and energy grid to renewable energies, the industry needs to produce battery cells on a terawatt scale. Manufacturing is at the forefront of this revolution to reduce scrap rates, accelerate ramp-ups of new production lines and shorten feedback loops to optimize processes more quickly. 

At Siemens, we build manufacturing from the ground up: from automation controls to large scale distributed systems and analytics which are fundamentally changing the way that batteries are being produced. And we mean fundamentally: our work will cut production times in half and save at least 5 percentage points of scrap for state-of-the-art Gigafactories. 

Join us to work on the next generation of integrated electronics, event stream processing and AI. You will be a part of the Battery Accelerator, an organization of multiple internal start-ups which self-responsibly engage with cell manufacturers worldwide, develop and execute pilots, and take complete ownership of their products. 

You will develop a data architecture based on event stream processing which will serve as the next level infrastructure to business logic authored by internal start-ups and external customers for the largest Gigafactories in the world.  

What you will do 
  • Aid the design of an event streaming platform (i.e., Apache Flink, Spark, ksqlDB) on top of a distributed messaging system (i.e., Apache Kafka) from state-of-the-art technologies to accommodate shopfloor data architectures with >1000 client devices 
  • Work with a team of 15 people including a chief event streaming architect, three senior system architects specialized in OT, connectivity, and deployment, and two international dev teams with SCRUM leads for the design, development, testing, and operation of the architecture 
  • Guide the survey of open-source methods, coach, and train the internal software team on the event streaming paradigm 
  • Lead the deployment efforts for customer-specific implementations of the architecture in cell manufacturing plants worldwide 
  • Work 50% from home and anywhere in the world, willingness to travel to Germany for in-person team workshops at least once per quarter 
What you bring .
  • 5 years of professional experience in software development for event stream processing: developed and commissioned event streaming analytics for distributed messaging systems 
  • Frist-hand practical experience with the implementation of micro-service architectures, distributed computing (i.e., K8s, Docker), data processing (i.e., Apache Kafka, Flink, Spark, ksqlDB) and API design 
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and ability to communicate your reasoning clearly 
  • Fluent and actively coding in program languages such as C, C++, Java, Go, comfortable with Linux as development environment 
  • Familiar with continuous software engineering practices, architectural design patterns around stream processing (i.e., router, dead letter stream, limited retention) 
  • Enthusiasm to build and scale an architecture hands-on in a fast-paced team 
  • You are fluent in English. Additional languages (i.e., German) are a plus 
  • Formal qualifications: excellent university degree or equivalent in the field of computer science
What we offer 
  • 2 to 3 days of mobile working per week as a future global standard
  • Attractive remuneration package
  • Development opportunities for both personal and professional growth 
  • 30 leave days and a variety of flexible working models that allow time off for yourself and your family 
  • Share matching programs to become a shareholder of Siemens AG
