Distributed Systems Engineer Career Advice

Going to be finishing undergrad in a couple months. Super into distributed systems and have done some related research last year, and I would like to work on deploying and developing real systems in industry. A lot of the people in the field that I met were all academics. Is it feasable to get a roll like this in industry right after undergrad? Or are these mostly senior positions?

Iโ€™d start in a more generalist role such as simply backend. And then hone into specific things like distributed systems. As you find the problems you really like to solve youโ€™ll naturally drift in that direction. Would also try to join an infrastructure team at a tech company to have the best pathway.
