The landscape:

You will take charge of a hybrid computing platform, where parts are deployed on-prem and have public cloud computing instances incorporated as additional partitions. Some of the Cloud resources are static (as in, powered on and available 24/7) and some are on-demand. The environment is not fully production-proof and therefore still requires efforts for more automation and resiliency on top of the day-to-day operations and support handed to the end-users.

Your role in the landscape:

  • Central point of contact for all High-Performance-Computing (HPC) demands
  • Coordinate and manage suppliers and partners required to provide HPC services
  • Operate existing and deploy new HPC compute solutions when needed
  • Liaise with user departments to plan, design and/or implement Computing-related workflows or supporting features
  • Responsible for supporting the planning, implementation, availability, performance, security and maintenance of the high-performance computing infrastructure and application landscape
  • Develop long term HPC strategy
  • Host HPC community meetings to secure customer satisfaction and to discuss state-of-the-art technology
  • Manage HPC service

Your Profile - Essential

  • minimum 3 years of experience in system administration of Linux-based HPC clusters
  • understanding and proven experience in deploying and managing HPC infrastructure within a public cloud organization, e.g. AWS with ParallelCluster or MSFT Azure with Cyclecloud
  • proven experience with Workload Managers, e.g. SLURM
  • working knowledge of HPC technologies and architectures (CPU, memory, interconnect, MPI, storage)
  • Willing and able to take on new and unfamiliar IT technologies; constant learning and development
  • Strong motivation to help build and shape the organisation, structures, and processes
  • High level of self-reliance with the ability to work productively in a team, as well as autonomously
  • Fluent English language skills are essential
  • Bachelor’s degree in technology or computer science, or similar working experience

Highly Desirable:

  • experience with IaaC concepts and tools, e.g. Ansible is a big plus
