Hiring Linux admin, SRE and/or Python coding skills | for IaC, cloud on HPC | work in open source

Role overview

StackHPC is hiring junior/graduate HPC cloud engineers, site reliability engineers and Python software engineers to help deliver systems for organisations that tackle some of the great scientific challenges of the modern age.

Our customers - which include research institutes and prestigious universities, plus bioinformatics, finance and pharmaceutical companies - use cloud technology and software-defined infrastructure to run scientific applications at scale using OpenStack.

You may choose which aspects you focus on - site reliability and/or software engineering - working as a team to help design, deploy and evolve this infrastructure and the application environments. Optionally, you may also help develop our core open source product - a comprehensive development framework that covers all components, from provisioning onto bare metal and upwards: https://github.com/stackhpc.

It's a chance to embark on a learning journey together, to solve difficult problems within the broader cloud ecosystem, to help set and forge new technical standards, and to implement solutions that make a real-world impact on important and interesting projects.

We offer a supportive, inclusive and welcoming environment in which you can flourish, collaborating with accomplished colleagues keen to share their knowledge of scientific OpenStack and to support this thriving open source community. 

We'll be pleased to chat over a virtual cuppa, and to explore where this may lead.

  • Writing automation and/or product code with Python 
  • Deployment and admin of Linux
  • Config management - Ansible
  • Infrastructure lifecycle management - Terraform
  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC) approaches
  • Systems and process automation using Python and Bash
  • Supporting Docker containerisation methods
  • Development lifecycle tools, such as Git, Jira
  • Monitoring and reporting tools, such as Prometheus and Grafana

Skills you could grow into, with us

  • Software engineering with Python, in the open source community
  • Performance profiling, monitoring tools, and software performance optimisation
  • HPC application operations 
  • Design and deployment of OpenStack or other cloud services
  • Configuring and optimising object and file systems
  • System-level hardware and performance optimisation
  • Setup of HPC middleware
  • Orchestration with Kubernetes, and/or workload management with Slurm
  • Public Cloud (e.g. AWS, Azure or GCP)

Our current ecosystem - we'll help you get up to speed

  • CentOS, Ubuntu, RHEL, Rocky Linux
  • Ceph, Cinder, Manila 
  • Prometheus, Grafana, ElasticSearch, Kibana, Cloudkitty, Keystone, Horizon
  • Neutron, SRIOV
  • Nova, Magnum, Slurm, Kubernetes, Octavia

Joining salary and benefits

  • c.£40,000 - £55,000+ we're keeping an open mind
  • Annual bonus (up to 25%) based upon company performance
  • Discretionary relocation assistance 
  • Flexible working practices e.g. optional four day week
  • 25 days paid holiday
  • Pension contribution (tbd)
  • Generous stock option scheme
  • Support for travel to conferences and delivering presentations
