Job of the Week: HPC Storage Infrastructure Engineer at NERSC

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

NERSC is seeking an HPC Storage Infrastructure Engineer for its Storage Systems Group. This group is responsible for architecting, deploying, and supporting the high-performance parallel storage systems relied upon by NERSC’s 7,000 scientific users to conduct basic scientific research across a wide range of disciplines.

The HPC Storage Infrastructure Engineer will work closely with approximately eight other storage systems and software engineers in this group to support and optimize hundreds of petabytes of parallel storage that is served to thousands of clients at terabytes per second. Regular cross-team collaboration is required to integrate storage systems into NERSC’s computational and networking infrastructure, troubleshoot performance issues at scale, and develop innovative solutions to continuously optimize operational and user productivity. Beyond NERSC, this position will also work with peers at other leading HPC facilities and vendor engineering teams to evaluate emerging storage technologies and define future directions for deployment.

This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs; and skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.

What You Will Do:

  • Monitor, administer, and optimize NERSC’s distributed parallel file systems, block storage arrays, tape libraries, and/or auxiliary Linux-based storage servers.
  • Analyze, troubleshoot, and resolve complex problems that arise in NERSC’s production storage hardware, software systems, storage networks and systems that utilize NERSC storage systems.
  • Assist with architecting and evaluating storage systems and technologies based on analysis of user requirements, storage industry trends, and system monitoring and telemetry.
  • Participate in the planning and execution of cross-team maintenance activities, upgrades, and deployments at scale.
  • Provide off-hours emergency support in a shared, on-call rotation for a subset of NERSC storage systems.
