Jobs

Q-Leap is looking for talented and motivated individuals to join its team.

You’ll be a top candidate if you

  • Are excited about working on Linux and new innovative solutions that will change the HPC software landscape.
  • Enjoy analyzing problems and figuring out smart solutions.
  • Want to take personal responsibility for your success and the success of our team.
  • Are self-motivated and open to working remotely.
  • Value open-source principles and are eager to contribute.
  • Have good English language skills both in speaking and writing.

All our technical employees are working on some aspect of Qlustar, be it developing its core software, supporting our customers who run Qlustar-based clusters or designing new HPC/Storage systems based on Qlustar for them. For any of these tasks, a good understanding of the different levels Qlustar operates on, is necessary. These are: Low-level system related (Linux kernel), operating system service related (Filesystems, service daemons, system startup, networking) as well as system management related (provided by QluMan).

The focus of any team member is on one or more of these layers/tasks, while there is a lot of flexibility to switch between them. The general term for such mixed positions is DevOps, meaning a mixture of development and operational tasks. At Q-Leap, the mixing ratio between the two components is individual and distinguishes the following job openings we currently have.
