Job Description

We have positions available for enthusiastic and experienced Linux experts for the development of our Linux-based cluster management environment. You will be part of a team responsible for the development of our Linux based cluster management software.

There will be ample opportunity to develop your skills and to take initiative. You will have the opportunity to work with the latest hardware (e.g. GPUs, FPGAs, AI accelerators, high-speed interconnects such as InfiniBand, and 400 Gig-E and composable infrastructure) and software technologies such as parallel filesystems (e.g. Lustre, GPFS, BeeGFS, WekaIO), Spark, OpenStack, Kubernetes, OpenRAN and Ceph.

Our development team consists of highly skilled developers that are passionate about building a software product that meets our customers' needs today and in the future. With your help, we will be adding many new features to our product to allow Bright clusters to be used for a wider range of workloads, and to allow clusters to scale to hundreds of thousands of nodes (e.g. for exascale). We also target alternative CPU architectures such as ARM64, and further integrate container technology into the product to allow workloads to scale up and down easily on-premise, and to public clouds such as AWS, Azure & potentially other cloud platforms..

Required and Desirable Skills


You are a strong Python programmer and you are familiar with Unix shells and related tools (e.g. sed, awk). Furthermore, you possess excellent problem solving skills and you are eager to learn and use new technologies.

Experience with Ansible, high performance computing, edge computing, clusters, high availability, Jenkins, OpenStack, Ceph, and software packaging (e.g. RPM spec files) would be beneficial, but is not strictly necessary.


Our cluster management software is based on Linux. You should be very familiar with the Linux operating system and in particular with networking concepts in Linux. In addition, you are familiar with the most common software that is part of a typical Linux installation.

General Skills

Bright Computing is a young but rapidly growing company. We require people who are not only very skilled, but who are also flexible, reliable, can take initiative, can deal with responsibility, and have a "can do" mentality.
