We are seeking a cloud computing programmer at University of Chicago to be part of the Nimbus team.

About us:

The Nimbus Team is one of the pioneers in cloud computing for science. We released the first open source Infrastructure-as-a-Service implementation in mid-2005 and have since then developed platform-level cloud offerings. We work with scientists across many disciplines to understand how new technology can improve and transform science, develop and evaluate promising solutions, and support their practical use. The team consists of scientists, developers, and students working on different aspects of this mission. For more information see www.nimbusproject.org.

About the job:

Our team designs cloud computing solutions for a range of different scientific projects. We often work with problems that are more in the realm of discovery and research rather than well-defined blueprints. To thrive in this environment you need to be self-motivated, eager to try new things, and balance that with a strong appreciation of quality development. We are looking for a new team member that:

- Loves to solve problems and see the results: our work is not just pure development, but also includes discussing requirements, design, supporting users, performance evaluation and analysis, as well as research.
- Loves writing system code and is good at it: while it is more important to be able to pick up skills quickly than have them already, fluency in Python, RabbitMQ, Zookeeper, or cloud-related technologies such as Chef is a definite advantage.
- Will thrive as part of a creative team: “can do” attitude, curiosity, and a sense of humor are essential!
