Introduction to the job

The mission of the team is to develop an in house computation cluster system for high throughput eBeam inspection tool. The computation system handles large data set, high data transfer rate and process computation heavy algorithms. Team is responsible for the design and implement a future proof software framework on top of cluster with dozens to hundreds or even more heterogeneous super-computer nodes. Review and collaborate with other functional groups on product requirements. Design and implement, Job Submission layer to handle front-end connection; Resource Management and Job Scheduling Layer to queue and distribute jobs basing on priority and resource requirement on heterogeneous resource pool; Job Process Layer to process variety of jobs in single or multiple steps with fault tolerance.

This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require the Company to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.
