NEW Job ID: J-00268329

Job mission:

The mission of the team is to develop an in-house high-performance computation cluster system for high throughput eBeam inspection tool. The high-performance 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.

Ensure there is a platform where this software can run with high performance achieved and availability guaranteed. Design the software platform setup, the Computational Infrastructure virtualization layers, manages firmware updates, and provides a key set of numerical algorithm optimization services to manage the platform. The team is very strong on the technical aspects. A candidate with affinity towards team collaboration and technical excellency, picking up daily issues that arise and guide priority setting is encouraged to bring this forward.

Role and responsibilities

The hands-on job of a software engineer for HPC platform is responsible for the design, review and collaboration with computation infrastructure team for a future proof cloud and virtual compute platform with optimization on both in-house and at HMI’s customers. The stability of the existing platforms in the field and the introduction of the new platform with all its new opportunities and issues. You are profound in troubleshooting virtual computing platform both software and hardware, container virtualization, network, and other software issues even if these go beyond the platform. Robust definition of software & platform development processes, install, and upgrade (ansible, K8s, Container, Docker, shell script) is one of your duties.

  • Lead a team of 3-5 HPC software developers in the development of HPC related projects, ensuring that project goals are met within timelines and budget constraints.

  • Lead on daily stand-up meeting and report the project progress to PL and GL

  • Collaborate with stakeholders to define project requirements, ensuring that the product roadmap aligns with stakeholder needs and goals.

  • Drive product development from conception to delivery, ensuring that product requirements are met and that product quality meets or exceeds industry standards.

  • Define, track, and report on key project metrics, including project timelines, milestones, and deliverables.

  • Facilitate communication between manufacturing and development team (developer and architect) and PL, ensuring that stakeholder expectations are met and that project requirements are understood by all parties.

  • Manage project risks and issues, identifying potential roadblocks and developing mitigation strategies as needed.

  • Technical supporting and escalation supporting.

  • Support applications of the software to HPC in both research and production environments

  • Identify, design and implement the cloud architecture solutions to meet efficient and effective needs of image processing computing infrastructures for high throughput requirement

  • Analyze the performance of the computation system to help identify performance bottlenecks.

  • Enhancement, debug and maintain legacy computation software system.

  • Implement unit test and have good practice in integration test, regression test and documentation.

  • Maintenance and creation of Linux OS environment playbooks that are used in software deployment.

  • Support development teams at San Jose and other HMI-ASML sites where they experience potential software platform issues

  • Identifying the implications when a move from one software version to the next is required.
