[HIRING] Amsterdam, The Netherlands. HPC Cloud developer, Bright Computing, €60-80k

Hi all,

The cloud team at Bright Computing is hiring an Amsterdam-based software developer responsible for working on our integration with cloud resources. Mostly AWS & Azure for public cloud, vcloud/vsphere private cloud, with some openstack tossed in for some legacy code.

There’s not an option for remote work for this position, although we are (mostly) all working from home here in The Netherlands. We haven’t yet decided what we’re going to do post-covid, but we’ll probably land on 2-3 days per week in the office.

The text of job ad covers the basics of what we are looking for, I posted it below.

The salary range is 60-80k eur, and we offer some relocation assistance, but we’d prefer to hire from here in the EU. Don’t let that stop you if you’re outside the EU, though. For those of you coming into NL from outside the EU, The Netherlands offers a tax break in that you’re only taxed on 70% of your earnings for the first 5 years you’re here.

Note that I am not the hiring manager: I run the support team, I’m just helping out in posting this for the cloud team. That said, I can answer questions about the job/working at Bright, what we do, etc.


We have positions available for enthusiastic and experienced software developers for the development of cloud-related functionality in our Linux-based cluster software environment. You will be part of the team that is responsible for the integration of our product with public cloud providers such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, as well as with private cloud technology such as VMware vCloud/vSphere.

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, accelerators, high-speed interconnects such as InfiniBand, Omni Path and 100 Gig-E) and software technologies such as parallel filesystems (e.g. Lustre, GPFS, BeeGFS, WekaIO),VMware, OpenStack, Docker, Kubernetes, Jupyter 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 (i.e. exascale). Bright Cluster Manager makes it possible for organizations to seamlessly extend their on-premises infrastructure into one or multiple public clouds and to migrate workload (including input/output data) from on-prem to the cloud.

You are fluent in C++ and/or Python and intimately familiar with object oriented software design, design patterns, and concurrent programming techniques. The quality of your work is important to you, so you take pride in producing extremely clean code. Furthermore, you are eager to learn and use new technologies.

Knowledge of Kubernetes, AWS, Azure, GCE, OpenStack, Jenkins and distributed programming 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.

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.
