RENCI is seeking a talented individual for the position of a Sr. Distributed Software Developer and Architect to support the activities of the Network Research and Infrastructure Group (NRIG) in continuing to develop software solutions that enable a unique distributed federated cloud infrastructure managed by the group. NRIGdevelops and deploys a distributed software platform that enables federation and orchestration of heterogeneous cloud resources under different administrative controls. The platform is used for experimentation in distributed and networked systems as well as to enable new kind of computational data-intensive domain science.

The incumbent will focus their primary efforts on further developing the platform: its core features, application libraries and additional software elements. This person will be taking a leading role in designing the future architecture of the platform and the solutions for domain sciences built using the platform. They will work closely with other team members in designing and implementing new features within the architecture, as well as evolving the core functionality to improve stability, scalability and performance.

Responsibilities:
Software development: develop software and provide software development expertise to other team members in maintaining and evolving the software platform.

Software architecture: lead the effort to evolve the architecture of the platform and design the architecture of associated software elements in support of the requirements from various science domains.

Software packaging and quality control: support group efforts in helping package software as easy to deploy solutions for the community and recommend and implement procedures that ensure high quality of the resulting code.

Future funding: work closely with group members on generating future funding by providing ideas and input to the generated proposals to the federal government and the industry.
