Openings

The Scientific Software Engineering (SSE) Center at Georgia Tech, one of the four inaugural VISS Centers, aims to support the development of better quality, more sustainable scientific software. To achieve this goal, the Center will (1) give scientific researchers access to full-time professional engineers and state-of-the-art technology and techniques, such as high-end computing and storage resources, (2) support long-term scientific platforms and systems, and (3) encourage best practices in open science.

The SSE Center is building a team and is looking for professional software engineers at different levels of seniority who are excited about working in a highly dynamic and research-oriented development environment and can join us to help us achieve our goals. Experience with modern software engineering practices and tools, such as automated provisioning and CI/CD, is required, as well as the ability to work well in a team. An understanding of scientific software development and experience with open-source software are highly desirable.

In addition to receiving a competitive salary, the engineers will also be considered as either professors of the practice or adjunct faculty members of the College of Computing, depending on their level of seniority and degree. Furthermore, they will work with and get access to the Georgia Tech ecosystems, will be involved in exciting and highly visible research projects at the forefront of technology, and will have the option of teaching classes or being guest lecturers and mentoring students.
