Kubernetes Developer with Bright Computing


€65K - 80K a year

We have positions available for enthusiastic and experienced software developers for further development of the Kubernetes integration in our Linux-based cluster software environment. You will be part of a team that is responsible for Kubernetes deployment, monitoring and management in our Linux based cluster management software.

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), 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). Kubernetes integration is a key component of our software stack because our customers increasingly depend on it for running workload on their Bright clusters. Bright provides a seamless process for deploying Kubernetes on-prem, at the edge and in the cloud on a number of supported Linux distributions. In addition to handling deployment of Kubernetes, Bright also streamlines the process of getting workload up and running in Kubernetes, and allowing this workload to be monitored.

Required and Desirable Skills


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, Spark, 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.
