Do you want to work in an engineering group which is reinventing HPC and working to put truly powerful tools and techniques in the hands of way more people than can use it today?

As an HPC Application & Performance specialist in EC2's engineering team, you'll wear many hats, including technical advisor, software developer and evangelist. You must possess a unique combination of deep technical skills and some business acumen and be strongly self-motivated by a drive to ensure our customers and partners are able to take full advantage of the services and software we build to deliver on their own HPC products and needs.

Ideally, you're someone who knows the current field of HPC solutions available to customers, has a view about the best way to use them, but also wants to help guide the broader HPC industry in new directions. You have immediate credibility with technologists and developers at all levels, from PhDs to CIOs. You love to share your passion with others and exhibit good judgment in selecting strategic opportunities to do so. You don't just want to be part of an industry movement; you want to be out front leading it. If this sounds like you, we'd like to speak with you.
