Skoltech’s Deep Quantum Labs is seeking two highly-talented and fast thinking developers (level depends on experience) to utilize our new supercomputing facility. This facility is maintained and operated by CDISE (Skoltech) and opens the door to large-scale internationally competitive simulations (500000+ NVidia – Volta – GPU cores and 2000 CPU cores).

Ideal candidates should have some experience in scientific programming and some experience with high-performance parallel computing (for example OpenMP and MPI libraries – better Cuda, OpenCL and OpenACC); candidates would have mastered the Linux platform; they would be highly familiar with leading contemporary programming languages such as C/C++ (while many of the projects will be prototyped in Python/Tensorflow/etc.); and ideal candidates will be skilled with linear algebra.

Successful candidates will join a multidisciplinary, extremely focused and disciplined team. They will work closely with research scientists to accelerate existing programs (as well as program new concepts) using parallel computing. The output of the work will be internationally competitive simulations made possible on this top-level computing facility.

The first milestone will involve optimizing a high-dimensional matrix multiplier used to simulate quantum computers. It will be done jointly with
