HDF Software Engineer - The HDF Group


We’re looking for a software engineer to work on the HDF5 library and related software. In this position, you will work on implementing new features as well as maintaining existing software. HDF5 is ubiquitous in the sciences, engineering, and high-performance computing, so you will frequently be assisting people working at the frontiers of their fields, which may mean anything from helping bioinformaticians map their complex data to HDF5 objects to profiling applications on the fastest supercomputers in the world. We use a wide variety of languages and technologies, and although much of the core library work will involve working in C, we also work in C++, Java, Python, and even Fortran.

We have several positions open and we are open to hiring at all skill levels, from entry-level to experienced engineers.

As an HDF Software Engineer, you report to the Director of Software Engineering. The HDF Group is based in Champaign, IL, which is the default job location, but remote work arrangements are available for suitable candidates. Compensation is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
