Senior Cloud Infrastructure DevOps Engineer
New Team, new Location, new Domain, real challenges are you ready ?

Since the inception of Electronic Design Automation we at Mentor (a Siemens Business) have been writing software to assist the best silicon design companies in the world to build the next generation chips through our suite of software called Calibre. As the chip designs get more powerful encouraged by Moore's Law our problem equally scales.

When a single designer needs over a thousand cores to aid their design then the solution is HPC in the Cloud. For this reason our customers are moving our products from their on-premise server farms into the Cloud. We are collaborating with the Cloud infrastructure vendors and HPC tooling vendors to adapt their offerings to our products as we design cloud based applications that will manage these dynamic cloud architectures, extend our cloud enabled offering and build new cloud native applications for the IC design space.

This is an outstanding opportunity to research, architect and automate customer and internally managed environments in public, private and hybrid clouds.
