Senior Scientific Software Engineer - The Met Office

The Met Office operates a large operational High-Performance Computing (HPC) facility based on Cray XC systems. Over the coming year all operational services will be migrated to a new HPC facility provided by Microsoft and based on Cray XE systems ( The HPC is used to run large numerical models of the atmosphere and earth systems for weather and climate prediction and also post-processing systems which enhance the output from weather forecast models to generate more usable weather forecast data. We are seeking contractors with experience in FORTRAN and C++ on large Linux systems to work within our team during the porting period to support the additional work required for porting these post-processing systems from the old HPC to the new one.

There may be an opportunity for further extension to support these systems after the initial porting is complete.
