9 Jul 1 Sep Delft
Join our pioneering Quantum & Computer Engineering team, where you'll manage specialised ICT infrastructure and elevate the quality of research software to help shape the future of computing systems and network architectures.

Job description

As a Linux Infrastructure Engineer/Administrator, you will manage the ICT infrastructure for the Quantum and Computer Engineering (QCE) department at our faculty of EEMCS, which plays a pivotal role in tech-driven innovation. QCE's infrastructure includes multiple storage and high-performance computation clusters. You will also help develop high-quality research software.

This unique blend of both tasks excites you and is crucial for delivering top-notch solutions.

Your main tasks will include:

  • Developing a Roadmap: you will create a strategic plan for QCE's ICT infrastructure, advising management on essential investments in computing systems, tools, and software.
  • Operational ICT Management: this involves monitoring infrastructure use, managing user access, and swiftly addressing any incidents that arise.
  • Supporting Researchers: you'll assist our researchers who develop research systems and software, such as simulation platforms, through consultancy, code reviews and troubleshooting, ensuring their work runs smoothly.
  • Enhancing Software Quality: your efforts will contribute to improving the quality and efficiency of our software engineering processes, making a real difference to the team.

Your team

You will be an integral part of QCE's Technical Support Team, a small yet dynamic group composed of Software Engineers and Electronics Engineers. This team works closely with around 50 researchers and students within the QCE department. You'll collaborate daily with these bright minds, helping to drive innovation and support cutting-edge research. Your role is crucial in providing technical expertise and ensuring the seamless operation of the department's advanced computing and electronic systems. Together, you'll tackle challenges, push the boundaries of technology, and contribute to groundbreaking advancements in the field.

Why you will like us and the job

What is it that we do and offers you a great place to work? The Quantum and Computer Engineering (QCE) department at TU Delft is on a mission to revolutionise computing through the exploration of emerging devices such as qubits, memristors, spintronics, and graphene. Our interdisciplinary approach spans from the fabrication and operation of qubits to programming models, compilers, and simulation platforms. QCE is also home to a Network Science group that plays a crucial role in advancing our understanding and management of real-world complex systems, such as telecommunication, energy, financial, transport, and social networks.

The primary focus of this role is managing our intricate ICT infrastructure. This position is perfect for you if you not only have a passion for developing and managing complex ICT systems but also enjoy assisting researchers in creating software that optimises the use of this infrastructure.

Last but not least, compared to most employers, you will enjoy a generous amount of leave at TU Delft: with a 38-hour work week, you will have 29 days of leave! By opting for a 40-hour workweek, you accrue an additional 2 leave hours per week, totalling an extra 12 days of leave each year.

Department

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three scientific disciplines. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we all use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make completely sustainable and future-proof. At the same time, we are developing the chips and sensors of the future, whilst also setting the foundations for the software technologies to run on this new generation of equipment – which of course includes AI. Meanwhile we are pushing the limits of applied mathematics, for example mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. In other words: there is plenty of room at the faculty for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1000 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
