REQ#: RQ43434

At GDIT, people are our differentiator.  Our work depends on a Senior HPC Software Systems Engineer joining our team to support the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Weather and Climate Operational Supercomputer System (WCOSS).  This position is 100% remote.

WCOSS provides NOAA the operational High Performance Computing (HPC) resources essential to process sophisticated numerical models used to predict and understand atmospheric and oceanic phenomena for weather and climate operational use.  Operating 24/7, the next 10-year WCOSS program will deliver significant computational capability that will evolve over time to keep pace with NOAA’s growing environmental modeling needs.

We are looking for individuals to join GDIT’s team to deploy, operate and support leading-edge technology for WCOSS.  Specific technology training will be provided.

We think. We act. We deliver. There is no challenge we can’t turn into opportunity.

In this role, a typical day will include:

  • Formulation and definition of specifications for complex HPC software components, including the following:
  • Operating Systems, parallel file systems, compilers, batch queuing, programming environment, message passing interface, debuggers, and performance profilers.
  • Evaluation, testing, and implementation of new and existing software products.
  • Assist other project team members to effectively utilize the system’s technical software.


  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent and 15+ years of experience working in all phases of software systems programming applications to include significant experience in a large scale high-performance computing environment.
