About BSC

The Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS) is the leading supercomputing center in Spain. It houses MareNostrum, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe, and is a hosting member of the PRACE European distributed supercomputing infrastructure. The mission of BSC is to research, develop and manage information technologies in order to facilitate scientific progress. BSC combines HPC service provision and R&D into both computer and computational science (life, earth and engineering sciences) under one roof, and currently has over 700 staff from 49 countries.

Context And Mission

The eProcessor EuroHPC project combines open source software (SW)/hardware (HW) to deliver the first completely open source European full stack ecosystem based on a new RISC-V CPU coupled to multiple diverse accelerators that target traditional HPC and extend into mixed precision workloads for High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA), (AI, ML, DL and Bioinformatics). eProcessor will be extendable (open source), energy-efficient (low power), extreme-scale (high performance), suitable for uses in HPC and embedded applications, and extensible (easy to add on-chip and/or off-chip components).

eProcessor combines cutting edge research utilizing SW/HW co-design to achieve sustained processor and system performance for (sparse and mixed-precision) HPC and HPDA workloads by combining a high performance low power (architecture and circuit techniques) out-of-order processor core with novel, adaptive on-chip memory structures and management, as well as fault tolerance features. These software-hardware co-design solutions span the full stack from applications to runtimes, tools, OS, and the CPU and accelerators. This can only be done with a combination of SW simulation, HW emulation using FPGAs, and real ASIC prototypes that demonstrate the full stack feasibility of the hardware and software. Finally, while the applications we use span IoT to HPC, the ASIC implementation will be in a technology node that can easily be adopted for a near-future HPC implementation.

We are seeking one CI/CD DevOps Engineer to manage, support and maintain various CI/CD pipelines for the eProcessor, including for RTL simulation, for physical design and synthesis, and for software benchmarking and evaluation.

Key Duties

  • CI/CD Devops (Gitlab, Jenkins, Jira, Bugzilla) management, support and maintenance
  • Efficient interaction with all teams that use the CI infrastructures (RTL, Design Verification, Simulation, Physical Synthesis, SW, Performance Validation...)
  • CI pipeline improvements, e.g. CPU/memory load balancing, available licenses balancing, with interactions between dependent/conflicting pipelines
  • Deployment and support for machines at all levels (RTL, DV, PD, FPGA, simulation...) using tools like Ansible or Puppet


  • Education
    • Degree in Computer Science (or similar)
  • Essential Knowledge and Professional Experience
    • Experience with CI/CD management tools (Gitlab, Jenkins, Jira, Bugzilla...)
    • Good scripting knowledge (Perl, Python, Bash ...)
    • Some familiarity with Mentor, Synopsys, Cadence, Xilinx, and other EDA tools would be a plus
    • Docker containerization knowledge is also appreciated
  • Competences
    • Working independently and within a team
    • Working in close collaboration with all the different teams that will utilize the DI/CD infrastructure


  • The position will be located at BSC within the Computer Sciences Department
  • We offer a full-time contract, a good working environment, a highly stimulating environment with state-of-the-art infrastructure, flexible working hours, extensive training plan, tickets restaurant, private health insurance, fully support to the relocation procedures
  • Duration: Temporary - 1 year (renewal until the end of eProcessor, 3 years in total) renewable
  • Salary: we offer a competitive salary commensurate with the qualifications and experience of the candidate and according to the cost of living in Barcelona
  • Starting date: asap

Applications Procedure

All applications must include:

  • A Cover Letter with a statement of interest in English, including two contacts for further references - Applications without this document will not be considered

  • A full CV in English including contact details
