We have built a platform for institutions to supply their excess CPU capacity to other institutions with high computational needs using open source Cloud & Grid-computing technologies.  We are seeking experienced and talented engineers from a (primarily Linux) background to further design, build, harden and extend our platform.   This will require you to delve deep into the workings of servers, networks, operating systems, virtualisation technologies and open source components.
