Open Position

DevOps Engineer


The CCDL's DevOps engineer writes code to deploy CCDL-developed services and interfaces that meet the needs of researchers studying childhood cancer. These developments and deployments will serve a community of dedicated scientists and clinicians, including those who receive grants from ALSF. This team member will be expected to make sure that CCDL software is available and as cost effective as possible. The DevOps engineer will need to be able to select the most appropriate approach for the challenge at hand: some CCDL software will be primarily user facing, while other software will perform computationally intensive processing of large collections of data.

The CCDL position will provide the DevOps engineer with the opportunity to design, implement, and deploy data-processing systems as well as systems that enable the user-guided analysis and interpretation of large-scale datasets. This member of the team will need an understanding of how to efficiently find solutions across multiple settings to cloud-based compute infrastructure. Working in the CCDL also provides a unique opportunity to interact with the childhood cancer research community and its supporters at ALSF.
