The Science Commons Initiative and the Microgrid Working Group are looking for a software engineer with a love of science and the desire to connect scientists with the compute resources they need!

You will need an understanding of Python and PHP (any c++ experience is definitely a plus), and loose familiarity with or a willingness to learn a bit of Blender.

In short, The SCI's Micgrogrid Working Group is developing a platform designed to connect researchers with compute needs to the distributed computing network BOINC. We will be interacting with researchers, discussing their needs, and designing and developing their computing applications that will run on the Microgrid platform.

Our MVP will be two applications that run on the BOINC infrastructure.

1. A prime number discovery application
2. A video/gfx rendering application

The SCI is a non-profit organization with limited funding, but we have set aside a small budget to get the Microgrid project off the ground.

If we successfully launch our MVP and a few subsequent applications, the project has the potential to turn into a fairly large OSS endeavor with long term positions available.
