Working at CSCS since
- 1998-2003 Bachelor in Computing Science, University of Almeria, Spain
- 2006-2008 Master’s Degree in Computer Science, University of Almeria, Spain
As a system engineer in the HPC Operations Unit, I’m specialised in administering large computing facilities.
Working at CSCS means to me
Except for maintenance days...it generally means a lot of fun! As a computer geek, I find it amazing having the opportunity to do really interesting things with state-of-the-art technologies, at a scale difficult to find anywhere else. Also, the work environment and culture facilitate balancing work and family life, which, to me, makes CSCS a great place to work.
What I like most about my work
There are many things I love about my job at CSCS, but certainly one of the things that I enjoy the most is resolving complex problems on our systems. Trying to understand why a specific piece of software or hardware is not working as expected, digging all the way through the different layers until finding the root cause, and then reaching a solution, is a fantastic feeling!
What challenges me at my work
Keeping up with technology advancements while making sure our resources are usable and delivered in the most efficient and fair way is an extremely challenging task. It requires constant effort and adaptation to changing situations, which ultimately makes it also very rewarding when things work for our users.
