ESnet provides direct connections to all major DOE sites and CERN, at high bandwidth, peering connections with Internet2, Regional Optical Networks (RON), and others, including high-speed connections to international networks, as well as private and shared peering to more than 150 networks.
In this role you will work in a collaborative, results-driven development environment on a wide array of software projects and strategic initiatives that support the current network as well as contributing to the implementation of a federated software environment that will support future network infrastructures. As a member of the ESnet's Software Group you will consult and collaborate with ESnet users, peer ESnet organizations, and peer Research and Education (R&E) and Regional Optical Networks (RON) software architecture, engineering and operations teams. You will perform software development, implementation, testing and operational support for the production quality software underlying the current and next-generation ESnet network.
This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs; and skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.
What You Will Do:
Participate as a member of an interdisciplinary team in designing, implementing, testing, and maintaining production software and visualizations used by the NSF funded NetSAGE project to observe and analyze how Research and Education Networks are used in practice.
Participate on project teams to successfully develop and complete project scopes, on time and within project budgets.
Use understanding of current development technologies and programming, independently write software from user stories, specifications and designs.
Recommend and lead implementation and deployment efforts for small projects and/or software improvements that enhance reliability, stability, usability, performance and security.
Troubleshoot and solve problems of diverse scope where analysis of data requires evaluation of identifiable factors.
What is Required:
Bachelor's degree and a minimum of 5 years of software engineering experience; or three years and a Master's degree; or equivalent work experience.
Experience with the Unix/Linux development environment.
Understanding of common data structures and algorithms.
Experience with web APIs such as REST, GraphQL, gRPC.
Experience with UX Design and Data Visualization.
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Experience with network measurement protocols such as SNMP and Netflow.
Experience with time-series data collection and analysis; and statistics and statistical modeling.
Experience with Grafana; particularly custom plugin development.
Experience with one or more of Typescript, React.js, d3.js, node.js, Django, C/C++.
Experience with one or more database technologies including PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch.
Experience working with Google Cloud Services or Amazon Web Services.
Experience with Agile software engineering practices that include testing, documentation, source code management (ideally Git and Github) and release procedures.
Knowledge of Internet networking and protocols.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a full-time, exempt, 1-year term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
This position will be filled at the Computer Systems Engineer 2 or Computer Systems Engineer 3 level, dependent on experience.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
