open position – IT manager

Open position as “Tecnologo” – 3 years position as IT manager

The SmartData@PoliTo center merges the competences in Big Data and Data Science of Politecnico di Torino, currently fragmented in several different departments, to build a well-recognized center, overriding the logic of departments and research groups by creating a largely interdisciplinary center, where experts in algorithms, data modeling, theory, business, and domain experts from various engineering disciplines work together in a single space by sharing problems and solutions. Data Science requires the use of complex computing resources and a suitable data management system.

For this reason, a technical reference figure is needed, able both to manage computing resources and to support the research groups in the use of those resources.

The IT Manager has to support the research activity of the Interdepartmental Center both by managing the IT infrastructure and the computing cluster, and contributing to its evolution during the Center’s activities. In particular, the IT Manager has the task of managing, updating, and maintaining the Big Data computing cluster with over 40 servers based on Hadoop and Spark technologies, with Ubuntu server Linux operating system, and Cloudera distribution.
