We are currently searching for a Linux system administrator to work in central 
London to support and expand the computing infrastructure we use for our 
mathematical modelling of weather risk. This job involves managing our Linux 
HPC system, which consists of 2000+ CPUs, 100+ GPUs, a GPFS file system, Sun 
Grid Engine grid management software and various pieces of software such as 
batch-processing tools, R, Python, compilers and numerical models of the 
atmosphere, ocean and surface water. 

The ideal candidate would work very closely with our modelling team to help 
them use our hardware and software as efficiently as possible.

If you are interested, please send a PDF containing a cover letter and CV to, with the word 'sysadmin' in the title.



About RMS

Risk Management Solutions (RMS) is the world's leading provider of mathematical 
models and information related to the financial impact of natural catastrophes. 
We have a team of fifty PhD scientists and engineers based in London building 
mathematical models that predict the distributions of possible damage to 
property and agriculture due to tropical storms, extra-tropical storms, 
thunderstorms, droughts, storm-surges and freshwater floods. We use a 
combination of observed data, reanalysis data, numerical, statistical and 
engineering models and data assimilation. We are the pioneers in the 
development and application of complex statistical and numerical modelling 
methods for the quantification of natural hazard risk, and our risk models are 
the most detailed and comprehensive models of natural catastrophes produced 
anywhere in the world. Our clients include several hundred insurance and 
reinsurance companies as well as brokers, banks, hedge funds, regional and 
local governments, and multilateral agencies.
