Who are we?

Meshcapade is the 3D digital human company. We are creating realistic human avatars for use in apparel, games, fitness, AI, and augmented reality. Using machine learning and computer vision, we model the nuances of human body shape and movement. We automatically convert photos, 3D & 4D scans, RGB-D sequences, Mocap and even words into realistic 3D humans. We are a spin-off from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany and our products are powered by state of the art, patented research. Our core product, Meshcapade Me, is an online platform for the creation, animation, and use of 3D digital humans. Our clients run the gamut of global names; a broad mix of tech, media, health and fitness, apparel, and education

  • Evaluate and recommend local and cloud-based solutions to enhance computational capabilities.
  • Implement and manage job scheduling systems to optimize GPU resource utilization.
  • Collaborate with vendors for local and cloud-based GPU resources procurement and optimization.
  • Provide training and support to users on GPU computing best practices and utilization.
  • Stay current with industry trends and emerging technologies in GPU-accelerated computing and machine learning.
  • Contribute to documentation and knowledge sharing within the team.

Who you are:

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in computer science, electrical engineering or related field.
  • Proven experience (5+ years) as an HPC Engineer with a focus on GPU clusters and Machine Learning.
  • Experience with HPC cluster manager & job scheduling software (e.g. HTCondor, Slurm, PBS, etc) 
  • Administration experience with Linux OS (e.g. SLES/RHEL/CentOS/Ubuntu etc.).
  • Good knowledge of the scripting language Bash and/or Python. 
  • Experience with Parallel file systems like GPFS/Lustre/Ceph/BeeGFS/Weka.
  • HPC system troubleshooting and support
  • Experience with network technologies (NVLink, Infiniband)
  • 3+ years of hands-on experience with cloud-based GPU computing (GCP, AWS)
  • Some experience with automation tools for configuration management (e.g. Ansible, Puppet, Chef) and revision control systems (e.g. Git)
  • Experience with containers (Kubernetes, Docker)
  • Familiarity with deep learning frameworks (e.g. PyTorch, TensorFlow) and their GPU optimizations.
  • Deep understanding of storage systems and high-speed interconnects commonly used in HPC environments (local and cloud-based).
  • Ability to work under pressure in a fast-paced environment
  • Strong attention to detail with an analytical mind and outstanding problem-solving skills
  • Great communication skills and an ability to develop effective relationships in a small team
  • Bilingual German and English is essential

Talent Acquisition Process:
