Who are we?

The Świerk Computing Centre (CIŚ) is one of the largest supercomputer centers in Poland. Our infrastructure not only supports “Maria” the only nuclear reactor in Poland, it is also utilised to crunch data collected by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the European XFEL (free electron laser). We are a young team of enthusiasts working with cutting edge technology.

We research, design and create novel IT solutions that provide accessible interfaces to huge computing resources. At work we use diverse range of technologies: asynchronous, parallel and high performance computing (HPC), proven frameworks like Django or React+Redux, SQL and NoSQL databases, Docker containers and orchestration techniques. At our core we are a research institute which translates to a creative atmosphere and personal development possibilities.
