Careers in high performance computing
Welcome to the Digital & Scientific High Performance Computing team, which is part of the overall Shell's Projects & Technology, where we leverage the latest technologies and innovations to solve complex problems in the energy industry.
Energy transition is the biggest challenge that our generation faces today, and we are using our skills to address some of these challenges. Our researchers are experts in large-scale AI (Artificial Intelligence), scientific computing, parallel programming, accelerator programming, and code optimization. We work with exceptionally large multi-dimensional data sets that can reach into the terabytes and beyond and perform large scale simulations on the latest generation hardware infrastructure to process and analyze data from all aspects of the energy value chain. We are developing new capabilities in Weather and Climate Modeling, AI for Sciences, Large Language Models, Seismic Imaging and Interpretation, Reservoir Modeling, Computational Fluid Dynamics and more.
We believe that innovation, collaboration, and excellence are key to our success. Our team is constantly exploring modern technologies and techniques to solve complex problems and deliver results that make a difference. We work closely with our colleagues in other technology groups and external industrial and academic partners to ensure that we bring performance and scalability to our workflows, leveraging the latest advancements in our field.
At the heart of our work is performance engineering. We are passionate about optimising the performance of our systems and applications to deliver speed, accuracy, and reliability. From developing new algorithms to parallelizing existing codes, our team is dedicated to delivering results that are both fast and accurate.
What do we do ?
Research and Innovation
Our team at Shell applies the latest developments in advanced computational algorithms and HPC infrastructure for tackling problems in energy transition. Our goal is to look for new opportunities that enable us to make a positive impact on the world by enabling lower carbon solutions. Through collaboration with colleagues from across Shell and with leading academic and industry partners, we are driving innovation and shaping the future of the energy industry.
Large Scale AI
The team develops cutting-edge solutions at the convergence of HPC & AI, including training, finetuning, optimization and deployment of large language models, generative AI, and subsurface imaging models. We collaborate closely with colleagues across the company to optimize our HPC solutions for maximum performance, enabling us to handle enormous volumes of data.
Through our work, we empower our colleagues to make better, faster decisions and stay ahead of the curve in the energy industry. We are building a platform to democratize access to our in-house Supercomputer for the AI community at Shell, making it easy to harness the power of large-scale compute.
We work on projects to leverage the power of Shell’s on-premises and cloud infrastructure to simulate and model complex physical processes, such as fluid dynamics, geomechanics, reaction mechanisms, and seismic wave propagation. By gaining a better understanding of subsurface, predicting asset performance, and optimizing operations, we help Shell to make better-informed decisions and drive more efficient operations. Our team leverages advanced numerical techniques and high-performance computing systems to speed up computations.
If you are interested in working on the most challenging and exciting problems in the energy transition, and if you share our passion for innovation, collaboration, excellence, and performance engineering, we invite you to join us. Our team is looking for talented individuals who are committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible, and who want to make a real difference in the world.
