At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern.
Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
CERN IT department Data Center Operations team is handling comissioning, asset management, monitoring and daily operations of more than a 1000 racks and more than 15000 systems installed in multiple on-site locations.
You, as a team member, will participate in design and implementation of integrated Data Center Power Distribution and Environmental Sensors Monitoring and Management system using IT provided tools and services such as Puppet, Collectd, Grafana, Service Now, OpenDCIM and in-house tools as Podium (power monitoring system), DIP (distributed messaging system).
The system will provide end-user interface and/or tools allowing for management of power distribution units (performing firmware updates, power outlets switching, remote configuration, ...), and per outlet / per phase monitoring of each individual unit as well as monitoring of unit groups (per rack/row/pod and/or power source/computing room). Real-time (where feasible) monitoring information shall be provided in central monitoring Grafana displays and fault reporting / alarming shall be performed using Service Now.

At an intergovernmental meeting of UNESCO in Paris in December 1951, the first resolution concerning the establishment of a European Council for Nuclear Research (in French Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire) was adopted.Two months later, an agreement was signed establishing the provisional Council – the acronym CERN was born.Today, our understanding of matter goes much deeper than the nucleus, and CERN's main area of research is particle physics. Because of this, the laboratory operated by CERN is often referred to as the European Laboratory for Particle Physics.
Physicists and engineers at CERN use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles. Subatomic particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives us clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. We want to advance the boundaries of human knowledge by delving into the smallest building blocks of our universe.
The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 23 member states.
