  • Abstract: Globus’ mission is to accelerate and improve the practice of science. We develop, operate, and sell commercial-quality, cloud-based software application and platform services used by 10s of thousands of researchers globally to manage their large-and-growing data management challenges. Globus has become the preferred way to transfer, share, publish, discover, and automate research data for hundreds of organizations worldwide, handling several petabytes of data per week.
    In this talk, I will introduce Globus and various challenges that it solves for scientists. Then I will explore the technology behind Globus, including the design, implementation, and operation of our various cloud-based services, built on Amazon Web Services; how we integrate with various on-prem and public cloud storage; and the Globus Auth security platform that underpins all of Globus and many third party apps and services. I will also discuss our future Globus Automate service for trigger-action based research automation.
    We are looking for a few great programmers to join our team ( We operate as a sustainable, non-profit business within The University of Chicago, run like a startup.   We have offices in downtown Chicago, Chicago’s western-suburbs, and San Diego, plus many remote employees.  Come learn more about what we do and how we do it, and meet some of the Globus team.
