EMEA Science Gateway Engineer

Job Summary

Europe and the UK are increasingly promoting and funding Science Gateways and other research collaboration platforms.

MathWorks is seeking an experienced professional to engage with European Science Gateways, (SGs) with the goal of connecting the researcher end users of these platforms to MATLAB and related tools. The role will include supporting the Science Gateways through the lifecycle, from identification of the relevant Gateways, to working with the SGs to determine the best offerings, and to guiding the partnership through the implementation and adoption phases.

The ESGE will build on MathWorks history and best practices for working with Science Gateways and extend them, including collecting learnings and key requirements from the field, developing new models of collaboration and computation, and enabling MathWorks to create new offerings.


  • Identify optimal Science Gateways to work with, in partnership with MathWorks teams focused on science, research, and education
  • Engage Science Gateway owners and PIs to discuss and select optimal MATLAB options
  • Share learnings, recommendations, and requirements from the field with MathWorks
  • Learn trends and dynamics across science markets and the role that SGs play in each, including tracking relevant science collaboration platforms and projects
  • Partner with MathWorks teams to support Science Gateway communities of MATLAB users
  • Develop guidelines and other online-accessible tools for use by MathWorks and SG staff who are considering and/or supporting MATLAB tools on SGs

Science Gateway missions have grown as they add and combine the functions of compute and application software hosting, data provider, education resource aggregator, and research collaboration facilitator.

There are multiple MATLAB tools, beyond the the well-known desktop MATLAB, that are relevant for centralized research collaboration and computing. A sampling of these tools includes:

  • MATLAB Live Editor
  • MATLAB Online
  • MATLAB Drive
  • MATLAB Onramp
  • MATLAB Parallel Server
  • Toolbox and app packaging and sharing (via GitHub and File Exchange)
  • Source code control and testing

The ESGE will report into the EMEA Education Market group and will work closely with MathWorks Science Gateway evangelists in North America. Travel will be an important part of the job (25-40%) to develop and build relationships, including attending and participating in relevant research conferences.

Minimum Qualifications

  • A bachelor's degree and 7 years of professional work experience (or a master's degree and 5 years of professional work experience, or a PhD degree) is required.

Additional Qualifications

Requirements include:

  • Science or engineering degree (e.g., Neuroscience, Biology, EE, or CS)
  • Several years experience in 1) academic research or 2) non-profit or public sector work involving tools and platforms for scientists and engineers (such as government program or funded project work), or 3) a commercial-industry based technical marketing, selling, or business development role involving scientific software support or development.
  • In addition, excellent written and verbal communication, interpersonal, and project management skills are essential attributes of the qualified candidate.

Additional desirable skills include:

  • Comfort with software business and licensing models
  • Working knowledge of MATLAB and/or similar technical computing software
  • Ability to evaluate and work with 3rd party products and partners
