About Parallel Works

Parallel Works makes HPC platforms highly productive and easy to use by your domain experts without programming efforts. It enables you to create and/or use powerful workflow automation solutions, custom-tailored for your business. Its technology has been used to create turnkey, pane-of-glass solutions for biomedical, AI, financial, logistics, engineering, materials science, and geospatial applications.

Parallel Works is based on the Swift parallel scripting language and the Parsl parallel scripting library, technologies developed by the Computation Institute of the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory. Our goal is to build a sustainable business that enhances the design, research and development efforts of our customers while supporting the development and innovation of parallel computing technology.


We are based in downtown Chicago at 1871, the bustling center for technology and entrepreneurship. We launched the company through an early investment from the Chicago Innovation Fund and are grateful for the continued support and guidance of those at the Polsky Exchange, 1871, and advisors throughout the Chicago area. 

Our growing team is comprised of technology, industry and business leaders. We have a laser focus on building tools that improve the accessibility of HPC to accelerate global productivity and innovation.
