The application of Software Engineering (SE) techniques in High Performance Computing (HPC) is an often discussed and difficult issue. The 'as a service' model approach rising from latest cloud computing trends provides an promising way to offer appropriate software engineering support for high performance computing. This paper presents and discusses the idea and concept for a Software Engineering as a Service (SEaaS) platform for HPC. It is designed to enhance efficient problem solving and implementation, to deal with limited resources, and to guide interdisciplinary teams. The service supports agile SE techniques, can be adapted for the depending HPC environment, is user optimized based on the preferred programming language and will be implemented as an open-source and app-like framework. The implementation and evaluation of the SEaaS app is work in progress.
