Job Summary

Our company is disrupting the multi-billion dollar virtualization market by pioneering the first converged compute & storage virtualization appliance that can incrementally scale out to manage petabytes of data while running tens of thousands of virtual machines. This brings with it new challenges in managing a cluster of distributed systems. It is also a hard problem to address the troubleshooting and debuggability/serviceability aspects of these complex systems. 

This person will be part of the Platform Solutions team and will be working at the hardware-software boundary to develop a number of tools and interfaces that implement a hardware abstraction layer. Their software is shipped on all company systems and is used by customers, partners, and internal users and provides support for qualifying hardware platforms, imaging systems, managing firmware, monitoring hardware, and exposing a common, underlying hardware abstraction layer. Most of their tools implement RESTful servers, include user-friendly UIs, and are independently versioned and released. They are the main engineering team that works with major server vendors like Dell, Lenovo, and IBM to get our software running, integrated, qualified, and shipped with their hardware. The team has high and increasing visibility as we target the ultimate goal of allowing company software to run on any hardware.?
