  • Assist in technically managing initial storage implementations including proofs-of-concept;
  • Diagnose bottlenecks and implement clean and performant solutions to achieve unbeatable performance; 
  • Design algorithms and data structures to make sure customer data is safe and coherent across our solution in a wide variety of failure modes; and
  • Constantly revisit the architecture, algorithms, and methodologies to improve productivity, reliability, and maintainability.

  • A thorough understanding of concurrency, inter-process communication, threading models, and synchronization concepts, including significant experience with complex multithreaded software design
  • Experience with lockless synchronization techniques
  • 5+ years of hands-on experience with Linux development and debugging, along with a broad knowledge and understanding of Linux internals
  • Experience identifying, reproducing, and resolving complex software defects, including root cause isolation, tracing through large source codebases, and implementing long-term fixes as well as short-term workarounds
  • A strong team-oriented spirit and a highly motivated individual skilled in coordination and communication
  • A positive, creative, and open-minded problem solver.

It's nice if you have:

  • Experience in data-path design and development
  • Experience with the development of highly-distributed systems
  • Deep familiarity with concepts and features from the storage industry, including snapshots, replication, transparent data migration, and data reduction techniques
  • Experience with ZFS, XFS, or other file systems or with enterprise storage solutions
