We have a vision and a mission to automate away highly operational tasks such as break/fix, cluster migrations, new service build-outs, abuse, etc. On any given day we work with engineering, product & project managers, test and automation teams on everything from architecture to developing strategic and tactical solutions.

There will be frequent opportunities to learn and improve your networking skills in areas like BGP and layer 7 services. You'll also have opportunities to contribute back into leading Open Source infrastructure projects such as Ceph, OpenStack, and OpenCompute.

  •  Design new hardware architectures for cloud products
