Member of Technical Staff 2 - Core DataPath Team - San Jose, CA
The Opportunity -
This role is a crucial role for maintaining the quality of the Nutanix Distributed Storage Fabric (NDSF) - a high-performance shared-nothing distributed file system. This storage stack is the foundational piece to enable hyper-convergence and hybrid cloud solutions. The software defined storage helps us power infrastructure for all kinds of applications on all kinds of platforms. That coupled with a simplicity focused design makes the engineering problem both profound and rewarding. The engineer will take responsibility for end to end quality and work with a team with a deep understanding of systems internals and distributed file systems.
Design and develop reliable, efficient, high-performance data-path software for large-scale enterprise and hybrid cloud.
Develop an understanding of complex distributed systems and design innovative solutions for customer requirements.
Work on performance, scaling out, and resiliency of distributed storage systems.
Work alongside development, test, documentation, and product management teams to deliver high-quality products in a fast-paced environment.
Engage with customers and support when needed to solve production issues.
What you’ll bring
Completion of a bachelor’s or master's degree in Computer Science or a related Engineering field is required.
Familiarity with OS internals, distributed systems and good practices for design/implementation.
Hungry and humble attitude with a keen sense of working as part of a dynamic team.
The CDP team was the first team created at Nutanix. It is the team responsible for the Nutanix Distributed Storage Fabric (NDSF) - a high-performance shared-nothing distributed file system. The Stargate team is the "data-engine" of the distributed file system, which is responsible for handling all the IO requests, placing data, handling dedupe, compression and encryption, healing from failures, etc. The work for the Stargate team is challenging because designing an enterprise-grade distributed file system means that we have strict requirements of consistency and performance, and we always have to reinvent ourselves as newer and faster drive technologies emerge.
