Software/Systems Engineer - Platform Engineering - Edge 

Location: Remote

We are a fully remote software engineering team working on the company's next generation security platform. Our goal is to increase the security posture of all of our customers while building a collaborative and innovative engineering culture. We are a proud member of the Dell Technologies family and offer competitive benefit and compensation packages and reward and recognize our employees for exceptional results. 

The edge platform team focuses on providing an easy to deploy secure and reliable customer premise virtual appliance capable of data collection, orchestration and automation. The virtual appliance is based on k3s, a minimal kubernetes distribution. The team is expanding this solution to a clustered highly available deployment and is exploring leveraging additional open source components for fleet management and monitoring. We are looking for software engineers with systems and networking experience who are interested in building on leading edge technologies to provide integrated solutions for our customers.

The larger platform engineering team builds performant GraphQL APIs using Golang and Kubernetes for various features of our product, creating and reviewing designs for new projects, building robust software that other teams and customers can use, and collaborating with other internal and external engineering teams to solve problems, as well as building our internal authorization systems. If there is backend work we are involved in one way or another - and our goal as a team is to raise the bar of engineering practices across the larger organization.

Our primary tech stack for backend systems consists of Golang, Kubernetes, Postgres, and Elasticsearch, while the edge team leverages additional open source technologies such as Prometheus/Thanos, Nifi, ….

Skills and Requirements 

We expect to see:

  • 5+ years of Software Development experience

  • Previous systems engineering and/or networking experience related to virtualization and/or large scale kubernetes/cloud deployments.

  • Excellent problem solving skills and an ability to work through problems and get stakeholders and team mates to align

  • Excellent debugging skills with the ability to walk from edge to backend services and tracking where problems are happening

  • Self motivating and self directed, great at communicating complex ideas with remote teams

What we like to see (but not required):

  • Experience working with software defined networking.

  • Experience working with hypverv and/or vmware virtualization

  • Good working knowledge of cloud infrastructure (AWS, Azure, GCP)

  • Familiarity with micro/container os architectures

  • Working experience with cloud-init and/or other virtual machine bootstrap mechanisms

  • Experience evaluating and working with open source projects in the cloud native ecosystem (k8s,k3s,prometheus,thanos,helm)

  • Remote work experience with a geographically distributed team (currently we have teammates in  PST to GMT time zones)

  • Experience working with UI developers, product managers, and UX researchers

Work Environment

We are a remote first team and are geographically distributed across the US, Canada, and UK - we utilize tools like Mattermost, Google Meet and Zoom to facilitate communication and tools like Miro and Lucid Charts for diagramming and communicating ideas. We also believe in a strong work-life balance and providing support for team members to accomplish that. We are a family first company that values our team members and has benefits and a culture that will help them through important life events - such as taking care of family, parental leave, etc. We also value continuing education and skills development and have Tech Tuesdays where team members can present to the engineering organization, 3rd parties coming in and giving presentations, as well as training for services like AWS and Kubernetes.
