We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to join our System Services Engineering Team! 

Isilon Systems, a division of Dell EMC, is the leader in scale-out storage systems and is transforming the way data is stored.  At the forefront of the Big Data movement, our highly parallelized, distributed architecture has completely redefined the storage model.  Isilon’s OneFS clustered storage and data management solutions enables enterprises and research organizations world-wide to manage massive and rapidly growing amounts of file/block based data in a highly-scalable, easy-to-manage, and cost effective way.

The System Services team is responsible for implementing services for management of the cluster and infrastructure for supportability of the cluster by the customer, support engineers, and internal components.  These services include business critical support for upgrading, determining customer usage, cluster health, and secure support and recovery.

In this role, you’ll help design and implement the next generation of software to keep those business critical services at the state of the art and customer-friendly in a multi-threaded, distributed environment.  You’ll also work with teams across Engineering to provide training and investigate issues with the cluster infrastructure.

Applicants need an interest in distributed, scalable systems, and should be fearless in frequently transitioning between programming (C) and scripting (Python) languages.  Applicants also need to be self-motivated and embrace a culture of technical excellence and high-quality execution.


  • At least 3 years of industry experience developing production quality code for products or services
  • Experience in developing network server software, storage systems or I/O sub-systems in a multi-threaded, distributed environment
  • Exceptional C/C++ programming skills
  • Excellent software architecture, design, implementation, test, debugging and problem-solving skills
  • Ability to work successfully as part of a team
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • BS in Computer Science/Engineering or equivalent work experience

Desired Expertise:

  • Client/server network services using POSIX/Windows sockets
  • Familiarity with the FreeBSD or other POSIX/UNIX operating systems
  • Experience in implementing and optimizing massively scalable algorithms is a plus

We offer highly competitive salaries, bonus programs, world-class benefits, and unparalleled growth and development opportunities — all to create a compelling and rewarding work environment.
