VMware Modern Data Platform Software Engineer - Opportunity for Working Remotely in Chicago, Illinois
Job Opportunity in VMware Research & Emerging Technologies Group
Multiple Positions - Hiring for Modern Data Platform Software Engineers
Are you looking for a startup-like experience? Are you curious to explore and learn a large range of technologies? Join us to incubate technology-forward products and services! The VMware Research and Emerging Technologies group seeks to hire talented software engineers who will help incubate new business opportunities based on cutting-edge research ideas in the area of modern data platforms. These research ideas, initially explored in VMware’s internal research group and/or our academic collaborations, are matured into new product offerings via VMware Research Translation (vRTX, pronounced “vortex”) projects. Typically, vRTX projects run for up to two years and develop software artifacts (technology previews, proofs of concept, minimum viable products) that illuminate the advantages of early-stage research ideas and serve as vehicles for collaboration with potential customers to assess product/market fit.
vRTX software engineers must have exceptional software development abilities, and a desire to learn and work with different technologies in a short period of time. Projects may pivot more frequently than roadmap products, and intensive customer interactions can put a high premium on rapid prototyping skills. The ability to work effectively with customer engineering teams on POCs is important. Teams are usually small, so versatility and teamwork are essential.
For the envisioned project, the ideal candidate will be knowledgeable about (and better still a contributor to) the state of the art in storage systems, embedded key-value stores, OLTP, OLAP, and interactions between key-value stores and database systems higher in the stack. SaaS experience is desirable. Distributed systems expertise is also desirable.
Role and Responsibilities
You will be contributing to architecture, design, and implementation of software project based on emerging research ideas in the area of key-value stores. These will initially be dynamic, evolving prototypes and MVPs
You will assist with debugging and verification of defects in your own and others' work
You may participate in customer meetings to understand use cases and requirements
You may participate in advanced development activities within VMware or in universities to advance the state of the art
You may participate in POCs and customer interactions together with our customer engineering teams.
Expertise in the project-specific technical areas including storage systems, key-value databases, and the integration of these components in modern big data ingest and processing pipelines
Production-level coding experience in C
Experience and demonstrated success in advanced development and/or research project implementation
Experience engineering systems for high concurrency and many-core scaling
Experience with modern storage-related data structures and algorithms
Experience with emerging technologies related to storage, such as pmem and NVMe
Experience creating SaaS database or data processing systems
Experience benchmarking and optimizing data systems
Exposure to multiple programming languages is important, as the ability to pick up and use the language that suits a body of work is expected
Experience in a range of system programming languages beyond C
Master’s (preferred) or bachelor’s degree in Computer Science with comparable work experience.
PhD in a relevant specialty would be a positive credential.
