Nutanix is the fastest growing software infrastructure startup in the last decade and we’re expanding our team of world-class programmers to architect, design, test, and implement our super-scalable compute and storage infrastructure for enterprise-class virtualization. Nutanix is able to provide Google-like distributed data center technology to the masses; bringing the public to the private cloud.
building the software-defined computing platform for next-generation data centers that will be scale-out, flash-enabled, and converged. Data centers of the future will run on commodity x86 servers, with most services being virtual (software-defined). We’re building a distributed system that collapses compute and storage into a single tier of machines, and our vision is to fuse the public with private clouds; seamlessly. We aim to enhance special-purpose storage appliances that sit multiple hops away from a general-purpose compute, just like Hadoop did for big data workloads.
The Software Engineering Team
Nutanix engineers are creating a revolutionary technology, building the software defined data center. We’re using our love of programming and outstanding backgrounds to change the way companies virtualize their data center. At Nutanix, you’ll find no shortage of challenging problems to work on. We work closely with our product in a collegiate, collaborative environment that encourages the open exploration of ideas.
