Fusion-io is seeking a Systems Software Engineer in San Jose, California. The software engineer will design and implement cutting edge software to enhance the performance and functionality of the Fusion-io IOTurbine product.
A major part of your responsibility in design and development of our server system will be to participate in any and/or all phases of the product development cycle from product definition and design to implementation.
Work on multiple projects in a fast-paced, exciting and rapidly growing environment.
A Bachelors degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or Electrical Engineering is required
A Masters degree in Computer Science is an added plus
Proficiency in C or C++ and a sound understanding of data structures and algorithms is required
Strong motivation or background to work on parallel and distributed algorithms to scale systems from machine level to application logic
Fusion-io is the pioneer of a new storage memory platform that significantly improves the processing capabilities within a data center by moving process-critical, or active data closer to the CPU where it is processed. Called shared data decentralization, this significantly reduces latency while increasing data center efficiency. Fusion’s integrated hardware and software solutions leverage non-volatile memory for enterprise-grade performance, reliability, availability and manageability.
Founded in 2006 by a management team with experience in transaction processing, high-performance networking, storage, superclusters, and computing and image processing, Fusion-io recognized that mechanical storage architectures do not keep pace with advances in digital processing power. This meant that despite major advances in technology, data processing was limited to the speed of legacy storage infrastructures. Without a solution designed to maximize their capabilities, modern CPUs sit idle while they wait for data to process.
Fusion-io solves the data supply problem with a new purpose-built solution. By combining hardware and software to develop a reliable storage memory platform, Fusion-io gives servers native access to data to accelerate enterprise databases and applications. This allows enterprises to significantly reduce complex and expensive high performance storage, high performance networking, and memory-rich servers. In addition to accelerating performance, Fusion’s storage memory platform also reduces energy consumption and total cost of ownership.
