About the Company

Qumulo is the unstructured data platform to store and manage exabyte-scale data anywhere – at the edge, in the core data center and in the cloud. With unstructured data growing in more locations faster than ever before, enterprises today need a way to store, manage, and curate data simply and efficiently in any location, on any platform. This is precisely what Qumulo was founded to accomplish.

At Qumulo, we are building an open and collaborative culture where people can do their best work with customers as our magnetic field. We act as owners, we share by default, we are data driven and experimental and as an inclusive workplace, we encourage and celebrate multiple points of view. As part of our culture we believe diversity drives innovation.

About the Position

Engineers working on core services build the modern distributed storage engine that powers our on-premises and cloud products along with the various services that help customers store, access, and protect their data. The software stack includes a distributed and fault-tolerant block storage layer, a transactional file system, and multiple access protocols and replication/backup features. If you're excited about working on industry-leading data storage software that scales to multiple petabytes with sub-millisecond access latencies, and allows customers to run all their unstructured data workflows on one platform, we want to talk to you!

Software Engineers at Qumulo work alongside people who crave collaborative coding environments. It's a community where individual engineers have a voice, and teams have the autonomy to drive their own progress.
