VMware Senior Software Engineer - Cloud Native Runtimes (Knative Serverless) - Opportunity for Working Remotely in Atlanta, Georgia

Why might you be interested in this opportunity?

We’re focused on providing Kubernetes abstractions that speak to application developers. We build the foundational developer component of Modern Applications Business Unit (MAPBU)’s Tanzu portfolio (https://tanzu.vmware.com/tanzu) to help customers build, run, and manage their most important applications.

Our team is responsible for building and packaging the Cloud Native Runtime (https://https://docs.vmware.com/en/Cloud-Native-Runtimes-for-VMware-Tanzu/1.0/tanzu-cloud-native-runtimes-1-0/GUID-cnr-overview.html) (CNR) in the Tanzu Application Platform, a commercial offering of the Knative serverless application runtime for Kubernetes. Knative simplifies running serverless containers by taking care of “boring but difficult” details such as networking, autoscaling (even to zero), and revision tracking, allowing developers to focus on business needs. Additionally, Knative provides universal subscription, delivery, and management of events, enabling developers to declaratively manage complex event-driven workloads.

Tight feedback loops (https://www.pluralsight.com/tech-blog/tightening-feedback-loops/) drive our processes. We value test-driven development (https://martinfowler.com/bliki/TestDrivenDevelopment.html) , pair programming (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pair_programming) , retrospectives (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retrospective#Software_development) , continuous integration (https://martinfowler.com/articles/continuousIntegration.html) , and working at a sustainable pace (http://www.sustainablepace.net/what-is-sustainable-pace) . We nurture psychological safety (https://www.impraise.com/blog/what-is-psychological-safety-and-why-is-it-the-key-to-great-teamwork) within teams and empower them to drive the changes necessary to obtain successful outcomes. We build software and solve problems collaboratively. Teammates are always accessible to lend a helping hand both remotely and in person.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about helping application developers be more productive and open source software development.

The Opportunity

In this role, you will

  • Define frameworks and APIs for serverless applications that will apply across the Tanzu products (https://tanzu.vmware.com/tanzu) .

  • Collaborate with open source communities to ensure adoption in the wider Kubernetes ecosystem.

  • Contribute to open-source Kubernetes projects.

  • Become a local expert on Kubernetes primitives.

Interested ? Here is what we look for:

  • You are excited to build software that is used by other software developers and the operations teams that support them, enabling enterprises to focus on their core business.

  • You care about building the right thing by understanding the flow of ideas, reducing batch sizes, and quantifying value and urgency

  • You are a strong collaborator and actively foster safe and inclusive teams. You enjoy mentoring others as much as you like learning from them.

  • You’re a life-long learner. You like learning new programming languages and technologies and you’re flexible about which ones you use.

The following are attributes we see in successful candidates, but they are not “requirements.” You are strongly encouraged to apply even if you don’t tick all the boxes because we want to hear from you and learn about what you can bring to the role:

  • Ability to dive into large codebases and contribute as you learn

  • Ability to research problems (including making incremental progress when faced with technical ambiguity) and break them into discrete parts

  • Professional experience with our technologies and processes (Ruby, Go, YAML, Kubernetes, Linux systems, Agile, Test Driven Development, XP)

  • Professional experience with relevant domains, such as distributed systems, API design, and networking

  • Interested in working in diverse and highly collaborative environments

  • Contribution to thriving open source communities

  • Familiarity with common development tools/stacks, such as Unix, command-line interfaces, and CI/CD systems and practices
