Working in the .NET Experience program will provide you with an opportunity to create a state of the art experience for .NET developers utilizing our Tanzu product portfolio. You will be working with a dedicated team of professionals with a goal to provide a simplified approach to building microservices and data-driven applications on cloud platforms. If you are looking to make an impact building cloud-native applications and tools, this position will give you the opportunity to work directly on the Steeltoe (https://steeltoe.io) open source project and with a variety of teams across VMware with similar goals. You will develop innovative .NET solutions and integrations throughout our VMware Tanzu portfolio using technologies like Kubernetes, Knative, cloud-native buildpacks, functions, and more.

We are looking for a software engineer that enjoys working with new technologies and understands the .NET ecosystem. In addition to having a significant background in .NET, we are looking for an individual who can bring ideas and develop integration paths to many of our Tanzu products.

Within your first 6 months:

  • Within 30 days of employment, you will build a rapport with the Steeltoe team members, an understanding of the project capabilities, and be able to actively contribute to one or more areas on the project

  • Within 90 days, you will understand the team’s development, testing, review, and documentation processes

  • Within 180 days, you will have a deeper understanding of our cloud-native approach for .NET developers on cloud platforms using Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry

After 6 months+:

  • You will be contributing quality code that has been tested and verified

  • You will be challenged with making significant contributions to a feature or enhancement and provide support to our .NET open source community along with our internal and external customers

  • You will be able to document, discuss, and demonstrate the benefits of Steeltoe components to our users (internally and externally)

  • You will be responsible for researching, designing, and delivering technical solutions based on product requirements

Your regular work activities will vary depending on priorities, but you can expect some of the following:

  • Using your C#/.NET skills to develop and maintain components of Steeltoe that provide our users a better experience when developing microservices and/or data-driven applications

  • Building solutions using .NET IDEs like Visual Studio, VSCode, or Rider.

  • Understanding services and patterns that will be used by our users and how we can integrate them into Steeltoe

  • Diagnosing issues and providing solutions as needed

  • Using other technologies (e.g. Java/Spring, Python, Go) as reference implementations

  • Communicating and collaborating with other VMware teams on integration points

  • Documenting features and solutions in order for our users to have a clear path to get started

  • Reaching out to the Steeltoe community via conferences, videos, and/or blogs

  • Communicating effectively with the team regarding any questions, roadblocks, issues, or concerns

This position reports to the engineering manager of the .NET Experience Program, an experienced engineer with a strong technical background in software development, a passion for building the community of users around open source projects like Steeltoe, while also supporting each team member in the growth of their career.

Our team is fully remote and mostly resides in the United States eastern time zone. The team consists of many different technical skills and backgrounds, but all of them center around their love for .NET. We all work closely with each other using tools like GitHub, Zoom, and Slack.

We are dedicated to addressing a shift in software development to Kubernetes based cloud platforms and focused on a vision to bring tooling and libraries that allow developers to build applications and not worry as much about the infrastructure. We are looking for independent thinkers, problem solvers, and engineers that are willing to express their ideas across the team.

We operate as a remote team with a significant percentage of the team working within eastern time zone. We are flexible for locations, but we prefer if there is availability during the eastern time zone for daily collaboration and team meetings.

You and your loved ones will be supported with a competitive and comprehensive benefits package. Below are some highlights, or you can view the complete benefits package by visiting www.benefits.vmware.com .

Due to the Biden Administration issuing an Executive Order (EO) that effectively mandates COVID-19 vaccination for all U.S. based employees of federal contractors and subcontractors, all U.S. based VMware employees will be required to have their final vaccination dose (e.g., second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or single dose of J&J) by January 4, 2022. Specifically, this means that all U.S. based VMware employees will need to be fully vaccinated by January 18th, 2022, or by their first date of employment if after that date, subject to legally required accommodations.
