We build the brain” of VMware Edge Network Intelligence (ENI) platform and all that is needed to power AI/ML analytics in VMware SASE offerings. You will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects that push the innovation boundary in Networking, learn from and contribute to a team that has many years of experience building scalable ML systems. We have an inclusive and flexible culture that will allow you to grow in your career while maintaining work-life balance that suits your needs.

Success in the Role: What are the performance outcomes over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?

In this role, you will leverage your analytical skills to build end-to-end data analysis pipelines that include data ingestion, transformation, analysis and data output to relevant databases.

  • You will have the opportunity to work with a variety of technologies and languages that include Apache Spark, Cassandra, Elastic Search, Redis, Mongo DB, Akka, Scala, Python, Java.

  • Within 30 days of employment, you will become competent with ENIs architecture, infrastructure, data pipelines, code base and various internal processes.

On a regular basis you will be:

1) Adding new features to the ENI product offering by designing and implementing data pipelines in Apache Spark. This will involve:

  • Understanding the feature requirements in terms of what datatouse, how the data will be ingested into the ENI engine, what data transformations will be needed, what analysis algorithms will be used, how to design code that allows horizontal scalability of the pipeline on production clusters, and finally how the output should be written to the DBs so that it can be consumed by the UI.

  • While not a requirement to apply for the job, we expect you to be able to learn and then write production level code in Scala programming language on a regular basis.

2) Optimizing data pipelines and any scalability bottlenecks that arise in production systems. This will include:

  • Identifying the bottleneck in terms of whether it is associated with non-scalable compute or I/O operation.

  • Devising intelligent solutions to the problem by leveraging various distributed computing concepts such as breaking tasks into smaller pieces, reducing skew in task compute times, minimizing I/O overheads, etc.

3) Interacting with other teams to drive analytics features into production and ensuring that the data output is properly reflected on the UI as well as consumed by other systems.

What is the leadership like for this role? What is the structure and culture of the team like?
