Requisition ID:  39371


Are you data-driven?  We at NetApp believe in the transformative power of data – to expand customer touchpoints, to foster greater innovation, and to optimize operations.  We are designed for simplicity, optimized to protect, created to embrace future opportunity, and open to enrich choice.  We are the data authority for hybrid cloud, and we are helping our customers realize the full potential of their data.


We’ve built a Data Fabric for a data-driven world – to simplify and integrate data management across the resources that are best for the business.  With the Data Fabric, our customers can harness the power of cloud data services, build cloud infrastructures, and modernize storage through data management.


By building cloud infrastructures, customers get the scale and quality of service that modern applications require.  Only NetApp can help organizations focus on the business at hand when they develop a zero-touch infrastructure that manages apps, data and services as one integrated resource supporting both public and private clouds.

Job Summary

NetApp is growing the StorageGRID team and we have tremendous opportunity for you to play a critical role in designing strategic cloud features and enhancing our industry leading hybrid cloud objective storage. Your incredible OO design and C++ skills will create opportunities to contribute clean code. You should be comfortable solving our customer’s big data challenges by writing new code as you are improving developer productivity by refactoring. You are opinionated while flexible and know when to adopt new technologies.

We are true believers of Agile development and have been on the journey for many years. Since you maintain supreme levels of communications with your peers, we won’t inundate you with process and documentation.

Outside of building software, NetApp strives to keep employees healthy and engaged. We have an excellent on-site fitness center, regular beer bashes and a culture which promotes autonomy and collaboration. Also, you have the opportunity to give back to your community with 40 hours of company-paid volunteer time off which you can use for your favorite non-profit.

If you want to ship an awesome product, but above all, want to be an integral part of the team that makes this happens, please contact us.

Throughout the world, leading organizations count on NetApp’s solutions to manage and store their data.

Come join our team and make difference.
