NetApp's Vancouver Technology Center is pioneering the development of the next generation of Scale-Out file systems to handle the exponential growth of data and the data intensive demands of more modern applications such as machine learning or artificial intelligence.

Your passion to lead engineering teams through design, implementation, and support will help solve our customer’s big data challenges. You are opinionated yet flexible, and know when to adopt new technologies.


We are true believers of Agile development, Continuous Integration Testing, and have been on a journey of improvement for many years. We rely on high levels of communication across the team and company, rather than bureaucratic processes to produce world-class results.
