Job Summary

Picture yourself working with the world’s best employees. Join the StorageGRID team at NetApp and become a part of Glassdoor’s 2019 Best Places to Work.


NetApp's Vancouver Technology Center is pioneering the development of StorageGRID object storage, cloud compatible software handling the exponential growth in big data. This is your chance to work alongside a group of talented developers, impart your vision, and rapidly launch the latest cloud storage software. If you have mastered your current technology, language, or development environments, we know you will fit in with our team.


So, picture yourself working with the world’s best employees. Join the StorageGRID team at NetApp and become a part of one of the top 30 Best Multinational Workplaces in the world as ranked by the Great Place to Work Institute. 


As a Software Engineer in Test you will work as part of the Quality team responsible for delivering an enterprise class NetApp software product. Through the application of systematic test tools and processes you will help deliver reliable, innovative storage and data management products. You will be part of a team that develops, modifies, and executes automated software test plans; analyzes and writes test standards and procedures; maintains documentation of results; and works closely with development engineers in feature development and resolution of problems. 


Your incredible ability to analyze problems and apply to proper test tools and methods will create opportunities to contribute clean code. Naturally, you are as comfortable using new tools and solving new problems as you are improving productivity by refactoring and improving existing tools and workflows. 


We are true believers of Agile development and have been on the journey for many years. Continuous integration, TDD, and pair programming occur everywhere. 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 hold weekly yoga sessions just to balance out the donuts. Relax during your break in our gaming lounge with craft beer on tap or join one of our foosball competitions. We celebrate everything from Diwali and Lunar New Year to pie day and Star Wars Day so be prepared for plenty of food and beverages. Our employee clubs will let you hone your coffee making and tasting skills. Give back to your community with 40 hours of company-paid volunteering events like the food bank and blood drives.


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 to manage and store their data. From the edge of the universe with CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, to the edge of human endurance in Formula One auto racing, we help our customers do things they couldn’t before—at speeds you never thought possible.
