Job Description

Software Engineer in the FleX Core team

The FleX Core team leads the FleX project, which is transforming Nutanix into a true software company by decoupling our software from the underlying hardware. We accomplish this by focusing in three major areas:

  • Hardware enablement and qualification: Establish a unified, streamlined set of tools and processes for enabling, integrating, and qualifying all hardware with Nutanix’s software.
  • Hardware abstraction layer (HAL): Decouple Nutanix’s software from the underlying hardware by developing a complete hardware abstraction layer.
  • External access: Allow external users to bring up and qualify new hardware components and platforms entirely on their own using the FleX tools and the HAL.
