The Opportunity:

You would join as a member of our world class follow-the-sun SRE team, a hand-picked group of engineers from leading virtualisation, compute, and networking companies who support, troubleshoot and improve our hybrid and private cloud platform day-to-day.

When issues are escalated to this team, they have often passed through Level 1-3 of our customers’ and/or partners’ troubleshooting process. To solve them, you’ll need to leverage existing and build new, deep knowledge of virtualisation, Linux, networking and storage.

Nutanix’s flat organisational structure means that every engineer we hire (once trained) is responsible for understanding and troubleshooting issues from Level 1-3, and P1 - P4 across our entire stack.
Building this breadth and depth of knowledge quickly will be rewarding but very challenging.
