Staff or Sr MTS Quality Engineering – VMware Cloud Foundation

VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF), a VMware offering in exponential growth mode, is a hybrid cloud infrastructure platform to run modern workloads, from mission-critical workflows to containerized apps, in the private cloud, public cloud, and at the edge. VCF integrates compute, storage, networking, security, and cloud management services, including support for modern composable hardware, to create a consistent, and dynamically configurable, infrastructure.

We have ambitious goals to expand VCF infrastructure so it is simple and extensible to deploy, run and manage these modern workloads, which are distributed, hybrid, multi-cloud and elastic, much like cloud services.  Additionally, these full stack infrastructure clusters, hardware(s) plus software(s), should be converted into programmable, intelligent, intent-driven software endpoints that are deployed, secured, and easily managed at scale, like a software CI/CD pipeline.  The infrastructure is intent-driven, whereby an application can provide its runtime characteristics and requirements of the infrastructure and expect the entire stack to configure itself intelligently.  The infrastructure also reconfigures or maintains itself on an ongoing basis, to support these hybrid applications’ dynamic, elastic needs. 

VMware Cloud Foundation team is looking for software quality developers in System Test who are passionate about changing the future of Hybrid Cloud and to promote VMware’s vision of Any App, Any Device, Any Cloud.

You’ll do your best work and have the most fun in a team where you feel you belong and when you’re invested in the success of the company and the team as a whole. We are looking for individuals who are enthusiastic, passionate and have excellent potential rather than a specific skill set. During the course of your conversations across interviews, please make sure to display that side of you!"
