• Design experiments to uncover problems in common and uncommon use cases and configurations.

• Analyze performance data from hardware counters, profiling tools, custom experiments, microbenchmarks, and application benchmarks.

• Troubleshoot and debug performance problems that involve multiple components and the entire stack (hardware, microcode, device drivers, hypervisor, guest OS, networking, storage, applications, etc.).

• Effectively present data, conclusions, and recommendations. Be able to excite and persuade both technical and non-technical audiences.

• Optionally author patents, papers, presentations, blogs, and present at academic or industry conferences.

• 4+ years of relevant hands-on software development or performance analysis experience.

• Proven ability to root-cause poorly performing software.

• Low-level software (kernel, driver) development and debugging experience.

• Proficient in C or C+ • Proficient in Python or shell scripting

• Ability to exercise good judgement and operate independently.

• Excellent communication, collaboration, and coordination skills.

• Understanding of modern Intel and AMD x86-based CPU architectures and/or large multi-socket systems

• Understanding of virtualization technology and experience with virtualization environments (vSphere, Xen, Hyper-V, KVM, etc).

• Ability to learn new technologies and product areas quickly.

This role is flexible and can be done from home, in a VMware office, or in a combination of the two anywhere in the United States. This role is based in the US and unfortunately, we are unable to offer relocation assistance on this occasion.

Due to the Biden Administration issuing an Executive Order (EO) that effectively mandates COVID-19 vaccination for all U.S. based employees of federal contractors and subcontractors, all U.S. based VMware employees will be required to have their final vaccination dose (e.g., second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or single dose of J&J) by January 4, 2022. Specifically, this means that all U.S. based VMware employees will need to be fully vaccinated by January 18th, 2022, or by their first date of employment if after that date, subject to legally required accommodations.
