Arista Networks pioneered software-driven, cognitive cloud networking for large-scale datacenter and campus environments. Arista's award-winning platforms, ranging in Ethernet speeds from 10 to 400 gigabits per second, redefine scalability, agility and resilience. Arista has shipped more than 20 million cloud networking ports worldwide with CloudVision and EOS, an advanced network operating system. Committed to open standards, Arista is a founding member of the 25/50G consortium. Arista Networks products are available worldwide directly and through partners.
Networks and Distributed Systems are critical to our lives and they are becoming more and more sophisticated. This means that visibility - being able to collect, correlate and visualize information throughout the stack from the physical layer to the application - becomes a critical component. The DANZ Monitoring Fabric (DMF) is Arista's unique, scale-out monitoring and visibility solution, helping our customers to robustly plan, operate and troubleshoot their networks.
Arista Networks is looking for world-class software engineers to join our DMF software development team. As a core member of the DMF team, you will be part of a growing, fast paced, high caliber team building features to run large scale data center and campus monitoring networks.
The DMF team is responsible for all aspects of the development and delivery of fabric controller software designed to orchestrate various Arista and Open Networking switches, as well as managed, high-performance compute nodes that are a part of the fabric. You will work with your fellow engineers to understand functional and technical requirements for upcoming projects. You will help write functional specifications, design specifications, test plans, and the code to bring all of these to life. You will also work with customers to triage and address problems in their networks and DMF deployments. Internally, you will develop automated tests for your software, monitor the execution of those tests, and triage and fix problems found by your tests. At Arista, you will own your projects from definition to deployment, and you will be responsible for the quality of everything you deliver.
