Work with me! Our Dell team is hiring architects, engineers & open source gurus

If you’ve been watching my team’s progress at Dell on Crowbar, OpenStack and Hadoop and want a front row seat in these exciting open source projects then the ball is in our your court!   We are poised to take all three of these projects into new territories that I cannot reveal here, but, take my word for it, there has never been a better time to join our team.

Let me repeat: my team has a lot of open engineering and marketing positions.

Not only are we doing some really kick ass projects, we are also helping redefine how Dell delivers software.  Dell is investing significantly in building our software capabilities and focus.

Basically, we are looking for engineers with a passion for scale applications, devops and open source.   Experience in Hadoop and/or OpenStack will move you to the top of the pile.   These positions say Hadoop, but we’re also looking for OpenStack, DevOps and Chef.  We think like a start-up.

Ideally in Austin, Boston or the Bay.  We’ll also be happy to hear from you if you’ve got l33t chOps but are not as senior as these positions require.
If you are interested, the BEST NEXT  STEP IS TO APPLY ONLINE.
If you don’t want to click the links, I’m attaching the descriptions of the engineering positions after the split.
