If you are looking for technical experience and career growth in the fast paced high tech industry, want to work on high visibility projects, wish to grow a peer network across multiple Dell-EMC businesses, want to learn what it takes to bring a product to market, and be part of ensuring that it meets customer’s expectations of quality and reliability - then this job is for you.
Your primary purpose will be to find and fix hardware problems affecting Dell-EMC customers. You will interface with Customer Service and Data Analytics groups to identify new issues impacting the reliability or availability (up-time) for many products.

You will program manage the efforts to understand the root-cause behind those problems and drive appropriate corrective actions through various analytical and technical methods. The work will encompass multiple areas of engineering including data analytics, electronic design, mechanical design, software design, test-process development, or other related fields. The work will not include directly interacting with customer or addressing live customer problems. You will; however, typically interact with many parts of the business: Hardware Design Engineering, Software Development, Software Quality, Manufacturing, Supply Base Engineering. You will gain system-level expertise by working these critical problems diving deep into how the systems operate, understanding the various customers use-cases, and how Dell-EMC services them in in the field.
