Sr. Application developer - Job Description:

Are you interested in building large-scale distributed infrastructure for the cloud?

Our team builds distributed services that handle planning, provisioning, life cycle management and security of our network infrastructure. We are reimagining the traditional planning, provisioning and life cycle management of our network infrastructure to provide strong guarantees of security and availability with our new large scale distributed services.
