**Principal SDE – Isilon Vertical Campaign Team**
Come join the Isilon Vertical Campaign Team! We are a newly formed team, with a mission to eradicate any development gaps in some of Isilon’s larger cross-organization projects. We are looking for a developer to define and implement features needed to fill some of those gaps. Example current and future projects include building a new statistics gather and analysis infrastructure to unify and expand conflicting implementations across the product; building an infrastructural toolbox to help identify and solve large-node-count cluster scalability weaknesses; creating an onboard hypervisor environment with faster access to data than our network ports allow. To be successful, you’ll have great programming skills, the ability to go deep into technical architecture and implementations, and a love of variety. You’ll have the inquisitiveness and tenacity necessary to turn amorphous product challenges into concrete software solutions. And of course you’ll need to have fun doing it!
