Senior QA Engineer- Cloud/Storage

Location: Sunnyvale or San Francisco, CA

Riverbed is about changing the rules. Forget about how things work today – join us as we solve the problems of the future. Do you thrive on change? Do you like the constant challenge of the new? Do you value simplicity? Our intelligent insights and hard work makes things easy for our customers so we can enable them to serve their customers. Can you help us deliver technology without disruptions – technology that just works?

The Storage Delivery Group
The objective of this business is to enable customers to do what they really want – which is to increasingly consolidate and virtualize their worldwide storage in their own private data center/cloud or public data center/cloud. This is achieved by doing what was previously thought impossible: allow storage to be decoupled from its server over thousands of miles of distance—and actually work as if the storage were local to the server. End users in edge locations get uncompromised performance, while IT management is able to manage, backup, provision, patch, expand, and protect branch data on enterprise storage within the four walls of the data center. By doing this, they reduce data center and branch management costs while delivering security and control over their data. When you join the Storage Delivery Group, you’ll have a hand in creating the products and solutions that are critical to Global 1000 companies. You’ll work with engineers, led by our leading scientists, to innovate solutions for our Granite products and our Whitewater products line. If this sounds like the team you want to play for, read on.
