Infrastructure QA Engineer


In Joyent, we pride ourselves in sticking with the technologies we believe in and adhering to high standards for engineering. As we grow the footprint of our public and private clouds, we are looking for like-minded individuals to help us take our products to the next level.

  • Come up with exit criteria for hardware and network infrastructure verifications, and define test plans and test cases to verify them
  • Proactive review and testing of new firmware versions
  • Troubleshoot and triage infrastructure issues; understand the root causes and provide feedback to the internal teams for future improvement


You'll be a natural fit if you are:

  • Passionate about building the best-in-class product in the cloud computing market
  • Willing to step up and take on responsibilities when the situation calls for it
  • Not afraid to disagree with others when the product quality does not meet your standards

Additionally, you should have most (or all!) of the following:

  • 7+ years hardware, cloud platform or IT infrastructure QA experience
  • Experience with designing, deploying, and supporting data center deployment and building large-scale infrastructure
