Joyent Product Engineers build solutions and integrations based on Triton and Manta, from whole applications to client libraries that demonstrate ideal usage of Joyent products and advance the state of the art for application development and operations.
Triton, including Triton DataCenter, ContainerPilot, and SmartOS, is a complete data center automation solution that powers Joyent's public cloud and private clouds worldwide.

We expect that you have detailed knowledge of a favorite language, tool or system, but that you are also able to quickly pick up new ones as needed. And while implementation experience is essential, enthusiasm and interest can trump experience; we are willing to take a chance on someone who wants to step up.
