If you are passionate about working on technologies and design approaches that are disruptive to incumbent Enterprise players, like to use Open Source, tooling and automation and agile concepts, and are interested in opportunities to work at massive scale, we may have just the job for you. We're looking for highly motivated and hardworking OpenStack engineers for our Cloud Infrastructure Engineering (CIE) team.
Why the team needs you
