Job Opp @ Nexenta: Director of Sustaining/Certifications

We're looking for a Director of Engineering, to own sustaining (aka bug fixing) and hardware platform certifications (where partners provide a hardware platform and ask us to certify it for use with NexentaStor.)

The job qualifications:

  1. Must be local to the SF bay area (because the hardware lab is here)
  2. Must have strong communication skills
  3. Must be able to deal with stressful situations, and able to "manage" strong personalities
  4. Must have Solaris/OpenSolaris expertise... hands-on kernel work (crash dump analysis, coding, etc.)
  5. Desire experience with Storage protocols and products
  6. Desire expertise with x86 hardware
  7. Desire perl and/or python skills

To be clear, this will start out as a hands-on position, with a fast-paced startup environment. But the growth opportunities here are enormous. If you think you're up to this, please let me know.

New desktop image

Here's a sample of the new logo as a desktop image. I've not made this available publicly yet (mostly because I don't know how to capture this in a form that will include the gradient and post it where people can find it.) If someone with some gnome expertise on how to share this for others contacts me, I can work to make it available.
