3. QA Software Engineer-Network Management Tools

Want to break systems that capture, analyze, and diagnose network packets at multi-gigabit rates? Excited to help establish a brand new QA team with state of the art tools at your disposal? Interested in working side by side with the team that built Wireshark? Ready to work on something big?

Become a member of the Cascade Shark Appliance / Cascade Pilot Quality Assurance team.

You’ll be working on serious software that over 75 of the 100 biggest global companies put in the core of their networks. You’ll be surrounded by experts in the field, but be empowered to forge your own path. You’ll have the right tools – from a hands-off, fully-automated lab with a few thousand machines at your disposal, to support libraries and systems that let you concentrate on development, not the trivial stuff. You can run Mac OS, Windows, or Linux with double monitors, your favorite ergo keyboard, or most anything else — we don't care. And most importantly, you’ll have new challenges at every turn.

In a nutshell, we’re a focused and nimble small team without a lot of "Big Company" baggage.

You will:

• Join a growing QA team to test a screaming-fast distributed packet capture and analysis system.
• Work with and extend automated test frameworks and harnesses written in Python, Perl, and C#.
• Integrate new products into the various automated frameworks used by the QA team.
• Create, execute, and maintain test plans for various features of the products.

You should:
• Solid technical background with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in CS/CE/EE or a related field
• Relevant QA experience in an established engineering organization.
• Provable design and programming skills in scripting languages like Perl, Python, or TCL
• An understanding of QA methodologies and an ability to design test cases to provide full coverage of new and legacy features.
• Experience building or extending automated test frameworks and harnesses.

You should:
• Driven and motivated to accomplish your goals both independently and as part of the team
• Excellent at verbal communication and written documentation
• Able to approach complex problem-solving and troubleshooting tasks with creativity
• Quick to learn new technologies and methodologies
• Willing and highly capable of providing manual test coverage for areas of the product that are not good candidates for automation.

Bonus points:
• Experience automating Web Based User Interfaces and/or .NET Windows applications
• Previously used open source or home grown tools to emulate real network based applications
• Experience with IP traffic generators (Layers 3 through 7) such as Ixia IxLoad or SmartBits Avalanche
• An ability to successfully analyze and debug network issues with Wireshark or other packet analysis tools
• Working knowledge of major IP infrastructure products such as firewalls, routers and switches

4. User Experience Designer

Riverbed Technology seeks a user experience designer for our web UI team

Riverbed makes a set of rack-mounted router-like devices which improve network performance. These devices have numerous configurations, and they retain complex data about their performance and the network traffic passing through them. To make these configurations and reports available to the network administrators who control our appliances, the devices have their own built-in web servers which serve up a complex application for those controls and data which users can access using a browser front end.

The team building that application consists of several web application developers building the various web pages, working with a UX designer who specifies the interaction design for new controls and functions (and as well as revisions to existing ones). Riverbed is looking to grow the UX design team.

You Should:
• Interaction design skills
• Solving interface problems for complex controls
• Analyzing users' workflow
• Defining information visualization for complex data
• Fundamental technical skills
• Able to dialogue effectively with front- and back-end developers
• Able to understand problems in a complex technical domain (networking)
• Able to work on application design with web interface limitations
• Design communication skills
• Drawing design solutions ranging from deliberately vague wireframes to pixel-plausible mock-ups
• Writing behavior specifications at varying levels of detail, ranging from rough to exhaustive
• Explaining and justifying design decisions to a range of organizational stakeholders

You May:
• Conducting ethnographic-style user research, interviewing users to understand their skills, needs, and goals
• Refining and communicating user needs in terms of user personas and functional requirements
• Identifying opportunities for usability testing, and conducting tests
• Creating finished image assets for use as icons and other visual interface elements
• Coherent visual design for software interfaces
• Experience with software development processes
• Web implementation skills (HTML/CSS/Ajax)
• Software skills in Adobe Fireworks

5. Software Engineer – Software Engineer – Web User Interface – San Francisco

Riverbed delivers its technology on custom/semi-custom network appliances. We tend to use industry standard technologies and rely on reputable suppliers for ODM/JDM partnerships.

Experience and Requirements:
• Bachelors degree in Computer Science or Engineering Degree
• Min 2 years exp in the UI design and Software Engineering
• Strong technical background and a passion for user experience. We want you to be a key player in the UI design so you must enjoy sketching many iterations of wire-frames and workflows.
• Our code is written in Python and JavaScript so familiarity with those languages is beneficial (but not strictly required). Preference will be given to candidates who have a strong portfolio of interaction design work.

Riverbed allows enterprises to successfully and intelligently implement strategic initiatives such as virtualization, consolidation, cloud computing, and disaster recovery without fear of compromising performance.
