The FlashBlade team at Pure is seeking an Automation engineer for System Integration Testing.  The mission:  to build and maintain an evolving suite of automated tests that qualify “Scale, Stress, and Load” before System Testing.  You will be working with Developers, System Test engineers, and Product Managers to bring optimal test coverage to this area.

With the FlashBlade product, we are building a scale-out all-flash file and object store, designed for the modern world. To really understand how our customers work with data, we are deeply immersed in AI, modern backup, log analytics with Splunk and Elastic, data pipeline with Kafka, cluster computing with Spark, and many more use cases.

  • Highly skilled at using Infrastructure as Code tools (such as: Terraform, Ansible, Chef, Puppet, etc) and integrating them into automation suites in a VMware infrastructure.  Have used such tools to deploy an end to end test ecosystem.
  • Strong experience in Kubernetes and Containers with ability to leverage and assess such environments to reduce overall footprint of infrastructure needs compared to strictly using VMs, or thick test clients.  Have an efficiency mindset.

  • Stellar communication and collaboration skills
  • Ability to work independently and with cross-functional teams to gather data to help with future automation project roadmaps.
