Meet the hiring manager!

Kalpesh Bafna, Technical Director, is the global head of this team. He is a hands-on tech manager with a solid track record of leading winning teams who successfully delivered complex software features. 

Kalpesh started with Nutanix 8 years back, as a founding engineer for Nutanix Files product, and is  looking for people who share the same passion for software development, as well as leading teams to solve complex distributed systems problems.

What the Team Says 

“People here have really diverse knowledge, especially in the field of distributed systems. They are very productive, but also very fun to work with. Each day has new interesting challenges, and everyone is very open to new ideas. Sometimes maybe too open, so be careful when you say “I would like to change this thing from scratch”. :) 

Don’t be surprised when action is taken instantly after your proposals.”

How we work

All team members have the liberty to choose their work location. Some prefer remote work, while others like to work from the office, and from time to time the whole group meets in person. Everyone has a lot of autonomy in their everyday work, but also we strive to stay connected and provide help to each other whenever needed.  We also have weekly Nutanix lunch days that are a great opportunity to connect in person with the team and other colleagues.
