Integral to the Nutanix software stack is the Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV). AHV is an enterprise-grade hypervisor tailor-made for Nutanix's software solution and has reliability, performance and scalability characteristics proven to be capable of meeting the demands of the toughest enterprise and private cloud workloads.
We are seeking to grow our Cambridge-based engineering team with talented software engineers who will help us develop AHV and shape the future of the software-defined datacenter.
About the team
The team is led by industry experts with 20+ years of experience, who are leading AHV development globally. We have a forward-thinking approach to our work that has retained many of the best elements of start-up mentality whilst also recognising the need for mature delivery and execution. We work with open-source technologies including Linux KVM, QEMU, Open vSwitch and Libvirt.
What will you bring
Meet the hiring manager!
Felipe Franciosi, Senior Director of Engineering, is a veteran at Nutanix and the industry. Felipe has been in IT for over 20 years spanning multiple roles and countries. He has been in Nutanix since 2015 and has a PhD from Imperial College London on virtualized storage performance.
After joining Nutanix, he created the AHV Host team, wrote several of the host software and components (including AHV Turbo), had over a dozen patents granted, presented at a number of conferences and events, idealized protocols such as vfio-user, and founded the Cambridge UK R&D office.
What the Team Says
“You can expect Start-up vibes, a very dynamic and fluid type of place.”
“I applied to work at Nutanix a year ago because I heard the work environment was great and I am still impressed by how supportive the team and people in general are. There is always someone willing to help, experienced people are approachable and help newer people to settle in and familiarize with the ecosystem.”
How we work
We have good cooperation across different time zones, and we also see a lot of value from in-person collaboration. People who live nearby tend to be in the office most of the time, and those who are a bit further out try to visit at least once a week. Overall we are flexible, everyone chooses what works best for them. We are trying to minimize the number of meetings and nurture the culture of writing and sharing documents, which helped us achieve a more flexible schedule and transparent knowledge sharing. We also have weekly Nutanix lunch days that are a great opportunity to connect with the team and other colleagues.
