Software Engineer - Distributed Systems

Barefoot Networks is a team of visionaries, experienced technologists and engineers with a proven track record of success who have created a blueprint for designing and operating the world’s fastest and most programmable networks.  Our team is driven by deep engineering skills and a love of cutting-edge projects.  We are building the world’s fastest switches that are also fully programmable, ensuring the network can adapt to meet the emerging needs of applications and empower users to write solutions rapidly, and to innovate broadly.  We believe that when the network is fully programmable—that is, both the control plane and data plane are under the control of the end user— the networking industry will enjoy the same innovative explosion as we have seen in software.

Programmable data planes will enable a whole new ecosystem of advanced networking applications, and the field of possibility is mind-bogglingly wide. It ranges from advanced network monitoring, analysis, and diagnostics, to building a large-scale data analysis platform, to embedding some middle-box functions in switches/routers, and to jointly designing a network and the apps running on the network. We're just starting to scratch the surface of novel and exciting networking applications, and we're looking for passionate engineers who can join this amazing journey with us.
