Networking System Test Engineer

Barefoot Networks is a team of visionaries, experienced technologists and engineers 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 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. At the core of this revolution are the technologies that Barefoot is building: languages, compilers, and tools co-designed with fully programmable hardware. We're just starting to scratch the surface of this novel and exciting area, and we're looking for passionate engineers who can join this amazing journey with us!
