    About this Position

    Riverbed is looking for a full stack software engineer to join the SteelScript team in the Office of the CTO based in the Cambridge, MA office.


    The SteelScript team owns a suite of open source Python modules that enable fully programmable access to Riverbed hardware and software.  You will have the opportunity to work at multiple levels, from low-level REST APIs in Python to single page applications in JavaScript, from data analysis modules to new visualizations.


    These open source projects demand strong skills in API development, modularization, clean code, testing and documentation. You will be faced with the challenges of creating complex new features with a simple and usable interface that the non-coder can use and the advanced developer can extend.


    Communication skills are key, as the SteelScript team interfaces with a variety of people both inside and outside the company.  We work closely with product-specific engineering teams to build out SDK support for their APIs.  We provide support to Riverbed customers as well as our own professional services teams.


    In a senior role, you will be expected to be highly productive with little oversight and show strong initiative and creativity.  You like to jump in and help, leading by example.  You enjoy writing up your work so others can take off where you left off.


    You must be good at:

    • Python
    • Django or similar web framework
    • Linux
    • Communication (both verbal and written, internal and customer-facing)
    • Enthusiasm for learning new things


    And even better if you have:

    • Experience with JavaScript
    • Experience with data analysis and visualization
    • Experience with databases and big data, especially elasticsearch
    • Networking background - at least an understanding of basic network concepts
    • Customer support experience
    • A willingness to travel
