You know that how a cloud is built can differ from company to company, and throughout your experience, you have discovered modern tools and services to build, maintain and scale clouds quickly. You have the ability to see and communicate the outcome of technical discussions in the real world, and you care to maintain shipped products with hot fixes and maintenance releases. Ultimately, you thrive being part of a small, very talented and motivated engineering team developing the next generation technologies that will change how the world uses WiFi.
