Software Engineer (Onload) [ref: SwOnloadEng]
We are looking for very high calibre software engineers to work on the design and implementation of Solarflare's OpenOnload application middleware. OpenOnload is a kernel bypass network solution providing an accelerated TCP/IP network stack which is dynamically linked into an application's address space and granted direct access to accelerated network hardware.
This role involves working on an ultra high performance TCP/IP implementation, a sockets layer which is semantically identical to Linux and a number of Linux kernel modules which integrate closely with the Linux network stack.
To be successful you will have the ability to quickly understand a complex hardware and software architecture. You will have worked extensively at the hardware / software interface involving networking in some capacity, programming in C ideally on Linux kernel components.
The role involves close working and consultancy to our tier1 financial (Wall Street) customer base. This is an ideal opportunity if you want more customer contact than a typical development role provides.
We are looking for engineers with a very strong academic background in a numerical subject (e.g. maths, physics, computer science) or of similar calibre.
