Senior Member of the Technical Staff – Tanzu Community Edition - Opportunity for Working Remotely

VMware - San Francisco, CA

The Elevator Pitch: Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

Tanzu Community Edition is VMware’s fully-realized Kubernetes platform built entirely of open source components driven by community engagement. With it, community members can build and manage their Kubernetes infrastructure, packages, and cloud workloads. You will be integrated into the community team and will help develop new features, fix bugs, engage with the open source community, write & present talks at conferences, develop documentation, and generally, become a champion of our open source user-base.

This is a unique opportunity to become engrossed in the upstream Kubernetes community and yet still have a high impact on the greater VMware business. Tanzu Community Edition integrates heavily with a number of other VMware products and libraries including Tanzu Application Platform and Tanzu Kubernetes for Operators. This puts it at the cornerstone of Kubernetes open source and VMware product. You will solve challenging problems around identifying real world customer concerns, building tangible solutions, and growing an early open source community.


What is the primary need, technical challenge, and/or problem you will be responsible for?

In this role, you will help bring awareness of the technical approach to VMware’s opinionated path through the CNCF landscape. Building off a strong understanding of Kubernetes, you will be responsible for executing towards our roadmap, building new tools, developing pathways for community users into Tanzu Community Edition, and integrating into community projects, like Cluster API.


Success in the Role: What are the performance goals over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?

Success in this role means you are integrated with the engineering team designing, reviewing, and delivering new community-driven features. You are aligned with the community roadmap and building tooling, automation, and documentation to meet milestone deliverables. Your work is driving downloads of Tanzu Community Edition, and you are actively participating and building community awareness of the open source project. The community feedback for features is incorporated into the roadmap, and you are collaborating with the technical lead, community, and field teams to build better software. Influence is being built through blogs, videos, and contributions to open source projects that impact our downstream efforts.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing on a regular basis?

  • Research and develop cutting edge cloud native software.

  • Proficiency in Go with an open mind towards other languages, frameworks, and tools.

  • Participate in open source communities that provide perspective for our downstream approaches. For example, Special Interest Group (SIG) Cluster Lifecycle and end user experience SIGs, such as SIG-Apps.

  • Provide feedback to peers through code and design reviews.

  • Believe in agile software development methodologies.

  • Write tools, automation, and documentation aligned with our roadmap.

  • Provide feedback based on open source learnings throughout product management and engineering to improve Tanzu solutions’ user experience, and highlight new areas of need.

  • Participate in customer briefings on technologies in the cloud native space providing insight and experience from Kubernetes users and VMware customers.

  • Maintain knowledge of platforms, architectures and the CNCF landscape with a deep understanding of Kubernetes and Cluster API.

What is leadership like for this role? What is the structure and culture of the team like?

The hiring manager for this role is Amanda Katona, Director of Engineering, Cloud Native Community Engagement for Tanzu Community Edition. Amanda joined VMware in 2018 after leading open source marketing for The {code} Team representing open source efforts at Dell Technologies and Dell EMC. Amanda is passionate about building diverse and inclusive communities. If she’s not working, she’s traveling the world looking for the perfect path less traveled with her daughter.

The Community Engagement team is made up of individuals with diverse backgrounds who are excited about enabling open source project teams to be successful and influential in their respective communities. This is an expanding, highly collaborative team that strives to bring authenticity and compassion to our work.
