Isilon is having an Engineering Open House

This was sent out internally earlier today but I can’t find an external copy. Let me fix that.

What: EMC Isilon Engineering Team Open House
When: Wed, June 20 4pm-7pm
Where: EMC Isilon Headquarters (in Pioneer Square, Seattle): 6th floor, 505 1st Avenue S, Seattle, WA 98104
RSVP: [Email me –] if you will attend, so that we can make sure to order enough food and drink.

What (in detail):
Join us for the upcoming Isilon Engineering Team Open House. There’s free food and drink and you will get to meet the team that builds OneFS. OneFS is the software behind the Isilon network attached storage system, the world’s best scale-out NAS for capacity and access performance.

You will get a chance to see what it is like to work in Isilon by meeting people with different kinds of jobs in engineering. We have people working in development, test, and program management roles on a variety of things that all have to come together to build OneFS — kernel, device drivers, distributed filesystems, engines for protocols like SMB, NFS and iSCSI, authentication and authorization systems, user interfaces — to name just a few.

We will have a few short presentations by members of our team to get you into the Isilon frame of mind:

  1. Isilon – a fast-paced technical architecture intro
  2. The technology and product opportunity for Isilon going forward
  3. NFS – analyzing and improving performance

We’re likely to show some videos as well that showcase our product.

So, come on over, grab some food and drink, and find out if you would like to join our growing team to do cool work. We are looking to hire many talented people in development, test, and program management.

How to get here (and parking):
Directions to our office are at The event is on the 6th floor. We can validate parking under our building (entrance on Railroad Ave S,; there are many other transit and parking options available near our office too. If you get lost, please call 206-617-9476.

The original had the email address of our lovely and talented engineering administrative assistant in it, which I’m not about to post for spambots to harvest. So just contact me and I’ll forward it onto her.

Folks should come out and make an evening of it. There’s all kinds of cool things down in Pioneer Square afterwards. It’s a good chance to get to know some of the team, see what cool things we’re doing, tour our new building, see if we stock your favorite (free!) beverage in our kitchens, and let us talk you into coming to work for us.
