Savvius Inc. offers a range of powerful software and appliance products that automate the collection of critical network data for security investigations and for network and application visibility and performance diagnostics.

Savvius has a position open for a Senior Software Engineer in our Walnut Creek, CA office. As a Senior Developer, you are already deeply skilled in software design and development and are interested in making a significant contribution to our success. Our ideal candidate will be able to contribute ‘end-to-end’ in our development process, from inception to shipping. Experience architecting software, familiarity with design patterns, ability and willingness to contribute to specification development, familiarity with testing methodologies, familiarity with scalability patterns, UI development using JavaScript frameworks, and a high level of fluency in C++ are all part of the Senior Engineer position.

It is not essential to have a deep background in networking or security, though that is certainly a plus. Rather than a long checklist of ‘must have X years with tool Y’, we are looking for a person who is really good at designing, implementing, and delivering quality software and is ready to ramp up quickly on new challenges. If you enjoy working within a small team on cutting edge technology and are interested in delivering quality networking and security solutions, Savvius is a great place to work!
