This team has lots of good ideas for prototypes, product & process improvements they want to see battle-tested. As WDC sees the value and the quality of engineering education, they’d like to get a couple of passionate students on board who want to learn about distributed storage software, how contemporary multi-person development is done and how working in our team feels like. See this student job as a unique opportunity for you to feel the vibe in a local and global company. If you like it and we like you…. We might have a great journey ahead of us.

** Performance Characterization (Golang) of Activescale datapath components **
In our ActiveScale storage product data travels through multiple components with different responsibilities prior to ending up on disk (HDD or SSD). By characterizing the performance of individual components, we can infer which one of them is a bottleneck in the entire stack. In this project, you will:
write one or more backends for our in-house developed benchmark tool to communicate with the components
benchmark the component(s) on our testing infrastructure and analyze the results.

** Tools/Languages **

Go, Linux
