Think you know Storage?
Time to Switch Your Thinking.
Led by founders with decades of deep storage and virtualization experience, Convergent.io’s world-class team is uniquely poised to tackle the challenge of rethinking how storage is delivered in tomorrow's datacenter.
Ramana has been a part of every significant, transformative industry trend since the 90s: He started his early career with VERITAS Software in building large-scale storage architectures, and then led the product team at Xensource in delivering the first open-source virtualization platform. With a passion for building world-class teams that can drive these disruptive transformations, Ramana co-founded Convergent.io to bring about the next era of the software-defined datacenter.read more…
After Citrix acquired XenSource, Ramana served as VP of Citrix’s Virtualization Management Division and led the product team in delivering the first bare metal hypervisor for client devices. These experiences convinced Ramana that at the core of a successful startup is an extremely talented technical team which thinks about solutions to problems in a very different way. He is excited to be leading Convergent.io in its mission to redefine storage for the next generation of datacenters.
Andrew Warfield is an established researcher in computer systems, specializing in storage, virtualization, and security. At Convergent.io, Andy leads the technology vision and directs the engineering team in building elegant and functional systems that enable customers to focus on the data and applications instead of the underlying infrastructure that drives them.read more…
As a PhD student at the University of Cambridge, he was one of the original authors of the Xen hypervisor, and has since done award-winning research in virtualization and high availability. At XenSource and Citrix Systems, he was the Technical Director for Storage & Emerging Technologies, where he worked in close relationships with with enterprise storage vendors to help integrate leading storage technologies with emerging approaches to virtualization.
Previously a Co-Founder of XenSource and principal author of the Xen hypervisor, Keir brings his passion and expertise for designing lightweight but powerful software to Convergent.io in his role as Chief Architect. He continues to be the lead maintainer of the Xen hypervisor, and leverages his deep background in virtualization to help drive the technical architecture for Convergent.io’s approach to the software-defined datacenter.read more…
As a world-leading virtualization expert and the lead maintainer of Xen, Keir has advised major chip vendors on how to best support virtualization in their architectures, and has frequently provided expert consulting on the application of virtualization in emerging datacenter products. Keir was previously a faculty member of the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. His doctoral work on multi-processor concurrency received the 2004 British Computer Society Distinguished Dissertation Award.
Convergent.io’s mission is to free enterprise customers from the cost and complexity of today's monolithic storage architecture and enable them to focus on their data and applications.
Backed by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, we are developing an integrated storage and networking model that abstracts configuration and functionality from the underlying hardware while making use of innovative storage networking integration and high-performance, commodity hardware to help customers realize the vision of a software-defined datacenter.
Enterprises store, access, and manage data in silly and inefficient ways. They do this because they think it’s safe, and they do it because they don’t know that it can be done better. Convergent.io is out to throw rocks at the enterprise storage establishment. We’re a creative and technical team that thinks storage can be more than a box that sits on the end of a wire.
Convergent.io is a venture-backed startup that is challenging the ways that enterprise data is handled. Our team has experience launching commercial products and high impact startups, but we keep the work environment cooperative, friendly, and low-ego.
We’re looking for talented and creative engineers who wake up driven to build great things. We’re seeking start-up types willing to face down and shake up the storage industry.
If you’ve already cut your teeth in storage, networking, operating systems or virtualization, and are ready to thrive in a creative, no-nonsense and refreshingly honest startup environment, we’d love to hear from you.
Whether you join us in British Columbia or Silicon Valley, you’ll be surrounded by colleagues who will help you grow and demand that you challenge us in return.
Instead of us telling you what you’ll get, you get to help define them. We’ve got the basics covered (Awesome healthcare benefits, flexible hours, snacks, etc.), so feel free to get creative. Sushi happy hour and go-kart racing? No problem.
