Position Available: QA Testing

iXsystems, an industry leader in open source storage solutions (FreeNAS, TrueNAS, PC-BSD), is on the lookout for committed, enthusiastic testers to help our software development group produce the best open source products on the market. The rapid growth our company continues to enjoy has put a premium on enhanced automation and quality assurance. We are looking for individuals who are highly self-driven and able to work closely with our engineers in assessing the most appropriate priorities for testing, the creation of automated test frameworks, and driving the overall testing process to higher levels of quality and automation.

Candidates who enjoy a challenging environment, a great deal of autonomy, and working with a larger open source community will be especially well-suited to these positions, skills in any of the following areas also being a plus but not strictly mandatory - we are willing to train the right candidates, enthusiasm and willingness to work hard counting for at least as much as experience!

  • Network Attached Storage technologies (FreeNAS experience a huge plus)
  • Familiarity with Unix Operating systems (any flavor)
  • Python, Perl, Ruby or Unix shell scripting
  • Experience with testing frameworks and testing automation.
  • A basic understanding of the software life-cycle


    • Great working environment, with some flexibility in working from home and in the office.
    • Ability to work closely with a popular open source project, as well as commercial variants.
    • Health/Dental coverage after 90 days.
    • Compensation is competitive, based on experience

Qualified candidates should respond with a copy of their current resumé as well as any pertinent contact details so that we can arrange a short phone conversation to assess our mutual interest!

Position Available: Software Developer

iXsystems is looking for a few good developers!

Who are we? iXsystems are the corporate sponsors of the FreeNAS project, the #1 open source storage solution. We are also the sponsors of PC-BSD, FreeBSD for the desktop, and long-time contributors to the FreeBSD and ZFS projects! You could say that Open Source and OS development is in our blood. If you feel the same way, please read further!

Deep knowledge of Unix and Unix internals is required (Linux is OK, but BSD is a big plus!). Must be extremely fluent in Python. C fluency should be good, but not necessarily expert-level.  Storage / Enterprise market experience is also a plus, though not a strict requirement; if you’re a great Unix + Web developer, we can teach you about the storage and enterprise market! You will also have the ability to substantially influence the evolution of the FreeNAS product, as well as other future Hardware+OSS Software appliances, with very little internal politics or “silos” to stand in your way. We are a small shop, and those who do great work get long leashes!

iXsystems is based in San Jose, CA so residency or willingness to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area is definitely a plus, but not a strict requirement - for the right person, we will consider full or part time telecommuting from inside or outside the U.S. H1-B VISA sponsorship will also be considered for the right person (if you really kick butt, we’ll go the extra mile in both respects!). We also offer competitive salaries, health benefits, and 401K.

Interested? Think you have what it takes? Contact Jordan Hubbard <jkh [at] ixsystems [dot] com> with a current copy of your resumé. Cover letters appreciated but not required!
