Company Description

Arista Networks pioneered software-driven, cognitive cloud networking for large-scale
datacenter and campus environments. Arista's award-winning platforms, ranging in
Ethernet speeds from 10 to 400 gigabits per second, redefine scalability, agility and
resilience. Arista has shipped more than 20 million cloud networking ports worldwide
with CloudVision and EOS, an advanced network operating system. Committed to open
standards, Arista is a founding member of the 25/50G consortium. Arista Networks
products are available worldwide directly and through partners.

Going far beyond the standard call center or tiered support position, the Technical Solutions Engineer at Arista Networks is a top-level engineer, equivalent to a Tier 3 or Escalation Engineer in most support organizations. The TSE works in a non-silo environment, supporting Arista’s campus networking products and solutions. He or she will work directly with both the customer and (when needed) the software and hardware development teams. The TSE team also performs all their own recreates in a dedicated lab environment.

Giving customers direct access to a high-level engineer streamlines the support process and raises customer satisfaction.

This is an excellent opportunity to be part of one of the fastest-growing technology companies as we continue the growth and expansion, with a focus on the Enterprise and Campus markets.
