About the Position
WatchGuard offers a unique set of opportunities allowing engineers to explore a wide range of challenges. As a smaller-sized company, engineers are able to work with multiple technologies that focus on security solutions, cloud services, embedded systems, and networking. In addition to the breadth of technologies, engineers assume full ownership of their work including design, development, and validation. This creates an exciting and ever challenging environment that fosters personal growth and career opportunities. WatchGuard is looking for individuals that are creative, open to learn new technologies, and don’t accept the status quo.
We are seeking a Systems Architect position to research and develop WatchGuard’s next generation Wi-Fi products and solutions. The scope includes both the access points, hardware and firmware, and the management platform in WatchGuard’s cloud environment. At WatchGuard, you will be a member of our agile development team where we are developing new products and solutions for our end users. We believe that by leveraging new and emerging technologies we can enable business outcomes to improve their performance. If you are looking for a challenge, like solving complex problems, and have a “can do” attitude, then we want to meet you.
