About Cumulus Networks

Cumulus is leading the transition of the data center market from a closed and proprietary environment to one that embraces open, standards-based systems. Unlike anyone else in the market, we build networking products purely with Linux, bringing its standard interfaces and rich ecosystem to our customers so that they can achieve a new level of control. Our software, Cumulus Linux, is the only solution that allows you to affordably build and efficiently operate your network like the world’s largest data center operators, whether you have 6 racks or 6 data centers. By effectively unlocking the vertical network stack, this modern network architecture bridges new technologies with the old and enables full insight and connection from mainframe to microservices. We call it web-scale networking. 

With over 1,000 customers and over 2.75 million switch ports worldwide, Cumulus Networks powers data centers ranging from small businesses and universities to enterprises and some of the world’s largest cloud providers. There is a reason why 1/3 of the Fortune 50 are moving away from proprietary systems and running their networks with Cumulus. 

Our corporate headquarters is in Mountain View, CA. We also have offices in North Carolina (Cary) and Bangalore, India. Aside from these locations, we have individuals working throughout the United States and internationally.

What it's like to work here

We’re a start-up built by people who have gone down this road before. This means that we have the chaos, speed and hard work of any start-up, but we strive for work-life balance. Our offices are set up in an open space model, with sit/stand desks for every employee. We have excessively fancy espresso machines in every location. We have catered lunches three times per week, and stock organic fruit in the kitchen. Beyond the basics, working here puts our employees at the center of some of the most interesting and exciting ideas in Silicon Valley. We are a very tech-driven company, and have earned a lot of industry recognition in a short period of time.

What we’re looking for

Our employees are smart, and passionate about what they do. Our general philosophy is to hire people with the right skills and the right attitude, and give them the opportunity to do awesome things. People who are successful here are self-starters and problem-solvers; Cumulus is changing an industry, and we need people who are excited to take on that challenge.
