“Digital transformation” is a hot topic, but what does it mean? It’s a business strategy to move from a hardware-based to a software-defined IT architecture to support new levels of digital agility, global reach, and multi-media and mobile engagements.
Riverbed is a storied company with a 14-year legacy of success and market leadership. We’re known primarily for SteelHead and our success in the WAN optimization market which that product launched back in 2004. But Riverbed is much more than WAN op.
Today, we’re at the center of what’s going on in the software industry, including hybrid and software-defined networking, SD-WAN, cloud and mobile applications, big data, and application and network visibility. Riverbed brings the promise of digital transformation to life because we make it all work better – applications, websites, networks, data centers, branch and remote offices.
Best of all, as a private company now we’re like a billion-dollar start-up, successfully pivoting to meet the software-defined age head on as the leading infrastructure provider, and moving upward with momentum to new levels of revenue and profit growth. We offer a fast-paced, start-up-like environment, allowing everyone to contribute where and how they can, but with the backing of an established, financially strong leader.
That’s why we’re seeking the best and brightest application developers, cloud wranglers and networking geniuses to help build the new software-defined era.

Riverbed is dynamic, with regard to the people and work. It’s the kind of place where monotonicity never sets in; everyone is always motivated to take up bigger and better tasks each day.
After getting my Ph.D degree, I joined Riverbed Engineering. I am glad I did, because working on interesting problems for cutting edge technology and making life easy for customers is the norm at Riverbed.
Riverbed gives engineers the freedom to choose the best tool to provide the best results. Now is a great time to be here because you could get to work on a whole array of new products right from the design stage and take it all the way to production.
What is unique about Riverbed is how it has retained a great engineering culture even as it expanded in size and along different geographies.
