Software Test Engineer - QA Engineer

  • Whippany, NJ
  • Full-time

Company Description

In 2008, WHIPTAIL was born in New Jersey with the goal of changing the way computing was supported. As an IT consultant, Founder James Candelaria grew tired of watching his enterprise clients pour money, almost blindly,
into provisioning more and more (and more) rotational storage simply to achieve minimal performance increases. He wanted to transform the storage industry, targeting the most demanding and costly applications, and he did this by bringing together flash-based drives and enhancing software.

Accelerating data to unforeseen speeds, WHIPTAIL’s silicon storage arrays have finally, and mercifully, broken free of the most limiting factors posed by traditional spinning disks. It’s not one of the many “almost-but-not-quite” technologies flooding the market, such as caching appliances and individual acceleration cards, which offer little more than a cost-ineffective strategy whose performance is dramatically weighed down by the HDD controllers. Instead, WHIPTAIL offers a distinct value proposition at both ends of the spectrum—increased performance with the elimination of wasteful spend.

This is what we do. And this is why we do it.
