You Would:  

The Cloud Continuity for Azure team enhances and maintains the software powering the SIRIS and Alto business continuity and disaster recovery products (~80,000 devices deployed across all 7 continents). In a nutshell, these BCDR products are appliances that take block-level backups of physical, virtual and public cloud based Windows machines, transforms them into raw disk images, and then stores the resultant images in a local ZFS-based disk array. The devices also provide secondary backup by offsiting to the Datto cloud. In the event of a disaster, our customers can then restore these backups in a variety of formats including local or remotely hosted virtual machines, iSCSI targets, Samba shares, or use them to provision replacement physical hardware. The same software powering these devices is also packaged as a virtual appliance which can integrate directly with our customers virtual environments. You will be working on the Cloud Continuity team to enhance and optimize our BCDR solution to run in Azure and protect Azure based virtual machines.
