    Who are they?

    Some people say they’re one of the most innovative companies to come out of Silicon Valley and we couldn’t agree more! They’re a billion dollar enterprise level organization which rolls out the red carpet for the modern data experience through unique data storage and management platform, which is is able to satisfy all of a customer’s data storage needs across the entire price and performance range, and they’ve got to this level faster than nearly every enterprise company in tech firm history.

    They’ve grown to around 5000 Puritans (500+ in Prague’s R&D office as of June 2023, doubled the size from last year) globally across 38 countries and they’re not close to finishing. They’ve been a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant in primary storage AND solid state arrays for 9+ years. You may have heard of NPS (Net Promoter Score) as a common instrument used for measuring customer loyalty by Fortune 500 firms. Theirs is in the top 1% of all B2B companies.

    The R&D center in Prague is their largest one in Europe and second largest globally, only behind their HQ in California. Their teams here are leading the way in product development and are working on projects exclusively owned by the Prague office which already has and definitely will have a global impact on the progression and perception of Pure Storage. They’re setting up new business units and teams on a consistent basis, which means amazing opportunities to take your career in exactly the direction you want.
