Job Change: Heading To The Mothership

It’s is with great pleasure that I post about a change of role and company.  I have had a phenomenal two years working as an SE at Veeam, but I am now making the move from VMware eco-system partner, to VMware itself.

I’ll be moving to VMware in the role of Senior SE and expanding the scope of my day-to-day work beyond just data protection.  VMware has posted some fantastic results in recent weeks, including double digit growth (almost unheard of for a company of it’s size).  The new role will give me the opportunity to work with customers in a wide breadth of areas with a killer product range covering Software Defined Data Center, Cloud and End User Computing.

If you’ve ever asked yourself the question, why would you want to work at VMware?, here are some key facts, VMware is:

  • a $5Billion+ company currently posting double-digit growth.
  • the #1 preferred vendor for private cloud.
  • one of the Top 3 most innovative companies in 2013 (source Forbes).

Perhaps the question you should be asking is why wouldn’t you want to work at VMware?

Monday will be my first day at the company and I can’t wait to get started. Expect more VMware focused blogs to appear in the near future.
