What Our Recent Academy Graduates Say     
“As an Associate Customer Success Systems Engineer, our workload consists of work training, obtaining certifications, and shadowing our “buddies”. Most of the time, this entails trainings or preparing for mock demos, which we normally tackle together, as a team of graduates. Each of our buddies are more senior CSSE’s who already work with clients and lead meetings, demos, and workshops.     
After only a few months at Nutanix, you can really feel that the company values its people and culture above all else. Everyone knows everyone, and that creates the most incredible environment. With my colleagues being from all over the world, I also get to practice speaking a lot of different languages, averaging about 3 or 4 different languages a day!” – Issi
