About the Opportunity

What the Team Says

  • James H. - Opportunity. If anyone asks me, What do you love the most about working at Nutanix? my answer is always opportunity. I came in as an intern, and as soon as I showed my willingness and actions to lean forward, I was given multiple opportunities to grow and even become exposed to leadership roles. At Nutanix, if you put in the work, you get to carve your path, and every colleague involved will continue to assist in cultivating your success. Tenure is not a part of the conversation on making an impact...Drive is. There have been so many success stories of incoming SREs that climb swiftly through the ranks by displaying the hard work put in that translates to career growth and happiness.”
  • Josh Y.As a new hire, I’ve noticed very quickly that Nutanix is composed of talented professionals and great people. It’s truly satisfying knowing that I work on a team where I can trust each team member’s knowledge, training, and customer care. Nutanix is a place of investment - where training is taken seriously so that our team can be equally equipped, and we may each provide a similarly great customer experience.
