Pivotal’s Story VIDEO
As a recognized leader in disciplined agile and lean software development practices, Pivotal combines the Silicon Valley state of mind, modern approach, and infrastructure with organizations’ core expertise and values. Our cloud-native platform and suite of data tools drive software innovation for many of the world’s most admired brands, helping enterprises move at start-up speeds and with greater business agility. We optimize for change and teach next-generation developers to create and build new solutions, and are committed to open source and open standards.
Our methodology is about evolving, in both development and innovation, and our culture is empowering. Our 2,000+ employees across offices worldwide subscribe to an ethos of kindness. We make a point to bring empathy to each and every project, and are guided by a purposeful mission—to transform how the world builds software.
Our London office is growing fast and we could use a hand keeping it, and some of the company’s primary systems, running smoothly. Your job will become as big as you make it. The prime directive is: do the right thing, do what works, and be kind. We want you to help us do that.
If it has a MAC address, it’s ours. We keep things working so that everyone else can focus on what they do best. We value personal communication over documentation, time over money, and good enough today over perfect next week. When we want a hand we pair and learn. Got it well in hand? Get it done.
We’re an Apple shop, but some people will be on Windows or Linux instead of Macs. If you’ve got background in all three, we’re stoked. If not, we'll teach you. We deal with mobile of every stripe. As few printers as possible. We love Google Apps. We keep as many services hosted as we can. You’ll also have the chance to work with cool stuff like Casper Suite, macOS Server, Okta’s SSO, and ESXi, but you don’t need to be familiar with those now.
Hot breakfast shows up at 8:30am. After we eat, we get together for a chat on what’s happening that day. We all stand up to keep it quick. Once you hit your desk, it’s up to you. What looks important? What do you want to work on alone? What do you want to pair on with one of the other team members? What do you want to kick to someone else? You have a lot of latitude in deciding how to do your job. If you work here, we trust you.
