Company Reviews

I was hired as an intern at SolidFire two years ago, then I successfully converted to a Network Engineer. My experiences at SolidFire could not have been better. The dynamic environment has allowed me to learn a lot in very little time. I am surrounded by very smart people who are willing to collaborate and are open to new ideas. Communication is transparent and clear. I receive recognition and rewards for my performance which keeps me motivated.
