An Insider's view of NetApp

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office vibe is one of excitement. On one hand, there is always work to be done and a new project or product to be working on which helps keep the office thriving. On the other hand, we have a lot of fun! Whether it is over a surprise mini golf course in the office for April Fool’s Day, or a happy hour in the breakroom. We work hard & play hard.

Kayte

Workplace Resources Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I've always been a fan of walking around and socializing. I've worked with many of the people here at previous companies, so knowing so many people makes it easy to grab a lunch, find out what other teams are up to. We also put on a hackathon and encourage working with people from other groups. I talk to everyone!

Dave

NetApp is very proactive in providing the opportunity to investigate, apply for & interview for, other openings within the company. Furthermore, the opportunity to work on various technologies comes often enough I feel like my skills are always up to date with current technology trends.

Kenton

Tech Lead – Solutions Quality Interoperability Testing

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Def hackathons! Lot of good initiatives have come out of these. We are also starting a couple of initiatives. One is centered around connecting our engineers with our customers so that they can help bring the perspective as we are solving complex problems. We are also looking at connecting passion to the opportunity.

Tina

Sr. Engineering Manager, Cloud Infrastructure

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I try to focus on leading by objectives. Then give them freedom to do the work as they see fit. If I can respond to a request for advice, I’m there. If I can make a suggestion for a problem they surface, I’m glad to do that, but how they do their job rests with them.
