How to Get Hired
We asked VMware, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
People who join VMware — and the people we seek — know that it’s a place where they can take an active role in their future. They’re gifted individuals who want to determine the direction of their career. They aspire to be agents of change, transforming technology and business for the good of our customers. And they’re citizens of the world who want to make an impact locally in the community and globally, too. VMware hires people with these characteristics because they’re the basis of our EPIC2 (Execution, Passion, Integrity, Customers, and Community) values.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We thrive on ingenuity; the best way to get our attention is to be creative.
Employee referrals are our number one source of new hires. So, anyone interested in joining us should start by scouring their networks for people who are connected to VMware (including our recruiters)—or by engaging in one of our online social communities.We are socially involved and active on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Instagram, as well as Glassdoor, HackerRank and StackOverflow. Make sure your LinkedIn profile is updated with your latest projects, skills, aspirations, and a little bit about who you are so that we can quickly identify the most relevant opportunities for you within our workplace. Ask questions and share your ideas and passions or send us a resume. Connect with us and show interest.
Remember that VMware seeks people who are passionate and have a drive and love for their work.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We’re growing our product development and sales teams in four areas:• Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC): The technology backbone supporting virtual storage and availability, network and security, and management and automation. • Networking & Security: Embedding networking and security functionality into the hypervisor to transform the data center’s operational model and allow the full potential of SDDC to be realized. • Cloud Management: Delivering the most complete solution for managing a heterogeneous, hybrid cloud. • End-User-Computing (EUC): Providing secure desktop, mobile and social access to data, applications and devices to support productivity in mobile-cloud environments while retaining appropriate control over the computing environment. We are hiring Field sales professionals, especially Solution sales people with management software expertise; and Quality Engineers within R&D.
Our consulting division, or Professional Services Organization (PSO), seeks Business Solution Architects, Operations Architects and Senior Systems Engineers (SE) to provide direct support for our SDDC and Cloud Management customers.
