Build Something Meaningful
Tackle the most challenging problems and build technologies that have real impact.
Principles & Practices

The pair is our fundamental work and decision-making unit and provides two sets of eyes on every line of code. Great ideas evolve from the pairing environment and you always have somebody to help solve a problem.

It’s not about us. User experiences are the bookends to pairing. We don’t make decisions based on titles or chains of command. We collaborate, test, and do the right thing.

We write software in the best way because we apply continuous integration. The pair tests, iterates, makes the call, and ships what works. You close a story, and move on.

We write software for humans and we walk the distance in the customer’s shoes. We respect others. We don’t blame. We build things, fix things, and we collaborate.

Challenge how things are done, build new worlds...and make it home for dinner too.

"Pivotal values diversity and is committed to fostering a culture that encourages inclusion and allows for everyone to be at their best."
Joe Militello, Chief People Officer

Together we can build something meaningful.

"Learning about new technology and sharing it with others is what I like best, and Pivotal is an ideal environment for exploring what's out there in the wider tech ecosystem. I joined to learn from and collaborate with some of the best minds in our industry, and so far it's been all I hoped and more!"
Bridget, Principal Technologist
"At Pivotal, I get to be part of the transformation that is happening with Cloud-Native applications. The best part of my day is when I'm interacting with customers and using the Pivotal technology stack to help them solve their business needs."
Tobias, Field Engineer
"My job has changed so much over the past 6 years - from designing mobile UI on early smartphone platforms to building a team of inspiring designers to growing our research-driven practice. I'm constantly learning! My day might include a scoping meeting with a potential client, working on a workshop plan for a Discovery & Framing, or matching designers to upcoming projects or rotations."
Leanne, UX Design
"I provide a high touch welcoming experience for all of our newest employees. In my role I have the ability to be incredibly creative and watch ideas really take shape. I think this is something particular to the culture here of continuous learning."
Elresa, New Hire Welcome Concierge
"I work with my teammates to help companies solve their biggest challenges using data-driven approaches. My work varies from immersing myself in a new domain, data wrangling, building machine learning models, to presenting results and communicating the impact of the work to executives at a final meeting."
Chris, Data Scientist
"I really enjoy pair programming because I learn something new every day. Having a pair means you always have someone to play ping pong with! I love our open culture and how communicating with others is so easy. When in doubt you can just walk up to anyone. Working on cool new technologies coupled with a bunch of great people is what makes life at Pivotal so enjoyable for me!"
Madhura, Software Engineer
"I work with a team full of smart, talented people who are trusted implicitly to self-organize to get things done. That autonomy and a focus on results means we can execute in ways that would never be possible in a traditional organization."
John, Advisory Platform Architect
"I support our Data Suite - a broad and flexible pricing model for many of our data products. I work closely with the field and my peers in product marketing and product management for discreet data products. The best part of my day is when I click 'Finish' and 'Deliver' on Pivotal Tracker (yes, we even use it in product marketing!)."
Dormain, Product Marketing
"My role as a designer is to gain empathy for the user, share this knowledge with the team, test a hypothesis, wire-frame workflows, build prototypes, make pretty and support developers and the team. Working at Pivotal is like receiving a degree in Agile and Lean methodologies."
Aaron, Product Design

Equal Employment Opportunity

Pivotal Software, Inc.

We are committed to recruiting, hiring, developing and promoting employees without discrimination. As a global employer, this commitment includes complying with all laws in the countries in which we operate. But we believe equal employment practices should not be limited to what the law requires. Equal opportunity and inclusion are essential to motivate, empower and recognize the best in everyone.

Employment actions must not be based on race, color, religion, creed, gender (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, marital status, gender identity or expression, national origin or ancestry, genetics, age, disability status, protected veteran status, citizenship status when otherwise legally able to work, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Pivotal will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants except in very limited circumstances identified by law.
