What surprised you about Pivotal?

"I was amazed at the level of transparency and how much everyone was willing to share their time to invest in my learning. Even outside of the Finance Team, I got the chance to shadow managers and partners across the organization to better understand different business drivers. I then got to learn how to transform those drivers into models and projections that drive strategic solutions.”

Finance Intern, San Francisco

There is a friendly and supportive environment, which is something I’ve found at Pivotal as a whole. People want to get to know you for who you really are, which fosters constant sharing and community.”

Tell me about Pivotal’s culture.

"Being a black woman in tech isn’t easy, so I was really happy and surprised by Pivotal’s culture. It’s welcoming and nobody judges based on any stereotypes or prejudices. The people here genuinely love their jobs and similarly care about your future and your career goals. They want to see you succeed so they constantly support you along the way.”

Zayd Zori, Spelman College

How did you grow professionally?

"Through pairing, I was able to work directly alongside full-time software engineers, learning everything from keyboard shortcuts to the foundations of Cloud Foundry. I became more comfortable working on a team, communicating my ideas to other people, and working collaboratively to solve problems.”

Gemma Standley, Cornell University
Software Engineering Intern, New York City

How has your career taken off at Pivotal?
