“What drives me: learning new things, perfecting my craft, working with smart and amazing people, and helping my clients succeed.”
—Ian, Engineering Manager
“Pivotal is where programmers go to become better programmers—not so much hackers as craftspeople. ”
“Pairing and the regular schedule are key — I get useful things done at work every day, while having time for the rest of my life outside the office.”
—Sarah, Software Developer
“Everyday, I am surrounded by smart people who all want to do the right thing.”
—Davis, Engineering Manager
“As soon as you walk into a Pivotal office, you’ll feel the energy in the air. The sound of over 100 people collaborating and the open floor plan creates a vibe you won’t feel at any typical work place.”
—Ryan, Engineering Manager
“Pivots aren’t lone wolves in dark cube farms with our heads down and headphones on. We crave the social interaction with each other and our clients.”
—Will, Engineering Manager
One of our most enjoyable perks is the full breakfast we serve at all Pivotal locations, five days a week. Whether you feel like scrambled eggs, bagels, oatmeal or fresh fruit, it’s likely our breakfast hosts will stock it for you. We believe that starting the day with good fuel helps you focus on what’s ahead. Check out some of our meals on Twitter.
Pivots are coffee aficionados; you will always find fresh brews and cappuccino machines humming in the kitchen. We also stock a full range of juices, waters and sodas. We like to eat well, so fresh fruit is always on hand along with healthy packaged snacks. If there’s something in particular you’re after, just ask! We’re happy to order it in.
The tech world innovates at an amazing pace. To keep you informed, we invite guest speakers to discuss hot topics once a week at most Pivotal locations. These sessions are informal. We ask lots of questions in the interest of learning and growing as Pivots.
We think hard work needs to be balanced with fun. Pivot Pong gives you the opportunity to step away from the machines and clear your head in a social setting. Every campus has tables and a competition ladder. Even our executives get involved. If ping pong isn’t your thing, not to worry — we do other fun stuff, too.
We keep the fridges full for social events and like to head offsite to let off steam at least once a month. Oh, and we pick up the tab! Pivots are a pretty social bunch; many solid friendships are cemented during this down time.
