|Pivotal||SAN FRANCISCO, CA|
Pivotal is a software engineering firm founded by former VMware chief Paul Maritz. This company is the hot, new popular kid of enterprise data, as they work with 30% of Fortune 100 companies already.
Basically, they make software that helps make software.
So if a company like General Electric wants to build an interactive enterprise-grade suggestion box, they use Pivotal software to manage that process.
While you may not have heard of Pivotal, they are getting massive with past investments from:
- GV Capital
Oh yeah, and they went public last month after making $509m in revenue last year (NYSE: PVTL).
Started in 2013, Pivotal is rocketing upwards because it is literally the only software in the enterprise world that can run on every major crowd platform.
Needless to say, they are pretty cash-flush these days so Pivotal takes good care of employees with lots of cool benefits and a high likelihood of a decent work/life balance.
This is a big stable company with 2,000+ employees and routine 9-to-5 operating hours. Pay is above average for most positions. They also have offices all over the world, with regional headquarters in San Francisco, New York, and London.
In the enterprise world Pivotal will have some name recognition, but to a kid on the street Pivotal may as well be a wrestling move. This is also a company that primarily deals with large enterprises, so if you’re not into the corporate lifestyle, this might not be a pinfall (that’s a wrestling reference).
Who’s it for:
Pivotal is perfect for someone who doesn’t want the crazy work schedule or uncertainty that comes with a brand new startup. It’s a good fit for someone prioritizing stability and long-term growth over a high risk, high reward venture. Plus, Pivotal prides themselves on work-and-life balance, so yes, you can pick up the kids from soccer practice.
