"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."
 
Leanne
UX Design
"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."
 
Elresa
New Hire Welcome Concierge
"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."
 
Chris
Data Scientist
"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."
 
Madhura
Software Engineer
"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!"

Aaron

"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."
