Cristiane Evans
Principal Software Engineer

What has been the highlight of your Carbonite career so far?

Over the past six years, Carbonite has given me the opportunity to work with some of the most innovative and supportive engineering teams, the autonomy to utilize market leading technology, and the flexibility to balance my workload and support a family.

Johnathan Ferrick
Product Manager

How would you describe Carbonite's culture?

Carbonite is a highly collaborative company. With offices in different geographic locations, the Carbonite culture makes it very easy to communicate and collaborate with other employees. Managers have an open door policy and most sit with their teams instead of in an office. Carbonistas tend to have in-person conversations to work on cross-functional projects instead of email or chat, so it is pretty common for someone to just walk over to someone’s desk to talk through things.

Rutuja Honnatti
Senior Business Intelligence Engineer
