A letter to prospective employees from co-founder and CEO David Friend
Really smart and talented individuals are always in demand, but not every company is a good fit for you. The purpose of this letter is to describe Wasabi – our goals, our culture, the kind of company we are – so you can get a better idea of whether this might be the right place for you.
Let me start by describing our goals from a product standpoint so that you can appreciate the magnitude of the opportunity before us. All we do is data storage in the cloud. We call our own unique version of this, Hot Cloud Storage. I shouldn’t say “all” because data storage is one of the greatest opportunities in the IT industry. Along with electricity, bandwidth, and raw computing power, cloud storage is fundamental to nearly everything we do. And it is growing like crazy.
At Wasabi, we know that product alone does not make a company. We empower our employees to thrive by prioritizing their personal lives and showing trust in their abilities, and as a result, they bring remarkable energy and enthusiasm to their careers at Wasabi.
Working at Wasabi has been an incredible experience. This place is a rocketship aimed at the moon. With its dedicated, savvy leadership, Wasabi offers its employees an unrivaled work/ life balance and the opportunity to be part of something big.
Wasabi has enabled me to not only advance my career with a hypergrowth tech company, but to collaborate with my team remotely, all the way from California, without feeling like I'm missing out on a traditional office environment.
I started out at Wasabi as an intern. The internship program at Wasabi gave me unlimited opportunities to learn and grow as a professional. My managers Madison McDaniel and Chelsea Rodgers taught me so much, and since joining full time they have continued to push me to work on projects that both challenge and interest me.
I try to allow my team the space and autonomy to feel comfortable sharing ideas. I encourage open brainstorming sessions and I group people together on projects where I know they have complementary skill sets to bring out the best in each other. Most of all I trust my team, they know this and it shows in the end product.
