Hungry. Humble. Honest. Our values define who we are and play a crucial role in our hiring process. We are hungry to grow and expand with the right talent. Humbled by the feedback we receive from our candidates, and honest and transparent with our leaders regarding potential improvements. Nutanix knows that first impressions matter and recognizes that our candidates are likely interviewing at multiple companies. We value our candidates’ time. That’s why we are committed to a best-in-class interview experience and actively solicit feedback from the 3,000+ candidates our employees interviewed in the last fiscal year. As a company, Nutanix provides our customers and employees with an amazing experience; the Nutanix interview process is no different.

Recently we recognized that our interview process was in need of a little refinement, so we focused ourselves on overhauling the interview and overall candidate experience with the same dedication we show to our customers every day. We began with a more structured interview process, making sure interviewers weren’t repeating the same set of questions and that they correlated directly to the core competencies needed to succeed in the position. Another area we worked to improve was limiting our interview panel to no more than five people that would be responsible for the hiring decision. And since our candidate’s interview experience extends beyond interaction with people to technology, we worked to integrate more robust and state-of-the-art tools to help with technical evaluations. We’re proud that these changes have resulted in a positive candidate experience and are thrilled to be ranked 14 out of 100 companies on Glassdoor’s list of the Best Places to Interview in the U.S., according to the company’s most recent report.

The current talent landscape is highly competitive and the amazing perks we offer including industry-leading benefits packages, unlimited PTO, 20 hours of paid volunteer time off and extensive learning opportunities, sometimes aren’t enough to set us apart from the pack. Therefore, we are 100% committed to creating a best-in-class interview experience for our candidates and taking the time to provide training to all hiring teams to conduct the most effective interviews possible.

Beyond taking pride in being recognized for the great experience we offer our candidates, we’re pleased to be included in such fine company. Among the 100 companies Glassdoor featured are 14 Nutanix customers, including five from the Fortune 500, as well as our longstanding partner, CDW. We’re also the only datacenter software company to make the list. At Nutanix, we’ve long prided ourselves on having the highest customer satisfaction scores in the industry, and it’s outstanding to see how that commitment has extended into the way we engage with our candidates and employees.

From the outside in, something as small as feedback on an interview may not seem important, but at Nutanix, we understand that our success is built on the personal growth of our employees. We’d be nothing without our amazing talent and hearing directly from our candidates about the experience they’ve had with us only helps us to continually improve. And we’re not stopping at the interview. We’re committed to ensuring that Nutanix is one of the best places to work and want to hear about your experience, whether as a candidate interviewing for a new position or a valued employee.
