Bitnami is big (and getting bigger every day). It offers 100-plus server applications and dev stacks in a convenient one-stop shop, and more than one million of its products are downloaded each month.
Bitnami is also a little different than your average company. Check out why it stands out.
1. What Bitnami Looks For
Rather than focusing on how impressive your previous job titles or employers were, Bitnami’s management wants to see that you’re curious, enthusiastic, and adaptable—and, most importantly, that you can turn good ideas into results.
The company even offers Bitnami Bootcamp, a two-week program for engineering candidates (that’s right—before they’re even hired) that lets them get valuable training in deployment and server software management. The Bootcamp participants get a feel for Bitnami’s culture and people, and many of them have gone on to join Bitnami.
“If I had to pick traits that I would look for in a developer to work with, it would be driven, passionate, independent, and willing to learn,” says developer Connor Atherton.
2. How Bitnami Operates
Bitnami has an awesome culture, and the team is always finding ways to make it better.
“Bitnami’s culture is very unique as a startup because we don’t have a template for everything that we do,” explains staffer Miranda Myerholtz. “Our team designs processes as we grow—which allows us to be very flexible and keep learning.”
Myerholtz plans events like wine cruises, cooking classes, and trips for the company’s San Francisco staff. At the Seville, Spain office, Bitnami team members enjoy ski trips, wine tastings, futbol matches, and more.
“We are hard-working, intellectually curious, and enjoy an environment where we continuously learn from each other,” says VP of Product Simon Bennett. “Half of our team is in Europe (U.K., Spain, and Poland) and half is in the U.S., so that means we get a fresh perspective on things and not just the Silicon Valley Kool-Aid.”
3. Where Bitnami’s Going
There’s a huge cloud computing transformation going on, and Bitnami is perfectly positioned for that transformation. The company’s partners include Amazon, Azure, and Google, and it’s got several more major collaborations in the works.
Bitnami is becoming the go-to source for cloud platform adoption, which means a ton of growth for this company—and a big opportunity for you.
