Although Gunjan doesn’t come from a storage background, she came across a job opening at Pure Storage that perfectly complemented her qualifications as an embedded software engineer. She decided to research the company, saw positive reviews across the board, and decided to interview. She has now been with the company for over one year.
Gunjan’s primary goal is to ensure that her team’s work and interests align with the Pure Storage mission, as well as the company’s long- and short-term goals. On a day-to-day basis, she facilitates design discussions, reviews code, and assists with testing and triage. Most importantly, she manages inter-team dependencies, such as deadlines and deliverables, so her team can focus on completing projects.
“There’s a culture of openness at Pure Storage, which means we have a lot of access to our executive staff. We have an All Hands meeting, which is a good, interactive way to keep the engineers on board with any mission the company decides to pursue.”
“My advice to someone coming in to interview is to be prepared to write some code, be ready to reason about your code writing decisions, and be ready to have a conversation. The most fun thing about the interviews here is that they are very conversational.”
