Channel Sales Operations Analyst

About Pure Storage

We’re here with the humble aspiration to accelerate the speed of human progress with our radically simple, all-flash enterprise storage technology. We’re driven by our belief that storage isn’t just a place to put things, it’s a powerful force to be unleashed - a force that will remove the limitations on those building the world of today, so they can erase the word “impossible” from tomorrow.  Our all-flash storage solutions offer radically simple technology to help companies unlock their future possibilities, today.

Our founders created the company with a passion to build storage technology customers love and deliver it with simplicity and service that fundamentally changes the enterprise storage experience. Founded in 2009, our record revenue growth has landed us among a very select group of companies. Today, customers and industries across the world are experiencing the benefits of going Pure - from Barclays to Linkedin.com and ConocoPhillips, Pure adopters cover a broad spectrum from global consumer brands, to healthcare, education and finance.

The Channel Operations team is responsible for working hand-in-hand with Channel Sales, Sales, Finance, and Operations, with the simple charter of building out the most evolved, energized, and passionate partner ecosystem ever created in IT. Our approach is markedly different and our aspirations are unprecedented.  We are creating something new, different, and smarter than the legacy channel go-to-market approaches.  Counter-intuitive thinking, perseverance, and a strong foundation in data-driven decision making is a must for this role.
