Data Scientist

Our Team

Puritans come from various backgrounds and we thrive off of challenging the norm. This cross pollination of backgrounds has led to numerous ground-breaking ideas and has helped us build one of the most reliable and easy to use storage systems in the industry. We aim to hire the best and brightest people, who excel in a cutting edge, fast paced, collective and open environment.

The Work

Pure Storage was able to disrupt the storage industry in only 6 years by bringing to the market the simplest and most reliable all-flash storage array in history.  The storage disruption is still in its infancy as developers have only just begun to realize the exciting applications that can be built on top of a Pure array.  We have opened a whole new world of computing possibilities for performance, scale, and massive data-intensive computing.  We see a future of exciting new platforms and computing paradigms that will be enabled by unleashing the power, performance, and simplicity of Pure Storage products.

Today, we have exciting work across all of our product groups, including our flagship product FlashArray, the newly announced FlashBlade, and some ground-breaking stealth start-up products. We look for similar engineers across all of these groups - entrepreneurial by nature, who are interested in solving difficult systems problems of high complexity and massive scale, and motivated by the desire to create innovative new products that will have a huge positive impact on anyone who uses a data center.
