Software Architect, User Interface

Why Pure

We are ushering in a new era of user experience to the datacenter. The installation, configuration, and administration of the modern datacenter is increasingly complex and fraught with complication. That is, it was until Pure1. The promise of Pure1 is to bring an end to all of that complexity. Pure1 is management and support made easy and intelligent. It’s cloud-based, so customers can access their systems from anywhere, with any device. Backed by modern data analytics, it’s 24/7 proactive and predictive support, so we’ll be finding and fixing issues before users are even aware of them. And it’s SaaS, so users always have our latest innovations at their next login, automatically.

We are pioneering a fundamentally different way of managing enterprise infrastructure via the cloud and are looking for a hands-on lead architect with a strong track record of building web-based graphical user interfaces to turn our vision into reality.   The UI Architect will lead the design and development for all User Interfaces for Pure1- This person will take a key leadership role in defining the vision for how users will experience Pure1, and drive that vision from a scalable architecture all the way into production. He/she will work closely with design, product management, engineering, and Pure’s leadership team to define and deliver the end to end the SaaS based user experience that will help us build on our industry lead in customer satisfaction.
