VMware Inc.

Overview

VMware Inc. helped pioneer the market for virtualization software, which lets large enterprises add capacity to their computer networks without having to buy new equipment. The Palo Alto, Calif., company sells products that make data servers and networking gear more efficient and less expensive to operate. It also provides consulting, technical support and training services.

VMWare was spun off in an August, 2007, initial public offering by storage-equipment maker EMC Corp., which remains the company's largest shareholder. In 2008, VMware co-founder, president and CEO Diane Greene was fired by the VMware board of directors and replaced by Paul Maritz, a retired Microsoft Corp. veteran who was heading EMC's cloud computing business unit.

VMware has partnerships with the largest hardware makers, including Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co. and IBM.

Culture

VMware’s Palo Alto location provides employees with game and relaxation rooms, free snacks and drinks, onsite cafes, weekly social gatherings, and multiple communal spaces.

Recruiting


Vmware Inc. recruits for the following divisions: product research and development, marketing, sales, IT, finance and accounting, legal, and facilities.

VMware imposed a “hiring pause” in 2008, but has resumed recruiting in 2010.
