    This company is booming and you can feel it! DDN is consistently hiring, growing, and succeeding. Employees have the freedom to take their own approach on getting the job done, as long as it gets done in a timely manner. My experience here has been fulfilling because I am challenged in a healthy and positive way, I am consistently given the opportunity to improve upon current processes, and my colleagues feel like more than just colleagues. DDN is on its way to the highest ranks of the industry and if you are someone looking for growth, professional flexibility, and certain future success, now is the time to join. DDN offers some wonderful benefits taboot!


    If you need set-in-stone structure, this is not the place for you. There are not black and white lines, or a rule-book to refer to. (This is part of what I personally love about it here, but some would find this too chaotic and discouraging.)

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DDN Storage (San Jose, CA) in July 2015.


    I applied on line and the company recruiter got back to me within 2 weeks to set up the interview. The interview lasted about 30 min as scheduled. The hiring manager was very nice, small talk leading to the technical questions. It was hard to gauge the interview as the whole experience seemed smooth. I followed up with the company recruiter a week later and no feed back was provided. Overall the company sounds interesting and the interview experience was pleasant.
