SevOne – Why Work For Us?


SevOne's Game Room

What’s our “Type"?

We inspire a Culture of Awesome at SevOne and we look for passion in everyone we hire. Our mentality is simple: – work hard, play hard, and put our customers first -- always.

At SevOne, it’s common to pass by employees dressed in jeans and a hoodie and then see someone in a button-down and dress pants, anything goes…well almost. We expect nothing less than awesome, from ourselves, each other and most importantly – our product.

SevOne’s open-air environment encourages collaboration and eliminates walls between executives and the rest of the company. We look for rock stars who enjoy collaborating in teams. From Development, QA and Support to Sales, Marketing and Operations -- we believe in individualism championed within a team environment.

Part of our fun-loving culture includes company-sponsored lunches, interoffice dart wars, Frisbee Fridays and video game tournaments.

The SevOne story began with a desperate need for innovation. When the available network performance monitoring solutions no longer scaled to keep pace with the current size of networks, they set out to develop a product that could keep up with network growth. We built a patented Cluster architecture that uses distributed computing to peer appliances together as the network grows. The result – SevOne monitors enormously complex networks without having a bottleneck effect. So Vess Bakalov, Co-Founder and CTO, and Jim Young, VP of Architecture, worked long hours, late into the night, to build the SevOne solution. Eventually they moved into our first office space, “The Garage”, a garage behind a comic book store, in Newark, Delaware.

Over the past nine years, the company has seen huge success; growing from two employees to around four hundred, spread globally.

We are always looking to take infrastructure monitoring to a new level – which means always expanding our team. Our engineers constantly work on new features to continue delivering the best product in the industry; and our sales team is always looking for new customers that will benefit from SevOne’s innovation.

Along came SevOne, Engineered for Speed at Scale, purpose-built to replace legacy platforms incapable of intuitively and cost- effectively scaling to meet the demands of today’s infrastructures.

SevOne abandons the concept of a centralized database. Instead, it relies on a patented ClusterTM architecture built upon the concepts of distributed computing. A single, self-contained appliance —physical or virtual — handles data collection, storage, reporting, alerting and analytics. You can monitor up to200,000 objects using just this single appliance. Or, you can peer together several appliances to monitor millions of objects — all with no impact on the performance of the monitoring platform.

So what does “speed at scale” look like in a real situation? Here’s example: with SevOne, you can run a TopN report on most utilized interfaces across five million objects -- and still get results in less than five seconds. The threat of “too much data” will never slow you down.

Careers - Sales

SevOne employs the very best sales superstars in the industry. Our sales organization is designed to set employees up for success through hard work and mentorship. Some of the world’s most recognizable brands, including Comcast, Vodafone and Morgan Stanley use SevOne to monitor the performance of their critical infrastructures such as, networks, systems and applications.

The work hard, play hard atmosphere is truly evident in all three of our buzzing East Coast offices. Music, corn hole, darts, and the occasional baseball pitch competition are all part of the daily lives of our sales people.

The success of SevOne’s sales team is a result of our daily commitment to teamwork and relentless execution. Our teams work together from the initial sales call, to product demonstration, to deal closure.

Careers - Engineering

Our brilliant engineers and techies are consistently bringing cutting edge features to our product. We pride our development on their creativity and excellence. The Engineering teams are responsible for the continuous inspiration that goes into our product.

Teamwork is a big part of the lives of our engineers. Working in teams, such as the “Code Monkeys” and the “Data Daemons” allows us to bounce ideas off one another and form a community of teammates within SevOne.

Engineers at SevOne truly embody the work hard, play hard mentality. Their day-to-day activities includes both stimulating and creative coding as well as dart wars and video game tournaments.

Over the past few years SevOne has developed an exciting internship program, called S.M.A.R.T.S. (Start My Awesome Road to SevOne) College Program. Interning at SevOne involves real-life experience, a steep learning curve and a strong mentorship program. S.M.A.R.T.S. interns gain hands-on experience and their work feeds into important company projects – you won’t be serving your team coffee! We have a responsibility to teach and guide our S.M.A.R.T.S. interns. Our goal is to have them graduate from the program with a strong sense of accomplishment. For the duration of the program, interns develop leadership skills, gain real world experience, learn from management presentations and have an opportunity to network with the industry’s leading professionals. Because of this, SevOne only takes on the best of the best to develop into awesome professionals.

    I have been working at SevOne full-time (less than an year)


    This job is certainly not boring... If you're looking to actually work and get things done this is the place to do it. They have a "work hard play hard" mentality here and it shows .


    Upper management still has more say in every things rather than letting middle management handle it. This results in tasks and ordering slowing down since things have to trickle thru so many layers of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the managers you hired handle matters they were hired to handle. It would speed things up a bit. Outside of that this place is great, i hope the culture scales with the company.
