Great place to work!

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Azul Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAzul is a great place if you are technically strong and want to work on interesting things. Over the last several years, the company has transitioned to pure software products and the strategy appears to be working. Management seems to be making the right decisions on bringing in new leadership as needed, and does not allow poor performers to stick around. Company culture is fun and supportive, and you can achieve healthy work/life balance here.

ConsCompany has been around for some time now (since 2002) and there is some legacy still left of the hardware business which probably is not ideal compared to a new software startup company.

Advice to Senior ManagementExpand the product portfolio to have a broader set of product offerings.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A great place to be, but may be a little uncomfortable for your family

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Azul Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat technology. Amazing people to work with (and to work for). Lot of freedom to get the work done right.

ConsWhile I was there, the hardware team was laid off upon completion of the project; the sales teams were constantly being laid off; and there were constant discussions of layoffs, bankruptcy, etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Complex and interesting products to work on. Management taking care of employees

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Azul Systems

ProsRecently, Azul did something really nice to show appreciation to employees for Azul's 10th anniversary. I can't say what it was due to confidentiality restrictions, but suffice is to say it was a nice surprise and excited the whole company! Nice to see the Executives and the Board taking care of the employees!

ConsIt would be better if there were more engineers to be able to support customers and also work on the product roadmap. There is a lot of work for a pretty small engineering team.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecruit, recruit, recruit more engineers!

Fascinating technology, nice people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Azul Systems

ProsReally interesting and varied technology (virtual machines, JIT compilers, Linux kernel)
Very nice and professional people
Startup environment

ConsLike most startups, under-staffed

Leading edge technology, strong/friendly/professional team

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Azul Systems

ProsLots of toys to play with. It is rare to be able to work with so much cool technology in one place. Managed runtimes, JIT compilers and optimizers, garbage collectors, kernel modules, profilers, etc.

ConsSmaller company, works and feels like early stage internally. Much of the company stuff you'd find in a 200+ person company is not there (HR, process, etc.).
