Acronis sets the standard for hybrid cloud data protection through its backup, disaster recovery, and secure file sync and share solutions. Powered by the Acronis AnyData Engine and set apart by its image technology, Acronis delivers easy, complete and affordable data protection of all files, applications and operating systems across any environment—virtual, physical, cloud and mobile. Founded in 2003, Acronis protects the data of over 5 million consumers and 500,000 businesses in over 145 countries. With more than 100 patents, Acronis' products have been named best product of the year, and cover a range of features, including migration, cloning and replication. Today, Acronis' solutions are available worldwide through a global network of service providers, distributors and cloud resellers.
At Acronis, people get the chance to create world class products that will be used by tens or even hundreds of millions of people around the world – from America to Asia. Our products currently protect more than 5,000 petabytes of data! And we are just getting started, as the amount of data in the world is growing exponentially. That's why we hire talented engineers who are able to invent new technologies.
Acronis is always evolving and growing. We are changing our approach and processes in R&D to be even more active and innovative than ever before. Last year, we launched a brand new Acronis Lab in Singapore, and currently the company is working on developing several exciting new products.
The world is changing. Acronis is changing too. We have moved into a new hybrid cloud architecture — a new way of managing and a new way of protecting digital data. Data protection is no longer device-centric or focused on single computers, servers or mobile phones. Now, it’s all about organizational units, families, and networks.
Data backup is no longer enough to ensure continuous data protection and availability. Because data is everywhere — in our computers, mobile phones, the cloud — our mission is to empower people by providing them with new technology and enabling them to monitor, control, and protect the data without which their lives could be brought to a halt.
Acronis is a hyper growth high tech company, with its own R&D centers, technology labs and an ambitious product development roadmap. By understanding our customer needs today, we develop technology for tomorrow.
Acronis continues to develop award-winning data protection products, making us a market leader in the industry and receiving valuable recognition from consumers, corporate users and technology analysts. To maintain this pace, we look for likeminded and goal oriented people to join our team.
Acronis takes pride in its rapid innovation cycle. The new features developed using Go, Python, Angular, Docker, etc., have a heavy focus on advancing Acronis product suites towards Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Intelligent Storage Algorithms, Advanced Security, and Encryption.
Working for Acronis, you’ll get a chance to create and support world-class products that will be used by millions of people around the world, every day. Acronis already protects over 5,000 petabytes of data, and it's a grain of sand, by comparison, to the growing amount of data in the world today. That is why we need gifted engineers, software designers, sales people, marketers and support personnel to rapidly develop new products and bring them to the market in order to protect the digital world of the future.
I have been working at Acronis full-time (More than 3 years)
There is a lot of growth potential here at Acronis. It doesn't happen overnight, but many of those who continue to work hard and deliver results are given more responsibilities and opportunities.
Each position has an individual contributor aspect (even at higher levels) which means you must be hands on and willing to do a lot of work yourself. Due to the size and nature of the company, most roles cover multiple areas of their department and business. This gives you more ownership of the work, career growth, and development. It also means you can see the impact of your work and know that you were the person who delivered (or helped) those results.
Another plus is that Acronis is worldwide, which allows you to work with different people, cultures, and regions.
In all, Acronis has given me so much over the last 3 + years - a career, a family, long lasting relationships, and unforgettable memories.
Acronis is not for everyone because it is a fast-paced environment with higher than average workloads and responsibilities. There also have been some changes in management that have caused a little turbulence throughout the years here. But if you can manage the changes, fast pace and heavy workload, Acronis will benefit you so much.
The work can be challenging and stressful, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy :-)
Advice to Management
Keep doing the frequent Global All-Hands meetings with the CEO, like we have the past year or so. The transparency on the vision and strategy, to all levels of the organization keeps people motivated and unified.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Acronis (Burlington, MA) in March 2017.
I was not able to apply online because their system was run out and I asked my friend to pass my resume to HR. It was in March. And I've heard back from HR couple days after to schedule my first phone screening. She was very professional at first and it was a quick call. She then reached out to schedule my second phone screening just to let me know that Finance Dep is still thinking what they really need. Nice, right? She was very friendly and easy going so the interviews were pretty much casual. Although, I asked about the next step and she said she would get back once Accounting manager returned from his vacation. Well, I waited for 3-4 weeks and emailed her again about my status (May month). She never gets back to me even I see they are still looking a couple of Accounting positions and diff recruiters offering me those positions !!! Speechless.... July month :) Very professional, isn't it?
I decided to write down this review right after some recruiter called me again and gave me the name of that company....
