EdgeConneX – Why Work For Us?


The EdgeConneX Internet of Everywhere
EdgeConneX defines the Internet of Everywhere as bringing content to consumers locally, around the world. As Internet content grows, so does EdgeConneX and our facilities enable the fastest and most secure content delivery available - Everywhere. 

With an eye for innovation and a drive to deliver unsurpassed digital content experiences, EdgeConneX was born.

Edge Services provide Space, Power & Connectivity to deliver digital content like never before. With EdgeConneX, data delivery is optimized by placing Edge Data Centers®, Edge Small Cells and Edge PoPs® at the most critical locations—as close as possible to the end user’s point of access. With our services, digital content can be delivered with enhanced performance and lower latency to any device, anywhere.

We maintain that innovation is possible only when a company moves as fast as the technology driving data today. At EdgeConneX, we’re keeping pace. Since late 2013, we have built 23 Edge Data Centers® across the US, creating a new Edge of the Internet. EdgeConneX moved the Internet to where it is most needed, yet has never existed before – into local markets across the country and soon the globe. We recognize that insatiable demand for content continues to swell each day and that quality delivery of this content requires an Internet of Everywhere mentality. In 2016, EdgeConneX plans to add several new Edge Data Centers abroad, beginning with one in Amsterdam. These efforts represent our continued commitment to satisfy the global appetite for latency sensitive and bandwidth intensive content.

In addition to our rapidly growing portfolio of Edge Data Centers, EdgeConneX has also deployed more than 3,000 national locations across our Edge Wireless and Edge Pop portfolio. We manage a proprietary database of 4 million buildings, 14 million businesses and 200,000 cell towers that we collectively use in partnership with our customers to determine the most optimal site for our next build.

EdgeConneX focuses on continuous innovation, with an emphasis on customer service. As one example, our patented EdgeOS® is a next generation data center operating system, allowing a single, secure view into your infrastructure across our global footprint.

The need for the Edge has arrived and EdgeConneX has taken the leadership position in delivering it. We are building The Internet of Everywhere and you can find it on any device, anywhere, anytime.

At EdgeConneX we have taken the view that it’s not enough just to know what we do, but also what the industry is doing and why – what are others saying and what are end-users demanding? Edge Insights offers: clear views of industry trends and issues from independent world-renowned bloggers and industry leaders; the latest news from a vast array of leading media organizations; links to social media and its unlimited base of opinions and commentary from end-users; and detailed case studies covering each of our edge services. We believe that this forum will provide a convenient and important source of information that you will find useful on an ongoing basis to stay current on a wide range of technologies, trends, companies and end-user requirements. As this material is intended to keep you abreast of the latest news, we welcome your comments on how to improve it.


Edge Data Centers (EDC) are purpose-built for sophisticated users of space and power to enable the distribution of content at the edge. Our facilities are designed to support extremely high power densities and our simplified per kW pricing is designed to support the needs of the Internet's fastest growing users. Every EDC is capable of 20+kW per rack or cabinet and 600 watts per square foot. Our National operating model and facilities are SOC 2 - Type 2, PCI-DSS and HIPAA certified annually. Remote hands resources are available at all of our EDC locations and we provide a convenient customer workspace that is visible and accessible from the secured white space. All EDC locations also offer fiber diversity, including network, building access, conduit system, and carrier.  Our next generation data center operating system, EdgeOS, was custom built to enable a single secure view into your infrastructure across our national footprint.  In addition to enhanced EDC visibility, our EdgeOS boosts the effectiveness of alarming, monitoring, ticketing, network and capacity management. EdgeConneX customers have 24/7 visibility into their space, power and connectivity to enable their business and end user experience.

At EdgeConneX, we pride ourselves on providing industry-leading sales, support and management services. Consistency is critical to our brand, so we are constantly pushing ourselves to exceed the expectations of both our customers and ourselves. We are founded by an Executive Team with over 100 years of cumulative experience in the communications industry, yet we approach every day with the velocity and passion of a startup.

As we continue to grow, we are seeking diversified and motivated professionals who are ready to keep up with us as we help our customers fulfill the potential of their brands by revolutionizing the way content is experienced by the end user. The services we offer are always on the leading edge of network infrastructure solutions, a responsibility that demands intelligent problem solvers, unique personalities and the ability to adapt to a rapidly changing environment at every turn.

    I worked at EdgeConneX full-time

    Pros

    Very intelligent group of data center operations management. If you got what it takes you should look them up.

    Cons

    As with all companies you are certain to find a few bad eggs in the bunch. Some of the executive management I wonder how they failed their way into these positions.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for certain characters. If you get there, the boys will fill you in. As a whole they are extremely professional and cool people to interact with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EdgeConneX (Denver, CO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    One in-person interview with three different employees. First interview with the HR manager, second interview with head of the Denver office, and final interview with a member of the team I joined. Took an hour total. No tricky questions, were looking for basic knowledge on telecom and the technology field.
