Pure Storage was founded nine years ago with the ambitious goal of revolutionizing the computing infrastructure industry. It’s been quite a ride! Today, we remain a diverse group of trailblazers who take pride in challenging the status quo. We celebrate our differences and bring our unique perspectives together to change the world.

Giving back has always been a core value at Pure. In fact, the Pure Good Foundation – the philanthropic arm of Pure – was uniquely seeded by an employees when the company went public in 2015. 

Today, the Pure Good Foundation has evolved to concentrate its efforts across three areas:

  • Global interest grants. Focused on our core value of teamwork, we fund teams of five or more Pure employees in support of initiatives of their choosing, which include grants to fundraise for other organizations, undertake team-building activities, and/or provide direct community assistance.
  • Hands-on volunteerism. Pure Good pairs Pure’s employees with youth and education-based organizations that are local to where they live and work across the globe.
  • Investing in innovation.Innovation is a core value at Pure, and by extension, the Foundation invests in innovative solutions to solve pressing problems facing youth.

Through volunteerism, support for innovative best practices, and grantmaking, we believe that our investments launch real-life opportunities while building lifelong relationships with tomorrow’s workforce.

    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time (More than a year)


    Culture - this company has an outstanding culture. The company understands that the most important asset they have are the people and they treat them with great respect. I've been with the company a year and have no regrets.
    Compensation/Benefits - the company compensation is very competitive. However, on top of compensation, they offer: free meals, video game room, massage chairs, flexible hours, unlimited vacation, etc...
    Overall a great place to work!


    I really have no negative things to say about the company. It is a fast-paced technology company, so if you aren't looking to work hard, this probably isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a high-energy environment, you will likely have a great time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing the people. Keep the positive culture and don't let politics get in the way of company success.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pure Storage (Mountain View, CA) in September 2018.


    I applied online for the job position. There was one HR phone interview followed by two technical phone screens within ten days. And then the face-to-face interview was conducted at Pure Storage (Mountain View, CA). All calls were set on calendar with proper reminders.

      Situational management question, role-play, etc.

      I enjoyed their office, interaction was quite intellectual and they respected my time.   1 Answer
