The Elevator Pitch: Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

You share a passion for crafting software that has a significant impact for the world and future of cloud computing. You love solving problems and learning new things and are looking for a company that helps enable those ideas. Technologies come and go, but that excites you because of the endless possibilities it creates. You are looking for an opportunity to work for a company whose software is utilized by every Fortune 500 company and significantly impacts every industry. You want to be a part of a collaborative environment whose teams care about the product they are creating, how they create it, and the impact it has on customers’ business objectives.

VMware Carbon Black has established itself as a leader in the endpoint security space. The product portfolio includes the rapidly growing Carbon Black Cloud (CBC) platform that delivers next-generation endpoint protection capabilities from the cloud.
