Why you want to work there

This San Jose, Calif., developer of software-defined enterprise cloud technologies values its IT employees as advisers, partners and collaborators. Rather than being asked to police corporate standards, IT is called upon to support disruptive technologies and try them out with teams throughout the company. Business roles aren't rigidly defined. For example, Nutanix doesn't have a dedicated team to run AV equipment during companywide meetings, so IT stepped up and team members learned about conferencing technologies to support events. Employees are kept apprised of technology changes upstream, allowing them to adapt quickly, and they get to meet regularly with managers to discuss their career options.
