We're Hiring.

Formation is revolutionizing enterprise storage. So if you're crazy about tech innovation and super-sized challenges, this is the place.

An Extraordinary Mission Takes an Extraordinary Team

When you want to blow something up, you don’t send in the repair crew. And that’s our mission: to blow up the paradigm of enterprise storage and rebuild it from scratch.

So our team at Formation Data Systems is full of passionate, visionary risk takers. Sure, we’ve got the skills—from storage and web applications to SaaS and advanced research. But we’re intent on using them for something very different. We’re not about incremental improvement—not to the old way of doing things.

In technology, you hear a lot about disruption. Well, disruption is just what we do while the morning coffee brews. And if we ruffle a few feathers along the way, so be it. That’s what revolutions do. And that’s what the FormationOne™ Dynamic Storage Platform is—a revolution. And a revelation.

Tablestakes

When you work at Formation, you’ll be working alongside the best and brightest in the storage industry in a high-energy, yet casual work environment. And you’ll also receive awesome benefits and perks:

  • Free lunch and free parking and fully stocked kitchens with lots of snacks and drinks (and kegs of delicious craft microbrews!)
  • Friday Funday – 4:00 pm cocktail hour where we share a libations and conversations and the occasional Nerf gun competition
  • Generous pre-IPO equity grants, 401K program
  • First rate medical, dental, vision and Employee Assistance Program
  • Subsidized gym membership, Wellness Program and a FitBit Flex to keep you on top of your fitness goals
  • Local and national corporate discounts
  • Pre-tax health care, dependent care and commuter benefits (FSA)
  • Unlimited paid time off

The Really Good Stuff

Revolutionaries who hate the phrase “that’s how we’ve always done it” founded Formation. Does that sound like you? Then listen up.

We set out to modernize legacy storage by throwing conventional wisdom to the wind. So if you’re endlessly curious, like solving complex problems, and have the chops to do it, you’ll fit right in here.

We’re determined to have the happiest customers on the planet. That means we’ll always go the extra mile. And no politics or hierarchical BS, just empowered team members who are extremely passionate about what they do. The best idea wins. Period.

The days of traditional enterprise storage are numbered. We’re going to blow it up. What could be more fun?
