After reflecting on my career path over the last couple of years, I have come to a decision point where it’s important for me to exercise my passion to it’s fullest potential. Yes, this does involve a job change. I’m happy to announce that I am joining the Nutanix field team as a Sr. Systems Engineer in Atlanta.
This decision really came down to recognizing the importance of humanizing solutions and technology where a positive impact can be realized. If one humanizes a product or service, it can break down barriers and allow a solution to become more relatable. This to me means being on the front lines where you hear and see first hand how technologies can have a true positive impact. So, job title, status, salary, how many twitter followers one has etc.… are not really at the top of the list of importance. Yes, they are all nice to have, but if you are passionate about making a difference then all that stuff really comes by default.
Nutanix is a company that has some of best and brightest minds delivering a true cloud experience to enterprises. The level of innovation around what it means to have an enterprise cloud and how this brings a hybrid approach to being a positive technology steward for your business is extremely important in my book. I also strongly believe in the importance of dynamic design and creative ascetics where simplicity provides a template for what matters to the business. This is a pillar that Nutanix started on and has carried throughout its cycles of innovations, and as some in the industry can attest to isn’t an easy thing to do.
I am also inspired with the Nutanix mantra of staying “Hungry, Humble, and Honest.” The phrase embodies values that I look forward to exemplifying. I also look forward to working with some of my old PernixData friends and making some new ones along the way.
I plan to keep this blog updated with useful nuggets and updates as I move forward in my role.
