10. Non-geeks need not apply:
Just because you have no idea what a LAMP stack is doesn't mean there isn't a place for you at RightScale. We like smart marketers and account managers from many backgrounds, too. But come ready to quickly learn our product and technology.
9. All work and no play:
We acknowledge that kiteboarding, fine dining and flying planes with our coworkers can be challenging, but we make the best of it so we can get back to our cubes ASAP.
8. Strict dress code:
We're not required to wear our blue RightScale T-shirts, we just like to. Showing up in a suit blatantly screams that you are here for an interview — or that it's Laundry Day.
7. Long hours:
We don’t believe that working longer equates to delivering a better product, but we are committed to hitting our release dates and other deadlines and will adopt whatever process or non-process it takes to get the job done. Ever seen a finance department scrum?
6. The commute sucks:
"Dude, traffic was crazy today. My wife sideswiped me in the hallway and I was nearly taken out by my two-year-old. After 30 seconds I finally made it to my home office."
5. No such thing as a free lunch:
Catered lunch on RightScale every Monday makes starting the week a little easier.
4. It's so serious:
Really? Have you met our inside sales reps? The truth is that we take our work — but not ourselves — seriously. Another thing we take seriously is giving back to our communities through investing sweat equity. Watching software engineers try to plant a tree = priceless.
3. Limited benefits:
No one here is complaining about our three weeks of PTO, employer-paid health insurance premiums and stock options.
2. Management doesn't have a clue:
Recognition as a cloud computing leader by industry media and three rounds of VC funding (not to mention lots of customer love) shows strong validation of our management team. Plus, they're human. Which is helpful when you have too much fun at a company event and overshare with the CEO about your previous night's hookup.
1. You're just a number:
We aren't robots at RightScale, so if mastering menial tasks and performing the same role day in and day out is for you, we're not. But if you're motivated, that mobile app you built in your spare time might just make the product roadmap. Innovative? Creative? Brilliant? Bring it.
