I am a Software Engineer with over 15 years of experience in storage technologies and file systems and I recently joined Avere Systems. I volunteered to share why I made this decision, as it may help others considering a similar move. Avere is hiring talent right now, so maybe, if you haven't considered Avere, you should.

Why We Like Working at Avere

We’re smiling at our desks today. Avere Systems has been named a Pittsburgh Top Work Place in 2014. Congratulations to all the companies named to the list.
