Actifio Named One of the Best Places for Young Professionals to Build Careers in 2016
Wealthfront recently announced its fourth annual list of US mid-sized technology companies with momentum and highlighted Actifio, the copy data virtualization company, as one of the best companies for young professionals to build their careers at in 2016. This recognition comes as Actifio continues to rapidly expand the workforce at its Massachusetts headquarters and around the world to keep up with increasing demand from customers and partners focused on modernizing their approaches to data management.
As Actifio continues to grow and add world-class engineering, sales and marketing talent, the company has been actively recruiting from local universities and technology meet-ups by creating an energetic company culture that focuses on innovation, collaboration and accountability. The company currently has more than 400 employees worldwide.
“Establishing copy data virtualization as an exciting new category of enterprise technology has demanded people who can innovate, execute, and learn fast,” said Ash Ashutosh, Actifio Founder and CEO. “These values are embedded in our culture now, and together with our high growth environment, make Actifio a great place to work for young people who aspire to have an impact on the world.”
Actifio is one of only nine Boston area companies to be included in this year’s list of 136 total companies, up 30 from last year’s 106 total. The full list of 2016 companies can be viewed here. To qualify for the Wealthfront career-launching list a company must currently have revenues between $20 million and $300 million and be on a trajectory to grow at a rate in excess of 50% over at least the next four years. The list of top companies was built by surveying the partners of the following 16 venture capital firms: Accel Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, Benchmark, DAG Ventures, Dragoneer, Greylock Partners, Index Ventures, Lightspeed, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Matrix Partners, Redpoint Ventures, Ribbit Capital, Sequoia Capital, the Social + Capital Partnership, Spark Capital and TCV.
Actifio virtualizes the data that’s the lifeblood of businesses in more than 30 countries around the world. Its Virtual Data PipelineTM technology enables businesses to protect, access, and move their data faster, more efficiently, and more simply by decoupling data from physical storage, much the same way a hypervisor decouples compute from physical servers. For enterprise-class backup modernization, self-serve instant data access, or service provider business transformation, Actifio is the first and only choice for radically simple copy data virtualization.
