Philanthropy

The Pure Good Foundation was established in 2015, via a vote from employees, to invest in our communities and to ensure that there would be support for efforts made in projects aligned with improving the lives of those where we live and work.

People

Our goal is to embed inclusive practices into all key talent processes, engaging our leaders and employees as role models and drivers of equality and continuing to make sure our culture remains open to new voices and thoughts.

Inclusion & Diversity at Pure

Our continued ability to innovate requires hiring and supporting  talented individuals offering their best ideas. So we’re focused on embedding practices of equality and inclusion in everything we do. For us, equality isn’t a separate function – it’s essential to our success.

Pure Equality ensures we are a diverse and inclusive company,  providing equal opportunity for all to thrive, contribute, and innovate. We celebrate diversity and inclusion at Pure Storage through Pure Equality organizations for women, LGBTQ+, young professionals, individuals of color, veterans, and employees with differing abilities.

"In the five years I've been with Pure Storage, diversity has changed from something we do to something we embody as a company."

In the five years I've been with Pure Storage, diversity has changed from something we do to something we embody as a company. Whenever I think of its impact on myself, I think of how helpful folks were when I came out, and how we worked through those questions and worries of mine on a one-on-one basis. We did diversity. Now I'm happy to see we’re making real efforts toward embodying this within Pure by making those assurances I received available for all LGBTQ+ Puritans.

"It wasn't until a few of my team's solutions passed rigorous legal and technical checkpoints to end up as a patent application that I thought, 'Wow! Yeah! I'm an inventor!'"

It wasn't until a few of my team's solutions passed rigorous legal and technical checkpoints to end up as a patent application that I thought, "Wow! Yeah! I'm an inventor!"

That inventive mood is contagious around here. I've been so impressed with our Legal team, which supports and encourages innovation from all over the company – every background and every type of inventor.

"Throughout my career, I have worn many hats — from Technical Support Engineer, Customer Training, Sales Engineer, IT and Quality Assurance."

I have been a Puritan for six years and helped start both the FlashArray and FlashBlade QA teams. I moved to Silicon Valley 19 years ago to get lost in the world of technology startups. Many long days, sleepless nights, persistence and constantly changing technologies have helped me get where I am today.  Throughout my career, I have worn many hats — from Technical Support Engineer, Customer Training, Sales Engineer, IT and Quality Assurance.
