Looking for a job after graduation? Good news: Citrix ShareFile, voted one of the Best Places to Work in the Triangle, is hiring entry-level sales representatives in Raleigh, NC!
I know what you’re thinking—you probably didn’t go to college to become a salesperson. Let me explain why you’re going to love this job. We think of sales differently.
The sales philosophy of ShareFile stems from our mission to raise the bar for service in the field of technology. We reach out to help people learn about ShareFile knowing that in just a few years ShareFile has been hugely beneficial to over 9,000,000 people around the world. Our software is easy to use, offers more features than any other product in the market place, and is priced so reasonably that it pays for itself within days. Our goal with each sales call is to determine whether the person we are speaking with could benefit from ShareFile. If the answer is yes, we’ve made a sale. If no, we move on to the next opportunity.
The tremendous growth ShareFile has experienced since our acquisition by Citrix begs the question, “How does a fairly small startup handle rapid expansion effectively and efficiently?”
Ashton Smith, Project Manager on the Facilities and Operations team, describes the requirements for successful growth in this way, “I think flexibility to deal with changes and preparedness are important. After all, things are changing all the time, and it’s important to keep a cool head in those situations. But I think the most important requirement is good communication skills. A team like this is so dependent on each member that it’s critical for us to keep open lines of communication – and for people to be willing to step up and lend a hand when it’s needed.”
As you know, we’ve just begun a new year, and with the new year come new resolutions. One of the top resolutions many people make is to begin a new job or career. If your resolution is to work for an exciting, growing company in 2013, we’ve got great news—Citrix ShareFile is hiring!
You may be wondering what makes Citrix ShareFile such a great place to work. The reasons are numerous, but here are the top five why you should consider joining our rapidly growing team:
New office space. Since Citrix is creating 337 new jobs in Raleigh in the coming years, there needs to be a place to house all of the new employees! The new 130,000-square-foot facility will be located in the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh and will include amenities to inspire creativity and healthy lifestyles, such as a yoga studio, indoor/outdoor dining and a rooftop garden.
We are quickly approaching the one-year mark of the Citrix acquisition. This time last year, we were announcing for the very first time that ShareFile was acquired by Citrix Systems. We are excited to be a part of the Citrix family and have enjoyed being a part of an even larger team that spans worldwide. As I was thinking about where we were this time last year, I am amazed to see how things have changed in just one short year. Take a look at some of these reflections:
The number of employees: 93 in October 2011; 189 employees in October 2012
The size of our office: 15,531 sq. ft. in October of 2011; 46,528 sq. ft. in October of 2012
The number of pizzas at company meetings: 40 pizzas in October 2011; 70 pizzas in October 2012
There’s been a lot of exciting news at Citrix ShareFile lately. We’re moving into a brand new space in downtown Raleigh next year and we were recently named one of the 2012 best places to work by the Triangle Business Journal. If you’re interested in being part of the excitement, you’re in luck because we’re hiring! Thanks to the Job Development Investment Grant, ShareFile plans to create 337 jobs over the next several years.
In June, Gov. Bev Perdue announced that, through the Job Development Investment Grant, Citrix ShareFile will create 337 jobs and invest $12.5 million in North Carolina. With such explosive growth of employees to come, we need to move our office facilities to a new space that can accommodate the influx of staff. Over the next five years, we are looking to grow our employee base to more than double what it currently is.
There has been lots of chatter about where the new office location will be, but the wait is finally over. The new facility (just announced today) will be located in a space in the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh. The 130,000 square-foot facility will retain the essence of the original warehouse environment while being outfitted with the latest technology to facilitate collaboration and teamwork.
