Fresh off the heels of its recent acquisition, Dell Compellent (previously Compellent Technologies) will hire more than 100 positions immediately, with plans to expand even further over the next twelve months. Nearly all the positions will be based in the Eden Prairie office, the original location of Compellent.
Dell Compellent provides highly-virtualized storage solutions with advanced data management features, including automated tiering and thin provisioning, for enterprise and cloud-computing environments. The company is hiring in nearly every area of the organization including engineering, services & support, manufacturing & quality, marketing, sales, sales operations and technical solutions.
This is a unique growth push for Compellent. Historically, the organization reports that 65% of all hires were referral-based. Its recent, rapid expansion is being kicked off with its first Career Fair this weekend at the Sofitel Minneapolis Hotel. “We’re extremely excited to be expanding locally and hiring so many positions,” said Dell Compellent president Phil Soran. “This is a great step forward for technology jobs in Minnesota.”
