For this installment of Spotlight on Tech, we’re getting to know our friends at BMC, a company working to “Bring IT to Life” to provide their clients with “the ultimate competitive advantage.” How does BMC do this? Their platform simplifies and automates IT processes, improves decision-making, and orchestrates workflow across cloud, virtual, distributed, and mainframe resources.
Recognized as the leader in Business Service Management, BMC offers a comprehensive approach and unified platform that helps IT organizations cut cost, reduce risk and drive business profit.
Currently home to 38 employees in their Vancouver office, BMC has a team of more than 6,500 employees worldwide. “Our office is located in the picturesque south Granville area of the city and our employees enjoy an open and collaborative work environment,” said BMC.
Here are some other great things BMC had to say about their culture, their team and their goals for the coming year:
Culture: We are multicultural. We like to work, play, and repeat! We celebrate major milestones – personal and professional, and host numerous social events including BBQs, costume parties, potlucks, annual parties and dear beer with karaoke. We run for important causes and participate in the Terry Fox Run and the Vancouver Sun Run.
Leadership Team: Our leadership team is a team of cool professionals who often walk around the office offering snacks from Trader Joe’s. They work with individuals to understand their strengths and passion and try to direct their energy in the right direction. All members of the team also receive training support and have the ability to attend various relevant events and meetups.
The hard work of our team is what led to an acquisition by BMC. Most of that original team is still here 1.5 years later and work hard to build future BMC products. The Vancouver office has also been chosen as the Canadian R&D site, and is continuing to grow.
Our employees brag about the open work environment with straight, easy communication, team building activities, and convenient office location (it’s transit-friendly, includes free parking, and has good food joints just minutes away)
We are currently working on a new and exciting set of products that are central to BMC’s future success. New team members will be working on this product set as well, giving our team even more exciting things to brag about!
We are people looking for MORE PEOPLE! We’re on the lookout for people who are serious: PhDs, MBAs, Harvard Grads; or humorous: people who like to hike, craft beer connoisseurs, Doctor Who fans; or a bit of both.
Most importantly, we’re looking for people who will work with excellence and determination towards the common goals and objectives of the team.
