Rubrik Named to LinkedIn Top Startups List

Today, we are thrilled to be named to the 2020 LinkedIn Top Startups list, which recognizes the 50 most sought-after companies to work for in the U.S. The list is determined by the actions of over 170 million LinkedIn users and focuses on factors such as employee growth, company and employee engagement, job seeker interest, and the ability to attract top talent. This marks the fourth year in a row that Rubrik has been included on the LinkedIn Top Startups list and reflects our commitment to building an open, rewarding corporate culture. Despite all the challenges this year presented, we’re grateful that the team has come together to successfully transition and support each other. Our goal is to ensure that a sense of community is still front and center by offering open board meetings, learning opportunities, charity events, and more. Even in this remote, distributed environment, we’ve extended our efforts to build Rubrik as a place that excites and challenges all of our employees. Here are some of the biggest highlights: Employee Empowerment: Now more than ever, it is important for teams to stay connected and feel a sense of purpose and belonging.

How ERGs Can Ease the Transition from New Grad to Working Professional

As a recent college graduate, I often find myself comparing life as a student to life as a working professional. In college, there were endless opportunities to connect with other students outside of class—from campus clubs and Greek activities to intramural sports. These opportunities allowed me to master new skills, experiment with different activities, and advance my learning.  Like many universities, Rubrik’s culture also emphasizes the importance of connecting with peers, which is why folks across the globe have started Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Entirely employee-run, ERGs create a collective voice within the company around shared issues that help promote an inclusive, respectful workplace. This environment is especially important for employees new to the workforce who are still trying to learn the ropes of a corporate company.  At Rubrik, we currently have three ERGs: ARC (LGBTQIA+), Adelante! (LatinX), and W@R (Women at Rubrik). Each ERG is organized and led solely by employees—and they’re open to all. Every Rubrik employee is encouraged to join or initiate a new ERG, no matter their passion.  I joined W@R a few months into starting my job. W@R’s mission is to provide a platform committed to fostering diversity, accelerating career growth, and building community within…

Leadership Lab: Melinda Wu on Driving Inclusion in the Workplace

Melinda Wu joined Rubrik in 2015 as the VP of Product Operations. With over 20 years of experience leading supply chains and manufacturing, she is an in-house expert in building and scaling strong teams. I had the chance to sit down with Melinda and chat about the biggest learnings in her career and her approach to building an inclusive workforce. You’re an industry veteran who has worked at leading tech companies like Hewlett Packard and Cisco. Why did you choose to join Rubrik, which at the time was only one year old?   While the business model and technology were compelling, it was the energy and passion of the founders that sealed it for me. Bipul was magnetic. When he described his long-term vision for the company, I knew I wanted to be part of what they were building. What’s one of your proudest moments in your career? I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of amazing people in my career, but I’m most proud of my time here at Rubrik. I joined when the company was roughly 50 people, so helping it grow to a recognized industry leader with over 1,400 employees is extremely rewarding. I’m proud…

Leadership Lab: Mark Smith on Understanding Balance in Business

Mark Smith recently joined Rubrik as EVP of Global Sales and Business Development. He brings over 25 years of experience building high-performance global sales, marketing, and business development teams at companies such as Arista Networks, Infoblox, and NetScreen. He has also been named one of VARBusiness’ Top 100 Executives of the year. At Rubrik, we’re excited for Mark’s expertise, successful track record, and sense of humor. I had a chance to sit down with Mark and chat about what he’s learned throughout his career.   As a sales leader at four highly successful companies, what is the most valuable lesson you’ve learned? I’ve learned that everyone needs to be on the same page and share mutual respect. All teams must pull with the same energy and in the same direction to accomplish great things. Achieving this balance means eliminating the cynics and the passengers who are not pulling their weight. You’ve helped four companies grow from the startup stage to IPO. How does going public shape a company’s progress and innovation? From a sales and marketing perspective, it provides a huge uplift in awareness. The IPO itself is an enormous PR event and has a huge immediate impact. The growth a…

Fireside Chat with Rubrik’s Founders: Our First Three Years

In 2014, a VC and three engineers embarked on founding Rubrik. Three years later, the company has grown at an unprecedented pace. In celebration of Rubrik’s 3rd Birthday, I sat down with each co-founder to learn about their experiences and insights on innovating a previously untapped industry. Bipul Sinha – CEO What has been the biggest surprise about starting a company? Hiring top-quality talent. When we started the company, all of us had careers that involved working with highly-talented people. Part of me expected our network to follow us to Rubrik. I found that this wasn’t the case, as many people who are established in their careers are hesitant to take on the risk of a startup. We have managed to succeed in hiring excellent talent, but it was much more difficult than I expected. How has your mindset on leading a business changed since founding Rubrik? The biggest shift has been in my mental framework. As a VC, you’re a skeptic and are looking at the downside. As a founder, you’re an optimist. I think of human beings as having two states: a state of intellect and a state of will. The VC is in this state of intellect. The founder,…

Leadership Lab: Stephen Alfieris on Scaling Teams and Selling in the Federal Market

I had a chance to chat with Stephen Alfieris, who recently joined Rubrik as VP of Federal. Stephen spent 21 years at EMC in various positions, including DVP Federal. He also served as CEO of IntelliDyne and recently built the Federal Division for ServiceNow. He has developed a specialty in the federal market with a history of building strong sales teams. How did you get into the federal government sector? After 13 years and 8 different positions within EMC, leadership asked me to make a transition from commercial sales to a role leading the federal sector market. Over the next seven and a half years, I learned the market, built a global business, and (along with a few failures) experienced great success. What’s unique about the sales strategy for the federal sector? Federal Government is a highly-regulated market. The Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) defines how government organizations contract with commercial entities for “goods and services.” In addition, there are ever-evolving certification and compliance requirements. There are two primary aspects of the federal sector that make it different from other markets. Congress warrants contracting officers with priorities that often do not align with the priorities of the business owner. Secondly, there are over…
