What Our Employees Say
“First and foremost, the Percona people keep me with the company. The second reason to stay with Percona is technology. I'm very confident in the technology and how it's being pursued. The third one is management. I am very confident in our CEO’s vision. So in a way, Percona is the golden trifecta: it has great people, good tech and management with a proper vision. Percona has taught me how a company can be distributed and still function as a whole, have an identity and an esprit de corps. Though I’ve worked remotely, that was with companies that were essentially a brick and mortar company. Percona works hard at maintaining an identity that people can use to help define their career. I don’t feel I am just a remote consultant; I feel I am an employee of Percona.”
Tim Sharp, Technical Account Manager
“Percona is a wonderful company, full of amazingly supportive and smart people! Everyone’s ideas are valued, and listened to. I used to work for a larger company and the biggest difference is that at Percona everyone’s voice is heard, and it doesn’t matter how “high” or “low” you are on the totem pole. All opinions are valued, regardless of the titles. Percona is constantly changing, but in a good way. Each Perconian wants to make Percona the best it can be, and changes are embraced instead of instantly rejected.”
Jamie Rosemary, Operations Coordinator
“Percona is full of wonderful & talented people, and you'll be amazed how helpful people can be here. New hires can expect to find a lot of talent, much collaboration and openness at Percona.”
Marcos Albe, Support Engineer, AMER Regional Manager
“Percona is a great opportunity to learn new things. Our new hires value great teamwork, meeting colleagues that are always willing to help and a very open company. In Percona you’ll have access to the things that you won’t see available to employees in most of the companies out there, so take advantage of it and enjoy it to keep growing personally and professionally.”
Miguel Angel Nieto, Support Engineer, EMEA Regional Manager
“Percona is a wonderful, ever-changing company. I would describe things as we describe the weather back home in Arkansas: if you don’t like it….wait until tomorrow because it will be different! So “significant” and “exciting” would be how I describe these changes.”
Christopher Jeffus, Managing Consultant
“The people and the passion are what make Percona special. I have the incredibly good fortune of working with a terrific group of folks. I would say my accomplishments in the past two years are a result of strong working relationships with others.”
Ann Schlemmer, Senior Director of Consulting
“For the first time in my life, I've found something that feels like a vocation. This may sound ambiguous (and it certainly is), but Percona almost can't be called a job to me. It has changed me and turned my life around so completely, it is literally part of my identity currently. The fact that I've been given the opportunity to work with and learn from my own amazing team, as well as working closely with people who are essentially the very best at what they do as part of both Professional Services and Sales... is priceless to me.”
Liz van Dijk, Director of Technical Account Management
