What Our Team Members Say

“Percona has definitely become more than just another Job for me. The company's integrity and the amazing people I am fortunate to work with give me a purpose and inspiration I've been missing so far. I cannot think of one person at Percona that is not brilliant, helpful and always willing to go the extra mile for its teammates and the company. Working here has allowed me to grow both professionally and personally and earned me friends for life. I am not exaggerating when I say that Percona has become family in some way. I am thankful for the opportunity to work here everyday.”

Ramona Gerum - Customer Success Representative

“If you think about how you should treat your family, friends and even yourself, it will be clear that everything is a matter of time. Time is crucial in everything, our life is totally the timing process. The job is part of our life, because basically we have some needs. How much time you have lost in a crowded subway or in heavy traffic jam? The bad thing is that, there will be no extra drink for lost time :) Work should not distract us from life, but should be the fun part of our life. With our regular city life we have learnt how to hate mornings and did not see the shining sun near us. But why? Because your life depends on location. But how about to move to mountains to cook some kebabs to look at sun and think differently? Currently with Percona I have this chance and I did it.”

Shahriyar Rzayev - QA Engineer

“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 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, Principal Technical Services Engineer

“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, Vice President of Customer Success

“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, Vice President of Business Services
