At SolarWinds, we are a people-first company. Our purpose is to enrich the lives of the people we serve—including our employees, customers, shareholders, Partners, and communities. It is our People Team’s mission to Attract, Engage, Reward, Nurture, and Retain Solarians to make SolarWinds a Desired Place to Work.
In the last year, SolarWinds again achieved the No. 1 ranking in Network Management Software market share by leading industry analyst firm, IDC
. In 2021, we hired over 800 new Solarians globally, making one-third of the company new employees, and we look forward to growing in 2022 with the same success. We were also awarded HRO Today's 2021 HR Team of the Year Award in APAC. We’re proud to be recognized for our work in this area and are excited about the many programs we’re working on that support the Solarian experience.
One of the new initiatives we’re particularly excited about is our Global Intern Program. The program gives us a chance to ideate, energize, and innovate with students early in their career while giving back to our alma maters and other institutions in our communities.
As we continue our search for candidates based on their attitude, competence, and commitment, we’ve seen universities move their recruitment and engagement events to virtual platforms. This past fall, we had the opportunity to test this new format with our recruiting team and executives at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. Students had the opportunity to speak with recruiters one-on-one or engage with our team through group sessions. Both teams were impressed with how well the virtual format worked, and we were able to connect with over 50 students during the event.
SolarWinds CEO and Global Intern Program executive sponsor, Sudhakar Ramakrishna, highlighted, “Interns and University relations are a great way for us to identify talent, proliferate our values, and create stronger communities.”
Due to the success and positive feedback, our University Relations Recruiting team is excited to continue its involvement in virtual recruitment events into 2022 with the following engagements:
- February 24: University of Texas- Austin, Communications Career Expo
- March 2: Huston-Tillotson University, Spring Career Fair
- March 28-April 1: Jagiellonian University- Spring 2022 Career Fair
- April 5-6: AGH Job Fair
- April 12: iKariéra Job Fair-Brno
It’s our mission to give back to our communities and we look forward, to doing so while hiring students early in their careers to develop a more diverse and inclusive SolarWinds.
Interested students can find details for participating in these scheduled engagements with their respective institutions. A list of all internship opportunities at SolarWinds can also be found on our Global Internship page
