It's all about teamwork

"I help make IT nerds smarter," says F5 candidate experience manager, Alison who works on the certification process, from initial registration to final certificate. Her team in Seattle is small and nimble - and that's just the way she likes it. "The scrappy, can-do attitude of our tiny team reminds me of being a start-up," she says "but with the support of a larger organization. It's the best of both worlds. The people here are some of the smartest, nicest, funniest and passionate people I've worked with in technology," she says. "And yet, on top of that, they're balanced. We're all on the same team and we all are proud to be part of that team."

The F5 community is one where people build something together, including great relationships. F5's competitors are tough, smart,and fast, so they need people united in a common goal. Their teams are not in competition. They are ambitious, yes, but F5 celebrates successes and is inspired by one another. Reaching the mountain top means you have to scale the mountain. F5ers are proud, ambitious, and collaborative. They know technology is a disruptive industry and staying ahead of the curve means taking action and solving problems before they become problems.

F5 is a big company with a small-company vibe

At F5, they've kept their fighting spirit and their sense of community. This way of working is critical to their roadmap and ideation process. They're mighty - and it shows.
