“Nimble Storage has accomplished a lot since its inception in 2008. Most notably, in the past calendar year, we’ve launched a successful IPO and the industry’s first Adaptive Flash platform. We recognize that none of these feats would be possible without the hard work and dedication of our employees. It is an honor to be selected as one of the Bay Area’s Top Workplaces for the second straight year, but an even greater honor that our employees hold the company in such high regard and feel that they have been equally valued by our management team.”
