We are delighted to announce that NetApp will be sponsoring our upcoming Ireland Hybrid STEM Careers Event on Wednesday 12th October 2022!

Ahead of the event, we caught up with the team at NetApp to discover more about the company, the exciting graduate opportunities they have available, and why they are passionate about women in STEM.

Who is NetApp?  – an introduction to the company.

“We’re shaping the future of the cloud – and you could be a part of it. NetApp is opening a new International HQ in Cork, Ireland, and we are looking for new hires to help us continue to redefine digital transformation.

“At NetApp, our culture is focused on Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging. We believe that a diverse group of people working together increases productivity, creativity, and produces a positive ambiance in the workplace. ‘’We are one team, one NetApp powered by together.’’

“NetApp is here to break the stereotypes and barriers regarding women in our society, by creating job opportunities for them to showcase their problem solving, critical thinking and innovative skills. We could not think of any other place than STEM Women to help us embark on this journey on creating a brighter future for women.”
