Tintri 2Q2015

Tintri switched to a February-based fiscal year so we just finished the second quarter of fiscal 2015. We had the last all-hands meeting in our old office, and are scheduled to move on August 15th to our new location (just two buildings away, still on Ravendale Drive in Mountain View.)

I can't talk financials (but they're in good shape) but I can highlight our growth in people! Currently we're at 283 people, of which 121 are new this year. Our goal is to get to around 340 by the end of the year. (It's been mind-boggling: at the end of 2011 we were still only at 52.)

About 35% are in engineering and 40% in sales. We're still hiring aggressively, so please let me know if you or somebody you know are interested in joining a great pre-IPO company! We're looking for people with experience in storage, virtualization, and "the cloud"--- but have also hired great people outside those areas too.

Tintri is a platinum sponsor at VMworld US this year; I'll be out working the booth at the end of the month.

ETA: Good coverage from Forbes: Tintri's 140% Growth Threatens Shrinking NetApp. Ken also mentions we are getting 70% gross margins. A few other tidbits: 65% of revenue is US, 35% rest of world; and we have 5 customers in the top 15 Fortune 500 companies.
