An Insider’s Glimpse into Citrix Online

Citrix Online, Career Partner with UCSB, gave me a tour of their campus and I got some great pics and received information just for Gauchos.

First, for those of you who aren’t familiar with Citrix Online, let me give you a little background. Founded in 1997 by a UCSB professor and two graduate students, Citrix Online is the online services division of Citrix Systems, Inc. Citrix Online offers web-based, support, and collaboration software and services. Its products are GoToAssist, GoToMeeting, GoToMyPC, GoToTraining, GoToWebinar, Podio, and HiDef Corporate. Every month, more than 17,000 new customers start using Citrix GoTo cloud services to work from anywhere with anyone – using their remote-connectivity and online collaboration solutions to save time, get more done and connect to others around the world.

Now, onto some more good stuff. Citrix Online is located in Goleta out by the Butterfly Preserve. In fact, part of the Butterfly Preserve is on their campus so during your lunch break you can go see the beautiful monarch butterflies, if you’re into that kind of stuff. Speaking of lunch, Citrix Online has a delicious cafeteria and a kitchen area in each building filled with beverages, coffee and snacks! They also have a full gym that’s open 24 hours to their employees and an outdoor basketball court! Did I mention that you can bring your dog to work too? I mean c’mon, how cool is that?

They’re offices are set up in a collaborative style format where you can see the people you’re working with and you get the opportunity to work with employees at all different levels. So this means the entry-level people aren’t all just grouped together; you get to learn from mid level and senior managers. And, in their sales area, you can walk into a red phone booth at anytime to hear a live sales call in action.

How do you go about getting a job at Citrix Online? Well you can see most of their open positions on GauchoLink and on the career section of their website. You can also meet their recruiters at the Career Fairs and Information Sessions. They hire for both technical and non-technical positions and offer some great internship opportunities
