Quantum Careers & Info

Current CEO: Jamie Lerner

Status: Active

Quantum Corporation was founded in 1980 and launched its success with the sale of hard drives. In 1986, it began competing with other hard drive manufacturers in the SCSI market. Due to the incredibly high demand of its products, many Quantum careers were redirected to Japan when they signed an agreement in 1993 to have all their disk products produced in factories owned by Matsushita.

Quantum underwent transformation in 1994 when it purchased DEC data storage for a price of $348 million, which granted access to the streaming tape system. Since many businesses and individuals were worried about Y2K and the possibilities of data loss, sales skyrocketed in the later part of the 90s, which resulted in the decision to split the company into two parts. One sold DLT products while the other split off to sell hard drives.

In 2001, after feeling the squeeze of the hard drive market competition, Quantum corporation sold their hard drive division to Maxtor, which officially took effect on April 1st, 2001. Maxtor was acquired by Seagate in December, 2005. In 2006, Quantum did purchase Advanced Digital Information Corporation, known as ADIC, for approximately $770 million.

Currently, over 2,000 people worldwide are working at Quantum Corporation. Products are sold through approximately 20 different distributors at over 5,000 resellers. They operate on a global basis in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America. The large product makeup includes disk backup, virtual machine backup, data sharing and archiving, tape libraries and standalone devices and media. Their headquarters is located in San Jose, CA and at the end of the 2011 fiscal year, which ended March 31st, 2011, revenue was reported at $672 million.

Quantum's goal is to aid global specialists with all areas of backup, recovery and archiving of data to protect and retain sensitive and critical information. One solution is not always enough to ensure that the data remains intact, and as a result, the company dedicates efforts to combing a mixture of tape, disk and replication for optimal results and security.

The Quantum culture mission is to use innovative and creative thinking from skilled professionals to exceed expectations and reach the next level as a global leader in backup and storage solutions. Quantum benefits include working for a top global company, the ability to work in a variety of positions suited for the skill set and locations all over the globe including Colorado, Washington, New York and California in the United States and Northampton, UK.
