- Hewlett Packard Enterprise is racing to become a dominant player in cloud and edge computing.
- To expand its reach, it’s been rolling out new networking products and selectively hiring.
- Here’s how much HPE pays employees, according to visa data from the past year.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise wants to dominate the market for hardware that businesses use to run their data centers and networks – and it’s hiring employees who can help it do so.
Like other enterprise tech giants, HPE is seeing rising demand for such equipment. The firm is specifically focused on dominating edge computing, in which data processing is located physically closer to companies’ data centers or connected devices such as smart cars, and developing new hardware to edge out competitors such as Cisco and Juniper Networks.
To see what HPE pays newly hired workers, Insider analyzed data on approved H-1B visas published by the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification. This data was drawn from 471 approved visas for HPE workers hired in the past 12 months.
While the data has some caveats, it provides a rare glimpse into the salaries of engineers, researchers, salespeople, and managers at HPE. The data only includes foreign workers, and it documents base pay instead of total compensation, which can include bonuses or stock. In some instances, the data contains salary ranges instead of exact figures.
An HPE spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
