Boulder, CO,US

At Splunk, we believe making machine data accessible, valuable, and usable is essential to creating inclusive products for our customers. Accessible design in our physical world benefits everyone; we’ve all used sidewalk cutouts or sent text messages. We’re bringing that same philosophy into our digital products by making digital accessibility a priority at Splunk.

As we move towards cloud-first, it’s crucial to consider all customers in our product suite, including those with permanent, temporary, and situational disabilities. By not considering digital accessibility, we prevent professionals with disabilities from becoming advocates of Splunk.
