Location

Texas
Many out-of-state candidates ask about life in Texas. First off, people don’t say “y’all” all the time, though it is pretty fun to say. Texas Pride is real but not in a pretentious way, and football is taken seriously—very seriously! The steaks are amazing, and if you like Mexican food, you’ll be in heaven. Yes, you can drive for hours and still be in the same state, but Texas provides a variety of landscape between the northern and southern parts of the state; in Texas, you really can have it all.

San Antonio
Businesses and the economy in San Antonio are continuing to grow, and the overall mood is optimistic and ambitious. If that weren’t enough, the cost of living is very reasonable and well below the national average. San Antonio is home of the River Walk and The Alamo, but towns in the Hill Country like Boerne, Fredericksburg and New Braunfels provide vineyards, history, great shopping and beautiful countryside. Though the most recent Census shows that San Antonio is now the seventh largest city in the US by population, most people here will be quick to tell others that it still feels like a small town due to the geographic size of the city. People can get everything they need within a few miles of home, but they can also head downtown for some big city action.

Culture
As employees of Rackspace, we are not simply numbers; we are proud Rackers. With that title comes a responsibility that we all feel. It’s a responsibility to embody and live the values that make our organization unique and extraordinary. It’s also a natural responsibility because the values we embrace were created by us. Learn more about our culture on our talent page which features blogs and general information put together by Rackers across the company.
