Behind some of the top minds in Big Data, including Doug Cutting, who invented Hadoop, Cloudera enhances the storage and processing technologies originally developed by the world’s biggest Web companies. Today, Cloudera is the market leader in Hadoop with tens of thousands of nodes under management, as well as the top contributor of code to the Hadoop ecosystem. Markets include financial services, government, telecommunications, media, web, advertising, retail, energy, bioinformatics, pharma/healthcare, university research, oil and gas, gaming and more.
Why Open Source Matters
Since its inception in 2008, Cloudera has been strongly committed to a community-driven, open source Hadoop distribution because of its practical benefits for customers.
In addition to offering the benefits of open source, Cloudera has led the way to work with customers to ensure that their performance, availability, security, and recoverability needs are met in the open source platform, beginning with its first involvement with Hadoop.
Cloudera’s deep involvement in the Hadoop community ensures customers benefit from a close alignment of the open source roadmap with their needs - and get expert, proactive support from people who know the platform best.

I have been working at Cloudera full-time (More than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Transparency.. collaboration.. connection..personal growth.. and a reason to go to work every day beyond just cash or a possible IPO..What Cloudera is doing will affect every industry and is drastically changing how organizations learn from their data. This is fun because of the amazing talent here. It has been exciting to see many high potential prospects pass on larger roles at larger companies because of who is at Cloudera and what we are doing. I truly feel connected to my team which is global.
It is hard, hard, work. Everyone is "all in" which is great, but it can be exhausting. If you join, be prepared to run hard and run fast for a while..
Advice to Management
Cloudera has made significant strides in the last 6 months to build scalable processes that increase productivity but also balance the workloads among groups, versus individuals. Continue to increase this investment tools and systems that connect people.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 6 days – interviewed at Cloudera in June 2015.
Spoke to a recruiter over the phone and gave the recruiter an overview of my career for about 10 minutes.
The recruiter then asked me my current salary and I mentioned that I have a personal policy not to disclose that information for privacy reasons but would like to be paid approximately what Cloudera's main competitor (Hortonworks) is paying its employees for a similar position. I then let the recruiter know what Hortonworks was paying, according to Glassdoor's salary listings.
The recruiter then became very aggressive, and asked me two more times about my current salary level becoming increasingly more aggressive each time and even becoming somewhat "thuggish" as the call progressed. The recruiter even had the nerve to instruct me to "go find my tax return" and tell the recruiter what dollar amount was listed in the return's "salary" section.
The recruiter stated that "every" person interviewed by Cloudera must disclose his or her current salary in order for the interview process to move forward. I mentioned that I felt this line of questioning was a bit inappropriate and antiquated - and was similar to asking someone if they were married, gay, Muslim, etc.
Then the recruiter completely shut down the interview and did not even ask me if I had any questions about the job, Cloudera's work environment, etc. The recruiter also mentioned that things would probably not move forward, but that the recruiter would follow up with me within one business day.
Then, two business days after my call with the recruiter I received an anonymous email from Cloudera Recruiting stating that the hiring process would not be moving forward.
Note to Cloudera Executives:
Based on this experience, it seems like Cloudera may actually be "contributing" to Silicon Valley's gender pay gap problem when Cloudera should really be trying to "eliminate" the issue.
