Big Data; Simplified

Datameer – Why Work For Us?

Founded in 2009 by some of the original contributors to Apache Hadoop, Datameer has grown to a global team, advancing big data analytics.

Our story

After several implementations of Hadoop analytics solutions at Global 500 companies, the founders were determined to build the next generation analytics application to solve the new use cases created by the explosion of structured and unstructured data. Datameer is the single application for big data analytics by combining data integration, data transformation and data visualization. Customers love us and we work to make Datameer even better each day.



Datameer was founded by Hadoop veterans to re-imagine data analytics and empower anybody with a need for the truth to find it through data analytics.  As such, we have built a company based on a core set of shared values so that we can march toward this goal together.  These values shape who we are and how we make decisions on a daily basis.

At Datameer, we are:


We stand by this motto: "People With Passion Can Change The World" Steve Jobs. We do things because we want to make a positive impact in the world and are excited about the possible outcomes that our work will have.


Our mission is to consistently question the status quo and build a data analytics product for everyone.


Our company is made up of people who accomplish amazing work in a short period of time.  Our colleagues and customers can rely on us for great results.

Excellent listeners and communicators

Instead of reacting first, we listen, understand what our customers, prospects and community at large communicates to us, and then we make decisions.

Believers of simplicity

The world is full of complexity and complications. 
We don’t plan to add any more.


We are always expanding our knowledge on the marketplace, our customers and competitors in order to effectively make the world of big data a better place.



We love to take smart risks and be bold - even if it is controversial. We make tough decisions and our actions will be consistent with our core values.


We believe in candor and being direct. We will stand up for our beliefs but will also be the first to admit mistakes.


The end game is to change the world and make our customers successful, everything else follows from that goal.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Datameer in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    In person interview, I was pretty confident I had a solid background in the peripheral skills required, i.e hadoop, analytics, scripting in multiple languages, just not much Java. So I spent a full weekend and late nights poring through their product documentation and watching the videos on their site. I felt extremely prepared! Well, they didn't ask me anything technical! It was a "behavioral interview". I've been off the market for over a decade so this was all new to me. However all the questions were scenarios I actually am confronted with in my current job, where I am pretty successful! So I felt at the time as I answered it was in line with what they were looking for. I was even told on exit "we'd be lucky to have you". So I exited fairly confident I would move on to next steps, as they said due to size of the company and position need it should move pretty fast. After a week of hearing nothing, I reached out and was told they are going with another candidate. So now looking back, I just wonder how I actually did come off "behaviorally". It would be easier to accept if my technical acumen wasn't up to snuff. But now its a psychological mind game with myself wondering what a jerk I must of sounded like!!
