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.

    I have been working at Datameer full-time (less than an year)


    The product is awesome. It is well developed, reliable, and they keep upgrading and adding to it. They have had 5 versions released in 4.5 years, and every version has brought major functionality increases with it.

    The people here are very smart, don't take themselves too seriously and like to have fun.

    They have moved to a very nice office in the Mission. It is about a 8 minute walk from the 16th/Mission BART stop. Very accessible, and the building is beautiful.

    You can tell they are about to go into a high growth mode here. There are a lot of new faces around, and with the new product release allowing our companies users to use Datameer on any size job the opportunities are seemingly endless here.

    They also believe in hiring to peoples potential, and are committed to developing their employee's.

    I also have had numerous interactions with the CEO and have not seen any of the behavior mentioned on here from a the review in 2012. I don't believe that is any longer a consideration for employment here.


    They are not super perk heavy, which is ok, but having a few bean bag chairs or comfy places to sit in the office would go a long way.

    The only bumps here are caused by growing pains, and that is a good thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A great perk would be a wifi hotspot for each employee to use as they commute into the city. Many of us commute via public transit, and would like to be able to check email, get ready for the day while commuting.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Datameer in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received an email from a recruiter making fun of my current employer.
    I played ball with her because I wanted to work for Datameer and continued the email thread.
    After that I heard nothing back for 6 months. The new recruiter apologized but would clean things up
    because the old recruiter was no longer with Datameer.
    He sure did, another batch of emails and his explanation was that their department continued to go through restructuring. So the bad experience was repeated and another candidate was hired over me. I hope to never hear back because I would have to decline them.
