SAAMA IS....


LEADING EDGE

Our intellectual curiosity drives innovation. With a passion for data and analytics, we are courageous, take calculated risks, and execute with speed in a market that demands excellence. Our customers rely on our domain expertise and advanced analytics to deliver unique value on top of their existing BI infrastructure for enhanced and actionable insights. 

TALENTED

Saama’s seasoned executive team has emerged from some of Silicon Valley’s best companies to work for, including Hewlett Packard, Silicon Graphics/SGI, and NVIDIA.  Respected in the industry for their successful track records, our leaders are committed to integrity and creating a world-class organization with a team culture.

REWARDING

Our employees enjoy highly competitive compensation packages that attract the best and brightest.  In addition to annual salary benchmarking to ensure employees are well compensated, Saama has 401k, stock options and performance-based awards. 

CARING

Saama’s leadership believes time with family and friends can enhance the quality of life for its employees. Saama has generous time-off policies, offering vacation, holiday and paid family leave. In addition, Saama has 5 and 10-year length of service rewards that allow you additional time off and an expense paid vacation. Saama also offers benefit packages to support employees and their families, including medical, dental, vision, life, short-term/long-term disability, worker’s compensation and business travel.

CAREER BUILDING

Our employees are encouraged to take advantage of the professional development opportunities that Saama offers such as paid training and skill enhancement; tuition and certification reimbursement; and a career progression framework that builds employee capabilities in a range of areas from soft skills and technical tools to industry and domain expertise. 

GLOBAL

Saama has primary offices in Silicon Valley, California; Pune, India; and in the United Kingdom. Customers from all over the world employ us to handle the complexity of managing and processing data in more meaningful ways, which leads to better decision-making and trend discoveries than their traditional business analytic solutions can provide.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

Saama’s leadership believes that giving back is important. Employees are encouraged to be good stewards and to make the world a better place than we found it. As a company, we participate in sustainability and quality of life causes, recently participating in events at Second Harvest Food Bank, gifts to Haiti Earthquake Relief/Doctors Without Borders, donation collection campaigns, and computer giveaways to schools. Learn more.

    I have been working at Saama Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Extremely helpful management team that listens to every individual and provides the right opportunity to work. You are not pushed to an opportunity while on bench, you are given choices of opportunities to learn and work on modern technologies. Recently spending time on the bench is helping us with lots of shadow opportunities. Employer takes care and shares lot of information, I cant remember one single employer in the valley who has provided its employees with a cashless stock buy back option. An extremely focused and caring founder has lead the company to reach new heights. We get an opportunity to meet top level management member every week who shares about company updates during our weekly bench meetings. Overall great place to work with positive momentum.

    Cons

    Some times intentional ignorance to the well known facts by management. Employee concerns around parity issue and retention is growing and it requires immediate attention.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good momentum. Spend funding wisely across the functions to reach company goals. Retention activities and compensation variance needs a serious review.
