Talend – Why Work For Us?

Who We Are

Talend is a 400-employee, pre-IPO, big data integration software company with deep open source roots. With over $100 million raised to date and continued rapid growth, we are the second largest independent open source company in the world. Talend is headquartered in Redwood City, CA . The company also has offices in France, the UK, Germany, China and Japan.

Talend’s integration solutions allow data-driven organizations to gain instant value from all their data. Through native support of modern big data platforms, Talend takes the complexity out of integration efforts and equips IT departments to be more responsive to the demands of the business, at a predictable cost.

Our technology leadership and aggressive deployment has enabled average year over year revenue growth of over 100%. By the end of 2014, we’ll add over 150 new colleagues worldwide.

Talend offers the opportunity to join a rapidly growing and dynamic team, supported by comprehensive benefits and employee programs. With a global presence and sustained growth, Talend is a place for entrepreneurial, collaborative team members. We’re looking for people who bring high energy and high dedication, and who are excited to impact a field that is revolutionizing how business is done.


Founded in 2006 in Paris, France, Talend has quickly grown from a startup organization to a global market leader in the open source middleware space. The recognized leader in open source integration solutions, Talend provides integration platforms that truly scale to organizations of all sizes and integration needs.

The company shatters the traditional proprietary model by supplying open, innovative and powerful software solutions with the flexibility to meet the needs of all organizations. Talend democratizes integration by making its solutions available to organizations of all sizes, for all their integration needs.

Data-driven businesses use Talend to deliver timely and easy access to data.

Talend lets organizations unlock all of their data, including historical, live, and emerging data. Through native support of the modern big data platforms, Talend’s zero footprint solution takes the complexity out of integration and equips IT to be more responsive to the demands of the business, at a predictable cost. 

Big data is a complicated adventure. Business requirements are always changing, and data-driven organizations require more access to data, faster.

Recipes from the past do not work in the big data environment. Simply put, current integration technologies are not cutting it moving forward. Now more than ever, organizations need the right tool for the right task.  

Talend equips IT to deliver all data where, when, and how the business needs it.

Business cases for big data are as numerous and diverse as industries and company types. But one thing is clear: organizations of all sizes are embarking on the journey now. And the ones who don’t will be left on the sidelines. Talend has worked with many enterprise IT organizations and industry luminaries to identify the primary obstacles to success with big data:

  • Availability of big data skills
  • Need to integrate many different sources
  • Deployment and management of the big data infrastructure
  • Governance of data
  • Difficulty to obtain funding

The big data promise is not only to meet today’s needs, but also what it will be able to deliver tomorrow and in the future. That future is showing up on the horizon, with new technologies that will enable real-time and operational big data. Because organizations want their big data investment to scale, they need a platform that offers the modularity required for the future.

Only Talend can future-proof big data investments!

Beyond big data, Talend’s unified solutions portfolio includes data integrationdata quality,master data managemententerprise service bus and business process management.  Talend’s platform is architected around a common set of easy-to-use tools implemented across all products to maximize the skills of integration teams.
