A great group of passionate people!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hortonworks full-time for less than a year

ProsAll the benefits of a start up company, lots of passionate people who are working toward a goal of massive Hadoop adoption. Great access to senior leadership, the President of the company is generous with his time, as are all managers.

ConsNot too many, being remote is hard, would be great to have some more regional offices so that employees could build culture together. The headquarters are ok but a little disheveled, although nice perks with lunch offered etc. Some internal politics to navigate, but which company doesn't have that.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget about the people in the field, we could use a place to gather with local colleagues too.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
