The process was very straight forward. A recruiter reached out to me on linkedin and set up a call with the hiring manager. Post that, there were 5 rounds of interviews. The interviews were a split between design and management questions. The entire process took 2 months and the recruiter was constantly in touch with the update. All the interviewers were very professional and passionate about Datastax and what they do.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DataStax (San Jose, CA) in Apr 2021

Interview

The recruiting team is one of best teams I’ve ever worked with. There were 4 rounds of interviews in total. The first is a HR screening call, followed by two 45-min calls with hiring managers. After that there was a technical assessment and another round of interview with future colleagues. Lastly I went through a values interview with a person from a different department, basically it’s a conversational interview and some behavioral questions were asked. The recruiting team is very kind, friendly and super responsive. Got feedback right after each round of interview and the offer letter arrived in my mailbox just a day after the last round of interview. Will definitely accept the offer given the positive interview experience with them.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DataStax in Apr 2021

Interview

I had the best experience as a candidate in the hiring process with DataStax. The process is extremely thoughtful from the start to the offer letter. Initially, I was invited to participate in a Zoom interview. She explained to me about the company and the open position, I shared my experience and next steps. After the first interview, I was invited to the second round, an interview with the Chief People Officer. Then, I received an invitation for the third round, which would be two meetings with people on the team. Finally, in the last round, I met with an employee from another department, to tell me more about the company's culture. In all the rounds, all the employees were extremely kind, attentive and made me feel very relaxed. The atmosphere is very friendly and I didn't feel the pressure/nervousness that we normally feel in the interviews. The process happens quickly and they offer all the necessary support, always ready to answer possible questions.

Interview Questions
  • The interviews were so smooth that they seemed more like a friendly conversation that revolved around: Tell me more about yourself What do you know about DataStax? Behavioral interview questions. What was the project that you liked the most?
