BlueGranite – Why Work With Us?


Our Core Values

We’re guided by these shared values, which shape everything we do:


Client First

We’re all about creating a great experience for our clients and delivering value at a rapid pace. We use our knowledge and expertise to determine where we can make the most impact on our clients’ and partners’ bottom lines, and go above and beyond to leave you in awe.

Integrity

We value honesty. We fulfill our commitments and promises and always hold each other accountable. A high integrity workplace means we also foster open and honest communication with each other.

Have Fun

We take time to build personal relationships with one another, clients and partners, which means we actually enjoy who we work with, and you’ll see that attitude reflected in the end product — our work for you.

Teamwork

We wouldn’t be who we are as a company without teamwork. It’s what makes us unique. We believe the smallest things can make the biggest impact, so we don’t hesitate to go that extra step. No contribution is too small.

Commitment to Innovation

We maintain a startup culture where we’re always learning, experimenting and moving forward. We take pride in our work and are always looking for new ways to create great experiences for our clients.

It’s not unusual to hear our employees say they love coming to work everyday. In fact, many of our employees have been with BlueGranite for more than five years—a rarity in an industry with frequent turnover. We really enjoy who we work with, whether that’s co-workers or clients, and that comes through in our work every day.

We invest in our team members and our culture to create a high-performing work environment, which makes the customer experience more enjoyable and productive.

When you meet us, you’ll notice we listen more than we talk and are always ready to contribute.

We have a real passion for technology and are continually learning about the latest advancements in order to share that knowledge with our clients. We thrive most when we’re solving clients’ problems.


We're looking for talented self-starters with a passion for data and a desire to learn.

At BlueGranite, we commit to our clients first each and every day. We are guided by our shared values and maintain a startup culture where we are always learning, experimenting, and moving forward.

We have been recognized by Great Place to Work, where 98% of employees have rated BlueGranite as a great workplace. In 2017, we were named in Fortune Magazine as a top 50 Best Workplace for small and medium sized businesses.

    I have been working at BlueGranite full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am a relatively new consultant, but I am very pleased with what I have experienced so far. The team is filled with very bright consultants. The expertise of the consultants covers all major areas of the Microsoft data platform and Databricks. They also have many consultants with deep knowledge about all aspects of business intelligence and data science.

    Educational opportunities at BlueGranite are plentiful, and the consultants willingly share their knowledge with their teammates. My macro goals from a data analytics standpoint are inlined with the organization’s leadership, so I feel fortunate to be part of the team.

    Cons

    The company uses many different systems from an administration standpoint, which can cause certain things to be confusing. But I am sure that after some time things will become less more clear.

    Data Engineer Consultant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlueGranite.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an invite to complete a "technical assessment".

    The assessment? 2 sets of 20 "logic based" questions to be completed in 20 minutes each - one set for mathematical logic, and the other based on written reasoning. Oh, and you lose credit for each question you don't answer. Think bs questions like.. "Given a set of balls and their colors - If Sally has a red ball, and Bill has a blue ball but not a green ball, and John has two blue balls, what color ball does Susan have if she doesn't have a green ball"?

    Of course the question above is nonsense, but the actual questions take some time and effort to answer correctly, and to be rushed to answer each question with only a minute each? Yikes.

    The funny thing? After realizing how silly the process was and that I wasn't going to get a call back after submitting my assessment, I decided to take screenshots of every question. I was able to answer every single question correctly at my own pace. Sure, it took me about an hour, 20 minutes longer than the time allotted for the assessment, but at least I knew my answers were correct.

    Makes me wonder how much talent BlueGranite is passing up because they expect people to be able to answer these silly questions instantly. It's really hard to take a company seriously that values the ability to quickly solve brain teasers as opposed to putting thought and effort into each situation - which is far more beneficial in the real world.
