DataStax is the company behind Apache Cassandra, which powers real-time online applications. While relational databases fail under modern and dynamic workloads, high-volume data and new business requirements, Cassandra’s modern architecture makes it massively scalable, always available and easy to deploy. DataStax delivers a production version of Apache Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise (DSE), and the ecosystem to make the vision behind Cassandra a reality.
Shorten the time to revenue for Cassandra deployments and extend capabilities of Cassandra with enterprise-ready features and technology, such as search, security, analytics, in-memory computing and easy-to-use management tools. DataStax Enterprise and its supporting ecosystem provide fast performance, strong security, and operational simplicity for line-of-business applications.
I have been working at DataStax full-time (Less than a year)
When you have a product that is a leader on it's kind. You are not really "selling", you are spreading the word on a truly great platform that can enable innovation, and being part of that is just amazing.
- The Product is amazing and is getting better
- The People are outgoing, warming and respectful
- At HQ you have everything you need
- The Benefits are great and so is the Compensation
Is a growing company, and they are working on structures. But this is nothing bad, time is all they need but otherwise is the best company I've worked for
Advice to Management
Continue to think on your people, continue to support your people, keep your employees in mind as you are doing now.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DataStax in March 2014.
Standard interview process consisting of a phone call from a recruiter followed by multiple tech interviews via video conferencing. They will give you a programming problem to solve in your language of choice.
I solved the programming problem only to have it labeled as too simplistic of a solution. Evidently the hiring manager made a mistake in not providing a challenging enough problem to solve. I was asked to solve a more difficult version of the problem after which I decided to halt the interview process. I deem this behavior as unprofessional and a complete waste of a candidates time.
It looks like DataStax is a young company - unfortunately many of their managers lack professionalism and good interview etiquette. Some of the negative reviews from existing employees confirm this. This appears to be a case of a company promoting engineers to management roles without providing them management training.
