Powerful NoSQL database platform for today’s dynamic online applications

In-memory computing, search, analytics, security and simplified management built on Open Source Apache Cassandra.

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.

    I have been working at DataStax full-time (More than a year)


    Technology is on the rise: Cassandra and DSE are gaining huge market momentum. Recent customer conference had 3k attendees. Gartner recently put the technology in the leaders quad as well, which makes my life in sales easier. Great co-workers: The team I work with is very focused on success and they work really well together (great collaboration). Group is almost like a family. New Leadership: Had an opportunity to learn about the new EVP of Sales recently, believe he has the right attitude and experience to take the company to the next level. Very encouraged to see him build-out our sales culture. Office: The free meals and snacks are AMAZING, really good.


    If you're not used to a late stage start-up environment or selling disruptive technologies, the transition may be harder for you. For the right person, this may be more interesting and fulfilling.

    Advice to Management

    Keep executing. While I haven't been here too long, the future appears very bright. Share your successes both internally and externally (press releases) more often.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at DataStax.


    The weirdest interview I ever had. HR person interviewed me first, and found my resume and skills impressive, she acknowledged that existing experience with Cassandra is NOT required. Then she scheduled conversation with a manager in Boston - that guy was not even interested in my background and skills (I have 15+ years in IT BTW), he asked if I have experience with Cassandra (not required by the position description) and when I said "no" decided that I don't fit. Then our call suddenly dropped. There was no follow up at all.
