Data Requirements of the Right-Now Economy

Users demand more from their applications every day, and the Right-Now Economy is driven by the five dimensions of these new demands:

  • Relevancy requires contextual information and experiences.
  • Availability requires the applications to be always on.
  • Responsiveness means the application must be able to handle real-time requirements.
  • Accessibility means the application must be easily distributed across geographies.
  • Engagement means the application must be easily scalable both economically and operationally, no matter business demands or challenges.

The Data Layer for the Right-Now Economy

Modernizing systems to support today's Right-Now customer doesn't need to be a costly, fork-lift style multi-year effort. Instead, you can easily integrate an innovative and adaptive data layer into your existing infrastructure to change the game and revolutionize the customer's data-driven experience.

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


    We get to work with amazing people who are extremely smart but humble. We get to work with teams that help each first. The work we are doing is cutting edge using the latest technology. Finally, because the company is so focused on remote work, the tooling is designed for that usecase perfectly


    Cannot think of any at this point

    Advice to Management

    Keep on moving forward and embracing the new world we live in, especially with software initiatives that make us not only more relevant than we are, but pushing the boundary to being the next Kleenex only in distributed databases (i.e. Kleenex is the name brand of facial tissues, but every uses Kleenex as the name for all facial tissues)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DataStax in July 2018.


    I applied with Datastax at the end of June in 2018. A recruiter got in contact with me shortly after in the beginning of July. The interview process was very smooth and easy going. Datastax is a distributed team and all of the interviews were done online. I met with 6 different people from the company. The process took about 4 weeks overall since there were so many people to meet with in order to determine my technical skills as well as my cultural fit. Everyone I interviewed with were all extremely friendly, knowledgable, and easy going during the process. I can say it was the best interview process that I have been through. Even though everyone is spread out and in different timezones, they were all still available and flexible when it came to scheduling interviews without delay. The recruiters were extremely fast with getting back to me in order to schedule the next interview and answering any questions that I might have. I was extremely excited to accept the offer after hearing so much about the company, team, culture, etc.
