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 through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DataStax (Austin, TX) in March 2018.
Gave them my resume at career fair and received an email from the guy I talked to there about a week later. Had a phone screening just talking about the job position and then the guy sent an tech challenge with no deadline or time constraints. Tech screen was basically creating a program that tests if certain files were correct or incorrect. Took me a while to understand the instructions.
Due to my schedule and various questions I had, the challenge took me about 3 weeks to finish but someone else could have pounded this out in a day or weekend if they had the free time and no questions. During the 3 weeks I worked on it, I actually submitted it twice, but the first time, my output was wrong due to miscommunication with the guy, so I re-submitted it. About a week later, I got a phone offer.
Overall, they were very accommodating, friendly, and relaxed. They were very understanding of my busy schedule as a student.
