    What I Learned Shadowing Billy Bosworth for a Day

    For some people it takes a village. For me, it took at least a town or a small city along with my very determined mother, who immigrated from Japan to raise me. I saw her work as many as three jobs at a time, and her determination to ensure I wouldn't suffer from the hardships she experienced influenced me to strive for excellence and nothing short of it.

    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.

    Software Development Engineer In Test Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    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.
