Approves of CEO


The company is run by, operated by, and mostly staffed by visionaries and doers. The CEO can even write code and is super comfortable showing executives how easy it is to use the product. Then


With rapid growth comes growing pains - sometimes you have to ask around for an answer to something that's super new.

Advice to Management

Keep up the transparency and openness as long and as much as you can - it's a breath of fresh air. And hold us all accountable for hiring the right people to keep our teamwork top notch.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Databricks (Paris) in Dec 2020


    Great experience, well defined steps. HR contact was there to explain me the next steps. The people I met during the process increased my motivation to join. Very humble yet highly skilled people in their domain. The interview process was quite long; HR screening, hiring manager interview, take home assignment on DB platform (scala + python mix), 2 technical interviews, then 4 more culture fit interviews with people from different teams.
    In parallel I had another offer but the HR rep tried his best to accelerate the process so I can have an offer in time.
