Datameer – Why Work For Us?

Founded in 2009 by some of the original contributors to Apache Hadoop, Datameer has grown to a global team, advancing big data analytics.

Our story

After several implementations of Hadoop analytics solutions at Global 500 companies, the founders were determined to build the next generation analytics application to solve the new use cases created by the explosion of structured and unstructured data. Datameer is the single application for big data analytics by combining data integration, data transformation and data visualization. Customers love us and we work to make Datameer even better each day.



Datameer was founded by Hadoop veterans to re-imagine data analytics and empower anybody with a need for the truth to find it through data analytics.  As such, we have built a company based on a core set of shared values so that we can march toward this goal together.  These values shape who we are and how we make decisions on a daily basis.

At Datameer, we are:


We stand by this motto: "People With Passion Can Change The World" Steve Jobs. We do things because we want to make a positive impact in the world and are excited about the possible outcomes that our work will have.


Our mission is to consistently question the status quo and build a data analytics product for everyone.


Our company is made up of people who accomplish amazing work in a short period of time.  Our colleagues and customers can rely on us for great results.

Excellent listeners and communicators

Instead of reacting first, we listen, understand what our customers, prospects and community at large communicates to us, and then we make decisions.

Believers of simplicity

The world is full of complexity and complications. 
We don’t plan to add any more.


We are always expanding our knowledge on the marketplace, our customers and competitors in order to effectively make the world of big data a better place.



We love to take smart risks and be bold - even if it is controversial. We make tough decisions and our actions will be consistent with our core values.


We believe in candor and being direct. We will stand up for our beliefs but will also be the first to admit mistakes.


The end game is to change the world and make our customers successful, everything else follows from that goal.

    Approves of CEO


    Company has a positive entrepreneurial atmosphere with lots of smart and energetic people. The product has a lot to offer in the big data analytics arena and is stable and well supported, compared to many other technologies in this market. Employees are generally working together toward a common goal and the greater good.


    Some of the mid and senior level management are relatively new and inexperienced. The company has experienced a lot of turnover in these roles. Hopefully some recent additions to the team will be a positive trend. Also, while the CEO seems generally interested in open communication re: growth plans, etc., day to day communication is lacking. There needs to be better communication from the management team to both corporate and remote employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you hire, especially in the VP and C level ranks. You can't afford to continue to experience turnover in those areas, as it doesn't bode well for the long term outlook or the external reputation of the company. Create more of a sales driven company; that aspect of the culture of sorely lacking.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Datameer in August 2015.


    After talking to a current employee about the job, I applied on Jobvite. A week later I received an email to schedule a video call with a recruiter. After that, they set up 2 more phone interviews, with people from cross-collaborative teams (not the training team). Nailed it.
