    Diversity in the workplace is a tough topic, but an important one - and the reasoning goes far beyond basic ethics. Not only is having an inclusive office more welcoming for employees, but it's also good for business. According to a 2018 McKinsey report, diversity and profitability are "clearly correlated."

    Really great company to work for, with Start-up feel despite rapid growth over the last couple of years. Plenty of opportunity for personal development within the company and a lot of focus on work/life balance and personal well being.


    No real major drawbacks, Company are always willing to listen to feedback and take on new ideas.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dataminr (New York, NY) in February 2018.


    Phone screen with a recruiter, spoke to VP sales, then came in for two rounds of interviews. Fantastic experience overall, the recruitment team is an amazing group of people and are really talented at what they do.
