Informatica – Why Work For Us?

Informatica is the champion of data disrupters everywhere.

 We Champion the Data Disrupters.

Informatica, the Enterprise Cloud Data Management leader, accelerates data-driven digital transformation by enabling companies to become more agile, realize new growth opportunities and create new innovations. 

Within every organization there are people who want to disrupt their industry, their community, their nation, or their world using data. We are their champions. With 100 percent focus on everything data, the Informatica Intelligent Data Platform is the industry’s most complete and modular solution, built on a microservices architecture. 

With over 7,000 customers worldwide, Informatica allows organizations to unleash the power of data and our peple to unleash their talents. 

Our values are a set of behaviors, beliefs, and norms that exist throughout our company. They reflect our strategy, our brand, our management practices, and in behaviors adopted throughout the business, at every level, in every department, and in all geographies. While they have been refined over time, they are still the same principles upon which the company was founded.

Accountability and Integrity

We operate with integrity and build mutual trust. We are personally accountable for our actions and for the consequences of those actions. Having accountability and integrity as a value means that we are who we say we are and we do what we say we will do. We’re personally accountable for our actions; to ourselves, to our customers, and most of all, to each other. We do what’s right, even if it’s not always to our advantage. We do not make commitments we do not intend to keep, and when we do commit, we deliver.

Commitment to Innovation & Excellence

We encourage original thinking in all areas of our work. We set the highest standards and expectations for ourselves and strive to exceed them. This is not just about innovation, or technical excellence. The idea that we create things we’re passionate about—products, deployments, partnerships, this entire company—goes beyond any one single accomplishment. Having innovation and excellence as an Informatica value goes to the core of everything that we do. It is an expression of how we feel about what we do and who we are when we’re doing it.

Dedication to the Success of our Customers

Our customers’ success is our success. We are committed to delivering products and services that make our customers, both internal and external, 100% successful. We have one of, if not the, highest ratio of successful deployments in the industry. It’s not just because our products are so good (they are, but that’s not the only reason). It’s because we are dedicated to making our customers successful - how well we’re doing is only measured by how well they’re doing. Their success is inseparable from our own. Making customers successful is what we do best, why we’re here, and the engine of our growth.

Maximizing the power of our efforts through teamwork

We work co-operatively across departments and geographies to achieve the best possible results for our customers, employees and shareholders. We understand the company goals and align our own goals and actions accordingly. This is a team sport. In order for us to be successful we each have to make the effort to ensure Informatica is a culture of “one team” with the competition being outside our walls, not within. If every employee makes the conscious effort to do the right thing for their fellow teammate and do the right thing for the company, we’ll not only be successful, but we’ll enjoy the ride that much more.

Imagine a place where doing business isn’t just business as usual. Where you are recognized and appreciate by your peers for good work. A place where smart co-workers support you and your success is measured by our customer’s success.

    Great culture! Everyone is on board to help realize the company mission - make our customers successful by helping them harness the power of their data! Great management, supportive and always helpful peers across the globe, comp and benefits at par with the best. I haven't worked at the company HQ or offices so can't say much about that.


    None! I try not to look for things to complain as that is an addictive mindset and appreciate all the amazing things at this company!

    Advice to Management

    Stick to what you're doing I.e. Drive the company towards the trends of the market and what our customers truly need to be successful. We are all in this together!

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Informatica (Austin, TX) in July 2017.


    Brief interview with recruiter. She quickly recognised I have the previous experience to excel in this role. Additional interview was set up with Director and Manager of the area.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't asked a single question relevant to the role or my resume. The Manager hi-jacked the interview with sports analogies. He went on and on about the parallel between football coaches and what they are looking for in the new hire.   1 Answer
