Pentaho – Why Work For Us?



Unified Data Integration and Business Analytics To Save Time and Money

By tightly coupling data integration with business analytics, Pentaho brings together IT and business users to access, integrate, blend, visualize and analyze all data that impacts business results.  Our open source heritage drives continued innovation in a modern, unified, embeddable analytics platform that is purpose-built to save time and money.

Q&A with Q


What is Pentaho's Mission?

"Pentaho’s mission is to help our customers get fast insight and value from their data.  Whether their data is sitting in a relational database, sitting in the cloud or sitting in a big data store or a mass shipment combination of all the above.  But how we do that and what makes us unique in the marketplace is that we’re an analytical platform that provides data integration with a whole range of analytical tools: from reporting, to ad hoc discovery, to predictive analytics."

How is Pentaho Different?

"Pentaho is an integrated platform. Most business analytics vendors do some range of reporting and analytics; we actually combine the data integration process with the analytical toolset, saving our customers time, money and getting faster time to value."

How does Pentaho help our OEM Partners?

"OEMs are very important partners and customers for Pentaho.  The value proposition that we focus on for OEMs, is to help them make money.  And the how we help them make money is to help them enhance their services, where they can provide better reporting and analytics to their end user customers. The how we do that is we’re a very modern platform that’s very easy to embed into their core application."

What is Pentaho's Value to Big Data?

"Our value for big data is we solved two acute pain points today that customers are facing and trying to get insight and value form big data. One is how do you get unstructured data into a big data store whether that is Hadoop, NoSQL or an analytical platform? We do that with our data integration capabilities.  Then we solve the problem of how to actually get data insight and value from the data.  We do that with our integrated analytical toolset."

    I worked at Pentaho full-time (More than a year)


    The Orlando Office was a fantastic place to work.


    I grew professionally at Pentaho. I learned some of the best lessons of my career. If there are any cons, I outgrew my position too fast. I should have been more patient and waited for advancement. I got bored and frustrated because I thought too high of my abilities. I learned humility and work at a fast paced IPO startup that looks great on my resume! Thanks Pentaho :D

    Enterprise Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Pentaho (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2017.


    Short and very poor in process. Pentaho not a place for those which don't want to be bogged down by corporate" Big Brother" and metrics!,,,, Executive management not there to provide leadership or strategy. Purely there to monitor your activity to make them look good and cover them with their management. Would not recommend to Senior or experienced sales people. They run the business as if you don't know what your doing. A my way or highway environment
