    I have been working at StreamSets full-time (More than a year)


    A fun/exciting startup environment with a very professional, reasonable approach. Management sincerely cares about each employee's satisfaction. There is plenty of room for personal and professional growth and management has a track record of promoting from within the organization. Generally, I would say that management is very fair, reasonable and communicative.

    Additionally, customers truly find value in the product - and quickly. We have already built a very innovative, exciting offering and the roadmap going forward is aggressive.

    This is truly a great company and an excellent place to work. We have all the benefits you would appreciate/expect from a competitive Bay Area tech firm.


    Standard growing pains apply, but again, management is very receptive and reasonable in how to handle these well.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employee happiness and company culture. Hire people who will blend well into the current culture.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at StreamSets (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.


    2 phone screens, 1 onsite interview. The process was smooth and the recruiter was very nice. They let you write code in any language, but Java is preferred.

    Interview Questions

    • They require very strong coding skills, design patterns, and concurrent programming skills.   Answer Question

    Enterprises struggle to manage big data flows

    Enterprises of all sizes are facing challenges on a range of data performance management issues from stopping bad data to keeping their data flows operating effectively. This is a finding of a survey by data performance management specialist StreamSets which finds that nearly 90 percent of respondents reported flowing bad data into their data stores, while only 12 percent think themselves good at the key aspects of data flow performance management.


    This Company Says It Has Identified the Next 10 Unicorn Startups

    The number of new unicorns born in the fourth quarter last year declined sharply from the third quarter, from 23 to nine worldwide. As the " smart money" dries up, identifying the most promising new startups gets even more interesting.
