Data-driven businesses use Talend to deliver timely and easy access to data.

Talend lets organizations unlock all of their data, including historical, live, and emerging data. Through native support of the modern big data platforms, Talend’s zero footprint solution takes the complexity out of integration and equips IT to be more responsive to the demands of the business, at a predictable cost. 

Big data is a complicated adventure. Business requirements are always changing, and data-driven organizations require more access to data, faster.

Recipes from the past do not work in the big data environment. Simply put, current integration technologies are not cutting it moving forward. Now more than ever, organizations need the right tool for the right task.  

Talend equips IT to deliver all data where, when, and how the business needs it.

Business cases for big data are as numerous and diverse as industries and company types. But one thing is clear: organizations of all sizes are embarking on the journey now. And the ones who don’t will be left on the sidelines. Talend has worked with many enterprise IT organizations and industry luminaries to identify the primary obstacles to success with big data:

  • Availability of big data skills
  • Need to integrate many different sources
  • Deployment and management of the big data infrastructure
  • Governance of data
  • Difficulty to obtain funding

The big data promise is not only to meet today’s needs, but also what it will be able to deliver tomorrow and in the future. That future is showing up on the horizon, with new technologies that will enable real-time and operational big data. Because organizations want their big data investment to scale, they need a platform that offers the modularity required for the future.

Only Talend can future-proof big data investments!

Beyond big data, Talend’s unified solutions portfolio includes data integrationdata quality,master data managemententerprise service bus and business process management.  Talend’s platform is architected around a common set of easy-to-use tools implemented across all products to maximize the skills of integration teams.

    I have been working at Talend full-time (Less than a year)


    The recruiting process was A+ and very structured. My HR contact was awesome and explained the entire recruiting process to me, during our first conversation. My HR contact guided me well thru the entire process and what to expect along the way. One of the great attributes of my HR contact was excellent communication and keeping me abreast of current status and recruiting developments. Without guidance from my HR contact, the recruiting journey would not have been so smooth. Thanks again and I'm glad to be part of the Talend Team.

    Strategic Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Talend (Redwood City, CA) in October 2018.


    Application Process:
    One of the Principal Recruiter with Talend has reached out to me via LinkedIn to check if I would be interested in applying for a Strategic Architect role with Talend. The process started with initial meeting with the recruiter where we discussed my background and the opportunities that were available. The recruiter was a strong champion of Talend, educated me on opportunities available, company’s culture, interview process and timelines and answered all my questions.
    Interview Process:
    Overall the interview process consisted of 5 rounds. Initial call with recruiter followed by couple of rounds of technical screenings. Once the technical screenings were completed, participated in a situational round which included team, customer handling scenario based questions. After that was completed was asked to attend the final round of interview at Redwood City for job trail based on a use case that was provided ahead. I had the opportunity to meet 1:1 with hiring manager, he was very helpful and took extra time to ensure all my questions were answered. Next day, I had the opportunity to talk with couple of Executive Leaders, they were very helpful and had provided me opportunities to ask questions.
    Overall, the interview process was very well structured to assess the overall candidate’s abilities including technical, customer handling, right fit and behavioral skills. Throughout the process the Hiring Manager and others were very friendly and would check if I had any questions, as I moved through the process, it not only helped me learn more about Talend but also had helped me learn the great culture and the ONE team environment. Throughout the process, I was always provided timely feedback and clear next steps after each round.
