I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cloudera.
First interview is a phone screen with recruiter to get background. Second is Google hangout with hiring manager (cool guy Grant!) to understand if you can clearly deliver the Cloudera value proposition. Third is a google hangout with three SDR managers. Do your research and be able to talk about why big data analytics is useful and why using the Hadoop structure makes it fast and cheap. In the second interview look at customer use cases that you connect with. They want to make sure you feel a connection to the value being added by their services. What do you think are cool uses and why? I ended up not getting the job, but....the Senior Recruiter called me to tell me this and offered her help if I had career questions or wanted connections. This was an amazing human connection and in my opinion speaks more about the quality of the company and team. It makes me want to help them grow even if I'm not employed there.
