    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cloudera.


    I reached out to a Cloudera recruiter about 2.5 years ago via Linkedin that resulted in a short, informal, follow up phone interview where I was told I did not have enough big data experience and I should consider taking an inside role and then working toward outside sales. At the time, I had 2 year experience in big data but 10 in high tech. Most recently, I apply to several roles, now with 4+ years big data experience, even an internal reference, and - NOTHING. Not even a pre-screen. Around the same time, a former colleague, a man with 0 big data experience finds himself in quick need of a new job and gets an immediate onsite interview where he is treated very well. After hearing this, I searched Linked in and saw what I needed to see. Cloudera, in Texas, seems to prefer to hire women (even experienced) in entry level SDR roles -- and keep them there. It seems they only hire women into experienced outside sales roles in CA. I won't be applying for another position with Cloudera until there is a massive change in leadership in Texas or I see proof in Linkedin they are hiring qualified women in Sr roles. Good luck with your boys club Cloudera and I'll be competing on the other side of your customers in the meantime.

    Will A.I., Blockchain, AR and/or VR Become A General Purpose Technology?

    The noise about disruptive tech is deafening; Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) creating crypto-millionaires at a pace causing even governments to worry, brain + machine interfaces and your face replacing your fingerprints/passwords. These, and other propositions that indeed make it seem like we live in a world that is moving faster than most of us can adapt to.


    'The pipeline' isn't causing tech's diversity problem: The workplace is, and here's 3 ways to fix it

    For tech organizations trying to diversify, there's an obvious go-to: invest in a more diverse pipeline. "For me, and I think for many, many, many companies, the pipeline problem feels easier because it's outside you," said Moz CEO Sarah Bird at a panel on diversity in tech at the 2017 GeekWire Summit.
