    SDR Interview

    Positive Experience


    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.

    Cloudera CEO Tom Reilly on law enforcement and fake news

    Data Mining Governments, law enforcement and intelligence agencies that are not using big data and machine learning are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to tackling terrorism and crime, says Tom Reilly, CEO of Cloudera.


    International Women in Engineering Day hits the global stage

    The problem is not a new one and it is getting worse. The gender imbalance in engineering has been widening since the 1980s. Just 18 percent of computer science graduates today are women - less than half of what it was in 1984, according to data from Girls Who Code, a non-profit aimed at advancing women in technology fields.
