Our Mission

We develop open-source software for a world dependent on Big Data. With Cloudera, businesses and other organizations can now interact with the world's largest data sets at the speed of thought — and ask bigger questions in the pursuit of discovering something incredible. At Cloudera, we believe that data can make what is impossible today, possible tomorrow. We empower people to transform complex data into clear and actionable insights. Cloudera delivers an enterprise data cloud for any data, anywhere, from the Edge to AI. Powered by the relentless innovation of the open source community, Cloudera advances digital transformation for the world’s largest enterprises. We are currently building the next-generation machine learning and data science platform. Our product accelerates machine learning from exploration to production for customers. You will be responsible for helping deliver an enterprise product that meets and exceeds our customers’ expectations around quality. This role requires an empathetic mindset and close collaboration with developers, customers, support/field organizations and product management. We look for "The Startup Spark", a desire to think outside the box and around the corner, break things, put the customer first, dive in wherever there's a need, eagerness to make an impact as an individual and the willingness to learn new things. You must be self-motivated, innovative, and proactive.

Tech Stack

Impala, SQL, Node, Kafka, C++, AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, RDBMS, Java, large-scale distributed systems Impala is a scalable and fast SQL query engine that runs directly on Hadoop and supports a wide range of analytic workloads, from subsecond interactive dashboards with hundreds of concurrent users to petabyte-scale rich data exploration.  Impala is currently supported by a large paying customer base, and is a key component of the Cloudera data platform. It is open sourced under the Apache 2.0 license and is developed publicly, including code reviews and bug tracking (see It is distributed by Cloudera, MapR, AWS and Oracle among others. Our data science and machine learning stack also includes R, Tensorflow, PyTorch, Scikit, Spark, Jupyter, and Kubeflow. We use cloud technologies like AWS, GCE, and Azure, and for microservices development, we use tools like Go, GRPC, and SQL. Also, we use modern javascript frameworks such as Angular, React, Ember, and Vue. The exact framework used depends on the particular team you're on.

Core Values

Working at Cloudera is about contributing toward the greater good. You’ll find we’ve been involved in some impressive initiatives, including helping establish a cloud-based collection and analysis tool that identified suspected human trafficking networks and individuals. And in 2016, we joined President Obama’s Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI), where we've committed to train 1,000 researchers in the latest big data technology. At Cloudera, our culture, our ethos, is centered on our values. We're here not only because we're experts at what we do, but also because we hold these values in common. We are always moving forward: We have a bias for action and a sense of urgency about the work we do. Our customers are solving for their future, and we’re solving for them in real time. We don’t stall decisions with overthinking or consensus building. We debate, we commit, we move on. We believe in open: We believe in the power of open source, and an open culture that encourages candor and transparency. We recognize that great ideas can come from anywhere. We’re honest and respectful with one another and build trust by keeping our commitments. We are empathetic: We work side by side with our customers and fellow Clouderans to understand, anticipate and solve for their unique needs and challenges. Knowing that their success is our success, we seek to delight and empower them at every stage of their journey. We believe in We: Cloudera is a diverse community with one all-encompassing goal: Driving success together. Instead of asking, “What can I get out of this situation,” we ask, “What is needed here?” When this is our focus, our customers grow, we help each other grow, and we all succeed. That is the power of We.
