An Insider's view of Dataiku

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Health and family come first here. We are humans primarily and employees second, meaning we not only provide resources for employees to get the help they need, but from leadership down, we support a healthy work-life balance. On my team, I focus more on the quality of work and let the team be flexible in the hours and cadence of their schedules.

Dan

Business Development Manager

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts at 7am catching up on Slack over coffee. I bring my daughter to preschool, then get back to work. I try to make time each day to prepare for my AWS certification. I also answer emails, have planning sessions with the internal sales team and meet with prospective customers. I usually wrap up by planning out my tasks for the next day.

Heidi

Pre-Sales Field Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Dataiku 2 years ago as a Data Scientist, and now I’m a Sales Engineer! I had no idea what Sales Engineering was and never could have imagined working in sales until I joined Dataiku. I was able to learn about being an SE through our internal career bridge program and test run the role before transitioning, so I knew what to expect.

Jacqueline

Sales Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

“I’m available any time. Call, Slack or text me— I’m always here to support you.” is something I say regularly to my team. For those early in their career, talking through each step in a sales process and understanding nuance is critical in building their “sales muscles.” As a leader, I can’t do that unless I’m extremely accessible.

Sagan

RVP of Commercial Sales, US

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Despite its size and pace of growth, Dataiku still strongly values promoting from within and believes that folks are dynamic and adaptable. My career has grown threefold. Dataiku has provided opportunities based on my patterns of success to take on more responsibility and leadership.

Sunny

Regional Manager of Customer Success
