Learn and Play Every Day at This Growing Company
“Not a day goes by without me learning something new,” says software engineer Shweta Saikumar.
And since 2010, DataSift has helped app developers learn from real-time user data without compromising consumer trust. Doing that means processing more than two billion human interactions a day—analyzing tens of thousands of posts on social networks, blogs, news articles and more per second.
How do they get it all done? Well, succeeding at DataSift all comes down to employee’s willingness to learn.
“People at DataSift are always keen on learning new technologies and ideas that will benefit us as a company,” says Saikumar.
DataSift has engineers tag along with customers to see what’s happening on the client’s end and their open office plans allows for a focus of exchanging ideas. “We have a lot of people here who are great at what they do and genuinely want to help you learn and grow,” shares Jay Krall, Director of Product Management.
This feeling of learning together and pushing each other even extends into the daily culture of its three global offices. For example, in London, DataSift hosts “Beer and Tell,” where colleagues hear about each other’s projects and ideas over drinks. (And if you have down time, watch your back because Nerf Wars are expected at any moment.) In San Francisco, DataSift sends an annual contingent to the Tough Mudder competition. And New York colleagues can always count on Thursday happy hours to help them chat about work events in a more casual setting.
“I love the culture at DataSift. It’s a great opportunity to work with ambitious colleagues and to work in a fast-paced environment. And we still find time to have fun!” says Molly O’Shea, a marketing content specialist.
