Looking to start my interview loops soon.

Can anyone tell me about the work environment at the Databricks office in Amsterdam? Any differences from the San Francisco HQ for eng roles? Is the pay competitive against Uber/Netflix/Booking?

How are the Billing Infra / Dev Tools / Runtime / Workflow teams?

      Darabricks paying more is news to me. I hear their salaries are comparable but their TC is lower.

      I make around 110K TC with 5 YOE. How much would Databricks offer?

      If you include equity, I think Databricks pay significantly higher than what you are making.

    I interviewed at Databricks AMS. Honestly, I did not like the environment.

      Yes, some of the interviewers were super cool, but in general I did not like the vibes. But it might be just a personal thing. So you should check it out. Also, I do think it’s probably one of the most technology challenging jobs you can find in AMS or in EU, so you should definitely give it a try. πŸ˜ƒ

    Databricks is having a difficult time with (sustained) Monetization of their platform. The culture is spotty and designed to get the core founding team very wealthy... they are super aggressive also.

    The vibes are mixed.

      Is this based on hearsay or personal experience?

      This is definitely hearsay. We are growing revenue at an insane clip.
