    I am Indian, and have a PhD from Stanford (info lab) but I didn’t go IIT. My friend recommended me,’at which point a director of engineering called me. He asked me to explain why I didn’t go to IIT on the phone call. I stopped the interview process

    It looks like they're an all Indian team. Brush up on your Hindi.

    One of my high school seniors became a director there and constantly keeps mailing me asking me to get in touch with his recruiter. Fuck that shit, you don’t get to cash the “personal” connection and at the same time ask me to connect via the recruiter.

    I have heard that it's great. But earlier they mostly hired iitians only like them. Not sure if it's still true.

    The company has hired a new CEO who has experience in taking a startup public. I think they may have an IPO late next year so now would be a good time to join. BTW, it’s true that they were only hiring engineers and managers in other functions who graduated from IIT colleges in India. But that will change with the new chief and the fact that they need to grow fast. Besides it’s not an “Indian” company anymore and non-Indians don’t give a shit about going to a specific school if you can pass the interviews.

      So if I got an offer, you would recommend me to go?

      They seem very nice people!

      Any advice?

    I knew the senior director of PMM there. He left a while back, they haven't grow as fast as some of the other startups but have some good tech. Not sure how much more they can grow in the BI market which is super competitive.

      If they pay well may be. Are you worried about job security or opportunity cost?

      Job security.

      If you are engineer you shouldn't really worry about that, there is so much demand. If you are not, I 'd check when the last round was raised who are the investors, ask them what their revenue looks like and gauge their financial health.

    Friend interned there. He was disappointed he didn't get a full time offer as he loved the work and the people. Said he'd highly recommend the company to anybody.

    I'm not from an IIT. I don't have an elite Masters degree. I still got interviewed and got the offer.

    How long ago was this ? They're being dumb if they're ignoring a Stanford grad !

    I don’t have any other information. If you interviewed with them, you should have a better idea of the company, culture and people. From the outside, it appears to be a good opportunity if there is no offer from FANG companies.

    ThoughtSpot is doing pretty well, the culture is healthy and the company has strong direction and goals, however quite mono ethnic which has been slowly changing recently.
