DataStax is a company that’s distributed by design and because of that employee collaboration is a core value of the business. Employees often come together in person within offices and leverage tools like Zoom, Atlassian, and ZenDesk, among others to ensure people stay connected and are able to work effectively together, and asynchronously.
DataStax employees are confident about the success of the company because it sits in a field that is currently booming. As a real-time AI company, DataStax employees are delivering technology that is at the forefront of innovation. Excitement from things like the company’s recent acquisition of Kaskada, the open sourcing of new AI/ML code, and the upcoming launch of a new AI service, keep employees excited, satisfied, and happy to contribute to the company.
Diversity and inclusion is a core value of the company at DataStax. We ensure that all voices are heard. Executives are highly accessible, and resource groups are available across the business, regularly presenting keynote talks with relevant and culturally impactful leaders and influencers. The company also promotes Slack groups where employees can come together and share about anything from their love of skiing to ways to better integrate AI into our platform. Datastax employees work every day to make the company inclusive to and to ensure a sense of belonging for all.
DataStax ensures that all employees are clear on the joint goals that the company is working towards together. All employees - from the CEO down, have a foundational understanding of what success looks like and teams work together to achieve their goals. Beyond company goals, DataStax provides employees with opportunities to expand their knowledge through the availability of learning platforms like Overdrive and Udemy Business.

DataStax has implemented a wealth of employee programs that ensure people feel appreciated and have the ability to spend time doing the things they love, while also providing the ability to give back to their communities. Programs like Employee Appreciation Day, Community Week, “Refresh Days” (when the company closes for a week to let people re-charge) enable employees to be healthier and happier both in the workplace and outside of it.
