To understand what drives our technology, one must first take a look under the hoodie.

Cloudera was founded in 2008 by some of the brightest minds at Silicon Valley’s leading companies, including Google (Christophe Bisciglia), Yahoo! (Amr Awadallah), Oracle (Mike Olson), and Facebook (Jeff Hammerbacher). Our founders held at their core the belief that open source, open standards, and open markets are best. That belief remains central to our values. Doug Cutting, co-creator of Hadoop, joined the company in 2009 as Chief Architect and remains in that role. Today, Cloudera has more than 1,600 employees — each with their own hoodie. We have offices in 24 countries around the globe, with our headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
