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). Doug Cutting, co-creator of Hadoop, joined the company in 2009 as Chief Architect and remains in that role. Today, Cloudera has over 1,600 employees across the globe–each one with their own hoodie.
