ThoughtSpot is hiring on 500 Miles

ThoughtSpot’s vision is to be the Google for business intelligence (BI). Their goal is to transform the $70 billion BI market by making BI as easy as search. 500 Miles has teamed up with ThoughtSpot’s recruiting organization to hire talented people like you.

Why join ThoughtSpot?

Located in sunny Palo Alto, California, ThoughtSpot is a pre-IPO company with around 100 employees. They are at the cusp of breaking out into a highly successful tech company.

In Their Own Words

ThoughtSpot is where Google was in 1999. A few interesting nuggets about them:

  • We are builders. A sense of creation drives us.
  • We have a very STRONG and experienced engineering team.
  • We are working on really HARD problems.
  • Our culture is so open that everyone participates in business activities and even sits in our board meetings.

Team Quality & Company Growth

ThoughtSpot’s founders have a track record of building and growing billion dollar technology companies. CEO (Ajeet Singh) is co-founder of Nutanix, a $2 billion tech company on its way to an IPO. Other co-founders have built market-defining search and analytics technologies at companies such as Google, Amazon, Oracle, and Microsoft. The team has grown consistently since the company was started in 2012. They have hired the best minds from Google, Microsoft, Aster Data Systems (acquired by Teradata), Oracle and Informatica.

Investor Confidence & Corporate Culture

ThoughtSpot has raised funding from top-tier investors including Aaron Levie (CEO, Box), Khosla Ventures, Lightspeed Ventures, among others. Their latest round of funding (Series B) of $30M in June 2014 is proof of their market traction. In addition, the company has been built on a culture of “selfless excellence”, openness and continuous learning. Its no surprise then that only a few employees have departed yet. We believe that such a robust data point often points to a winning culture.
