Trying to sort out cloudera products. What is inside what?

Re: Trying to sort out cloudera products. What is inside what?

Hi Fletcher,

Glad to hear you're interested to join!

The team in Nashua covers a wide variety of areas, including both front end and back end features. You can learn more by talking with HR, as I'm not totally sure of everything done in that office.

Thanks,
Darren

Thanks, I will probably find out soon. In fact I have a phone interview
today, in about a half hour.

And yes I am interested. I have been in QA the last several years for a
GUI product that manages and monitors SAP's database products. SAP
Control Center. Our offfice in Concord NH is being closed by the
corporate guys - consolidating locations they call it. Our office is
just too small for them. We dont know what to make of that, but there
it is

I have been looking around NH for openings, and this is far above any
other in the interest level for me. And the match with the job
description looks remarkable to me. Both CM and our SCC have a server
and agents and supporting services, and Alerts and role-based access
control and even the look and feel of it seems familiar. I feel like I
can "see" what CM does with the backend. And the scripts and logs and
xml files look like what I have worked with.

And I found a bug .... or what I would consider a bug for SCC. If you
go to Add Hosts to the Cluster, it lets you go through the wizard and
add a host that already belongs to the cluster. ???!!! In SCC we would
have a popup saying "That host is already in the cluster."

Anyway I am truly hopeful

Good luck in your interview!

As for that bug, when I tried it out, then I saw that the wizard found the host, it told me it was already managed (there's a column in the results table for this), and I could not select the check box next to its name.

Darren -  this is off topic, of course, and I hope it's not out of line, but would you be willing to tell me something about working at Cloudera?  I dont know anyone yet, except the interviewer, who I found likable.  Just wondering about the daily life, particularly the QA culture there.  Could you contact me at flokey@metrocast.net, or through LinkedIn?  I wont become I pest, I promise.  And sign an NDA if you want   :-)

Hi Fletcher,

 

I'm not in QA, nor in that office, so can't offer much insight here, unfortunately. Your inteverviewers should be able to give you the best idea of how the culture is.

 

We can discuss further on LinkedIn.

 

Thanks,

Darren

OK, thanks. let me know via ... InMail? I do have some thoughts to see
what you think of them. You are not QA yourself, but perhaps you can
tell me something about how your own project works with QA.

thanks again

Fletcher
