How to Get Hired

We asked StreamSets Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

The most important characteristics are integrity, aptitude, initiative and a collaborative spirit.  We have a culture that values excellent work but also due respect being given to colleagues and truth-telling to ensure we quickly deal with mistakes and problems. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Getting in front of a current employee and telling them your story is the easiest way to break through the clutter of all the resumes we receive.  This also shows the level of initiative that we expect the candidates we hire. 

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

As we continue to grow we will continue to grow our engineering team but also staff up our sales, service and marketing functions.
