About Snowflake

Snowflake started with a clear vision: make modern data warehousing effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. Because traditional on-premises and cloud solutions struggle with this, Snowflake developed an innovative product with a new built-for-the-cloud architecture that combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
In addition, Snowflake’s culture was built on the following values that are even more important to us today:
Put Customers First. We only succeed when our customers succeed
Integrity Always. Be open, honest, and respectful
Think Big. Be ambitious and have big goals
Be Excellent. Quality and excellence count in everything we do
Get It Done. Results matter!
Own It
Make Each Other the Best
Embrace each others Differences

An Insider's view of Snowflake

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Contrary to the “eat or get eaten mentality” that cripples businesses, I share communication daily with members of the marketing team, educational and training teams, IT staff, and executive leadership. I work with these teams in a collaborative manner that enables everything from getting tasks done to generating new ideas for the org.

Christina

Sales Development Representative

How does the company support your career growth?

When I started a year ago, there were only 5 SDRs in the Denver office. As the team grew, I was able to continue honing in on my sales skills and further develop my leadership skills as a Team Lead, eventually leading me to SDR Manager. Now we have 28 SDRs in our Denver office. I'm grateful that I joined a company that invests in my career growth

Cami

Manager, Sales Development

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Denver SDR team (aka The Pioneers) are having a significant impact on the trajectory of our business. Each member of the team is responsible for cracking into some of the most data driven organizations on the planet. We embrace risks and see failure as a chance to improve. And we know we won't be successful without consistent collaboration.

Quinn

Manager, Sales Development

What makes someone successful on your team?

I truly believe that the thing that makes us successful is our core values: Put Customers First, Integrity Always, Think Big, Be Excellent, Get It Done, Own It. I've been at companies where the core values are just words. That is not the case at Snowflake. These words are the foundation of what makes each of us successful as individuals.
