How Culture Has Helped Us Hire 

Team outings are a big part of Stackdriver's culture

Lots of companies from startups like Hubspot to mature companies like Google focus on culture. This culture focus seems to create a unique identity while helping align their teams. With that in mind, culture has been a major focus for our team from day 1 as well.  Our culture starts with our core values – […]

Water Cooler in the Cloud 

I think it is really important to love what you do at work.  Here are a few reasons behind why I love being a Customer Advocate at Stackdriver.   Brilliant minds around the water cooler I am a bit of a chatty Cathy, and I love to learn, so the opportunity to hang out at the […]

My journey from Netflix to Stackdriver 

After a summer of hearing about Stackdriver repeatedly from many of my Netflix co-workers, I decided to finally setup the product against one of my AWS/Netflix OSS-based open source projects. Within minutes, Stackdriver discovered the early stages of a subtle performance issue that would have gone unnoticed without a combination of various other analysis tools.  […]

How I Got Here 

It was not long after I permanently put the college campus in my rearview mirror when I became bombarded with questions from friends and family regarding my future and what exactly it was that I wanted to do. My answer to these constant inquests: “I’m not sure yet”. I did know a few things for […]

The Joys of Startup Marketing 

New Stackdriver marketing pro Daniel Ruby

Throughout my career, two things have become abundantly clear to me: one, I love learning new things and getting my hands all over the nitty-gritty marketing tasks; and two, nothing is more important than working with a tremendous team. Because of this, I’m thrilled to join Stackdriver as Demand Generation Manager. Here I can roll up my sleeves, get the word out about how cloud monitoring can be intelligent, and work with some phenomenal people.

Back on the Startup Train! 

I always knew I wanted to start my career after college at a start-up. I got sidetracked from my goal when I ventured towards the corporate world, stuck in pant suits and cubicles. Luckily I got back on the start-up train and found Stackdriver. As a new member of the Stackdriver team, I am very excited to collaborate with and learn more and more from these fun-loving and smart individuals who have built Stackdriver as a product and a company.

The Most Dynamic Tool in Your Kit 

I don’t know much about about cloud computing, DevOps or SaaS, but I like to believe it isn’t as much about what you know as it is about your capacity to learn. I’m looking forward to learning and to answering all of your queries in a prompt and courteous fashion!

Interning at Stackdriver 

I first heard of Stackdriver, “a Boston based startup”, when Izzy approached me. He gave me an overview of what they were up to, and I was hooked. Fast forward to now – it’s been a week since I joined and I already feel like I fit it. The team is helpful and fun to work with. I’ve already been assigned work that needs to go out to prod and I’m getting a hang of the system. I know that this is going to be a great summer and I’m looking forward to it.

When it Comes to Cloud Monitoring, We Make it Rain 

I very quickly learned early in my career that going through the corporate structure was not best suited for me. The same mundane day-to-day activities get boring quick; I needed stimulation, excitement, and energy in an environment where I could gain a lot of experience as well as advance my career. Being at a start-up that fills a need in the IT space is an experience like no other; always having work to do is never a bad thing!

I joined Stackdriver to innovate in the cloud 

I have been looking for an opportunity to join a start up where I can have an impact, with a great team, working in Boston, in a space where there is an opportunity to innovate. When a former colleague suggested I come by and talk with Stackdriver, it seemed to be a great fit–early stage start-up with a great team in Downtown Boston focused on the cloud! And when I saw the sense of progress and excitement in the office I was sold that this was the right thing. So I find myself back on the startup roller coaster. Wooooooooooooooo!
