A few weeks ago, Shilpa, our VP of engineering was in New York City visiting prospective customers. While there, she also had an informal meetup with new and existing customers. One of our new customers liked Vertica so much that he literally handed Shilpa money to buy the Vertica Engineering team beer.
So, she did what all good managers do – delegate the acquisition to Sumeet. Thanks to his efforts we had a very special addition to one of our recent engineering lunches.
Nick, cheers from the entire engineering team! Thank you for your gift – we will all keep working hard to ensure your experience with Vertica continues to be a pleasure.
If you are intrigued, don’t take my anecdotal customer stories for why Vertica is great – try it yourself with the Vertica Community Edition.
P.S. If you are interested in working somewhere customers like your product so much they send you tasty beverages, we are hiring in all areas. Within engineering specifically we are looking for hackers from the lowest level depths of the database server, up through the client interfaces, the management console and third party integration programs.
