Meet our leadership

Cloudera was founded in 2008 by some of the brightest minds at Silicon Valley’s leading companies, including Google, Yahoo!, Oracle, and Facebook. And in 2011, 24 engineers from the original Hadoop team at Yahoo! spun out to form Hortonworks. Both companies, who joined forces in January 2019, were founded on the belief that open source, open standards, and open markets are best. This belief remains central to our values, evidenced by our significant investments in engineers and committers working with the open source community. Today, Cloudera has offices around the globe and is headquartered in Silicon Valley, California.

A Fresh Squeeze on Data children's book with children reading it

Partnering to educate the next generation of innovators

Children’s book explains ML and data bias in simple terms.

In partnership with education company ReadyAI and in the interest of making complex STEM concepts less abstract and more relatable to 8-to 12-year olds, we created a downloadable children's book, A Fresh Squeeze on Data.

As part of this initiative, Cloudera and ReadyAI sponsored the Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club’s “Summer Brain Gain” summer camps in Connecticut. The Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club will incorporate the book and accompanying lesson plans into local schools this fall.
