Highlights:

• Databricks Expands Bay Area Presence, Moves HQ to San Francisco;
• Company Names Kavitha Mariappan as Marketing Vice President.

Databricks, the company founded by the creators of the popular open-source Big Data processing engine Apache Spark with its flagship product, Databricks Cloud, today announced the relocation of their headquarters to San Francisco from Berkeley, California. The expansion is a reflection of Databricks’ growth heading into 2015. The company grew more than 200 percent in headcount over the last year and adds talent to its executive bench with the appointment of Kavitha Mariappan, former Marketing Vice President at Maginatics, an EMC Corporation Company, as Vice President of Marketing.

Originally founded in Berkeley, Databricks’ relocation is spurred by the startup’s rapid growth over the past year, which has led to numerous new hires, increasing the total headcount from 14 to 46 full-time employees. In anticipation of continued growth, the company has secured a prime new space in the SOMA district of San Francisco with over 15,000 square feet triple the size of the previous office. The new location will also enable Databricks to host their routinely-attended Spark MeetUps and training sessions in-house an initiative the company organizes for Spark users around the Bay Area.

“San Francisco is a melting pot for raw talent and technology innovation, and gives us excellent access to customers and partners who share our vision of simplifying Big Data processing to generate real value,” said Ion Stoica, CEO of Databricks. “Databricks has deep roots in the Bay Area and we are excited to move to this hub of innovation and opportunity, while still having a view of Berkeley from our windows.”

Databricks is also announcing today the appointment of Kavitha Mariappan as Vice President of Marketing. With 20 years of industry experience, Mariappan will be instrumental in the development and execution of Databricks’ global marketing across sales channels and communication platforms, and will work hand-in-hand with the customer engagement, product and engineering teams to communicate the value, use cases, and unique capabilities of Databricks Cloud to the enterprise and developer communities. Mariappan comes to Databricks from Maginatics, an enterprise storage solutions company recently acquired by EMC, where she built and led the team responsible for all aspects of product, technical, channel and outbound marketing and communications.

“Databricks is completely revolutionizing the concept of big data analytics by significantly simplifying the process and enabling customers to extract tremendous value from their data. They are no strangers to technology innovation, with their unique pedigree and industry leadership as the creators of Apache Spark,” adds Mariappan. “I am truly excited to be joining a company that is fundamentally changing the way businesses are turning their data into economic value.”

Databricks (databricks.com) is currently hiring for various positions within engineering, sales & marketing, field engineering and data science. Visit their careers page for more details: databricks.com/careers
