Calif. software firm is expanding to Nashua
The Palo Alto-based company, founded in 2008, pioneered the business use of Hadoop software, an open-source distribution of Apache Hadoop for commercial and noncommercial customers.
“We chose Nashua because of its proximity to the Boston metro market and easy access to skilled software engineers” said Frank Liva, the company’s senior engineering director, in a news release. “Many experienced software engineers in Silicon Valley move from job to job, and we find that New Hampshire attracts a very stable and committed work force and offers a great quality of life.”
The company recently made headlines when it hired a new CEO last month. Business Insider, which called the company “one of the most watched big data startups in the Valley,” said the appointment of Tom Reilly as the company’s new chief indicated it might be preparing for a public stock offering.
Cloudera raised $65 million in its fifth round of venture capital funding in December, bringing the company’s total funds to $140 million, according to Venture Beat.
