Collaboration is a key tenet of our day to day. Everyone is on the same page: we’re scrappy, we don’t mind working hard, and no one is too big or small to take on a task. People like working together and that's huge. It makes a difference day to day and big picture. It's hard to beat.

I have been a part of different teams in my four years at Dataminr, and have seen the company and our mission from different angles. Every single department values collaboration and coordination of efforts. Everyone pitches in and gets their hands dirty, even if it means doing something that's not in their job description.
