Here at SnapLogic, we launched our very first Summer Internship program. This summer we employed five interns, each working in a different area of the company: Rakesh Dammalapati, a Professional Services Intern; Dave Gan, an Engineering Intern; Gracie Walters, a Human Resources (HR) Intern; Michael Westra, a Business Development (BD) Intern; and Natalie Wiser, a Marketing Intern.
All five of these interns got to be part of an up-and-coming startup company in Silicon Valley. They not only gained that well desired real world experience, but the internship also came with a lot of profitable perks. The interns were given their own managers in which they were able to establish a professional relationship that taught them about the company’s values of innovation, intensity and integrity. They were also given the opportunity to meet with some of the top executives of the company who shared details of their past career paths. Each executive shared valuable stories, advice and resources that will give the interns a huge advantage when they start making decisions about their own careers.
With the summer coming to an end, we asked our interns to reflect on their past 12 weeks spent here at SnapLogic. Here is what they said:
Another release is in the books – today we announced the Summer 2016 SnapLogic platform update, along with several additions and improvements to our Snap library. The release brings additions for big data integration, self-service integration, and enterprise governance and control.
As our VP Engineering Vaikom Krishnan put it:
“SnapLogic continues to break down the barriers between data and application integration in the enterprise with a converged platform that is built for self-service. The Summer 2016 release further enhances our Snap library and resources for Snap developers to help support our vision of ‘anything, anytime, anywhere’ integration.”
Highlights of this “Snappy” release include:
New Snaps for Apache Hive and Teradata
Major updates to Snaps for Anaplan and Tableau
Enhancements to the Mapper Snap that make it faster and simpler to search, filter and map the entries in a complex schema tree
User-defined pipeline parameters can now be logged and retained with runtime history in order for administrators to audit API usage and quickly debug pipeline performance issues
A new, seamless way to auto-shard documents across all nodes in a SnapLogic data processing Snaplex, leveraging the power of all nodes and boosting data integration performance
Users can now limit invocation of triggered tasks to one instance at a time for more granular control and to avoid overloading resources.
We’re also excited for the launch of the new Snap developer site. It’s easy to use, mobile-friendly and full of practical guidance for our customers and partners building and maintaining their own Snaps.

Today we announced that SnapLogic has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Bay Area News Group. What’s particularly significant about this award is that, “it is based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement.” The survey measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
According to their website, the 100 Top Workplaces, “are not only better places to work but are more likely to be successful than peer organizations.” Here’s what SnapLogic’s founder and CEO Gaurav Dhillon had to say about the news: Check out our website for more information about Life at SnapLogic and our open positions.
