In this episode: Christian Kleinerman, senior vice president of product at Snowflake.
Snowflake is a pioneering data warehouse platform that helps companies make sense of massive amounts of information in the public cloud.
It currently manages 250 petabytes of data. It runs 515 million daily workloads for customers across finance, health care, government, education, manufacturing and more. It raised a billion and a half dollars from investors, including Salesforce and Berkshire Hathaway.
Snowflake became one of the year’s biggest tech stories. In the fall of 2020, it went public -- becoming the biggest software IPO in history. The company’s share price doubled on the first day of trading.
Christian is the database expert behind Snowflake’s product evolution and growth. We’re going to talk with him about what the company is doing differently to organize, manage and retrieve massive sets of data -- and why, when he first heard about what the startup was doing, it sounded too good to be true.
Christian was previously the director of product management at YouTube. And before that, he led the data warehouse product and business at Microsoft.
