Redundancies and freeze hires are spreading in Silicon Valley, but Databricks is still recruiting a lot. The data management company, last valued at $ 38 billion last August, aims to end the year with 5,500 employees, up from 3,000 in early 2022, said Amy Reichanatar, CEO of Databricks, in an interview with The Information.

The nine-year-old, which in the past recruited many such as Salesforce, Google and Facebook, the parent Meta Platforms, is focused on hiring engineers, especially retailers, she said. (Salesforce and Meta are reported to be among the major technology companies delay or freezing of employment.)

There may be fewer technology companies working hard to hire to compete with this year, but recruiting while others are responding poses its own challenges. Reichanadter is beginning to notice that technicians from larger companies are becoming increasingly cautious about transferring ships to smaller companies amid widespread layoffs. “We definitely see more conservative decision-making,” Reichanatar said.
