What do you think about Snowflake

Are they hiring? Because I want to go work there. TD is a train wreck.
Snowflake built an easy to use, scalable cloud database that customers love right in front of Teradata's eyes. Teradata's CTO was asleep at the wheel and dismissed it as a toy. The CEOs and Board were clueless. Teradata never took cloud serious. Now they are paying the price. What does the market think about SNOW and TDC? SNOW - $50B Market Cap, TDC - $4B Market Cap. End of story. #TDCGotSnowBalled
