What we are building
Datafold is a proactive data observability platform that helps Data Teams move faster and with higher confidence by automating data quality analysis, monitoring, and common repetitive tasks in data engineering workflow. It’s a category-defining product in a rapidly growing data domain.
As businesses increasingly rely on Analytics and Machine Learning, Data teams face unprecedented complexity of data and infrastructure. Lack of visibility into data quality and performance of data pipelines causes massive inefficiencies and costly business mistakes. You can read more about our vision and our view of the data ecosystem in our blog.
If you are not very familiar with the data domain, the nature of our product is similar to APM tools such as Prometheus, Datadog, and New Relic: we collect and integrate metadata about our customers' data infrastructure, pipelines and datasets and provide valuable insights.
Headquartered in San Francisco, our product has been rapidly evolving and is used by hundreds of data professionals from companies including Patreon, Thumbtack, Dutchie, Truebill, Faire, and more.
We are a highly technical team with deep expertise in the data domain: our founders built real-time telemetry systems and scaled some of the world’s largest data platforms at Autodesk and Lyft. Our company is backed by top-tier investors including YCombinator & NEA. Datafold is an early-stage startup with a team across multiple continents and time zones.
Datafold is looking for an experienced and inventive Visual Designer to join our Growth Team.
