Alation was founded in 2012 when a PhD engineer from Google, a designer from Apple, and an executive from Oracle teamed up to help people to connect with the data they need. Today, our team consists of creators and communicators with varied backgrounds. From Stanford and Cal, big companies and one-man startups, the United States and abroad, we all came together to work toward a shared vision of a world where informed decision-making is the norm -- we are incredibly driven to make data more accessible in every industry.
We’re based in sunny Redwood City, CA and funded by top investors like Andreessen Horowitz, Data Collective, and Costanoa Venture Capital. Our customers include some of the world’s largest organizations, with thousands of employees and petabytes of data.
