We’re a small team making a big impact

Alation’s enterprise collaborative data platform empowers employees inside of data-driven enterprises to find, understand, and use the right data for better, faster business decisions. Alation combines the power of machine learning with human insight to automatically capture information about what the data describes, where the data comes from, who’s using it and how it’s used.

Alation is based in sunny Redwood City and funded by Andreessen Horowitz, Bloomberg Beta, Costanoa Ventures, Data Collective, General Catalyst Partners, Harmony Partners, Icon Ventures, and Stanford StartX. Customers include Albertsons, eBay, Pfizer, Square, and some of the world’s largest finance firms.

See how you can make a difference

At Alation, you will work with a dedicated, diverse group of people who are just as passionate as you are about making an impact. 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 strive to maintain a flat organization where everyone is treated as a peer and is encouraged to voice his and her opinions. To do this, we have weekly Show & Tells to learn about the cool projects others are working on, Brownbag Lunches where friends of Alation (e.g. execs from other companies) share their career experiences, and walking meetings with colleagues and managers (as well as with prospective new hires—a lot of our interviews are walking meetings so be sure to wear comfortable shoes!).

If you’re looking for a fast-paced environment with high impact and rewarding work, now is the time to join Alation. We’re growing fast, have amazing customers, and are creating an impactful product. We are currently hiring for the following roles:
