The Data Engineering Company

Data Engineering, Evolved

For years, we’ve focused on creating systems that store more data, and process more data, than ever before. As we built more and more systems, we found the missing piece of technology was the system that helped us build more than ever before.

As Data Engineers, we love building pipelines. What we don’t love is:

  • How long it takes to implement the simple things
  • How brittle pipelines can be
  • Edge cases, parameter tuning, backfills, and more

Our goals in creating the Ascend Unified Data Engineering Platform:

  • 10x faster build velocity
  • Automated maintenance
  • Smarts to do the rest (aka, “DataAware™ intelligence”)

As our world becomes more data-driven, data teams must have more intelligent, autonomous platforms to keep them moving faster than the volume of data itself. We are working on building our Unified Data Engineering Platform to solve just that. We help data teams build faster and maintain less, so that they can spend more time driving innovation for their company.
