Hello, we are Atlan! πŸ‘‹

A home for data teams around the world. 🏠 Atlan makes it easier for diverse data users – business users, product managers, analysts, and engineers – to collaborate effectively. (Think of what Salesforce is for sales teams or GitHub for engineering teams). (Check out our websiteproduct tour, and docs.)

Built for the humans of data, by the humans of data

At Atlan, we started as a data team ourselves tackling problems like national healthcare and poverty alleviation with data science. (Check out our TEDx talk and case studies.)

The problem: After working on 200+ data projects, we learned how tough it was to scale data teams. Data teams are one of the most interdisciplinary teams ever created. They're made up of analysts, data scientists, engineers, business users – diverse people with their own tooling preferences, skill sets, and "DNA" that need to come together. This leads to collaboration chaos.

We were awoken with crisis calls every second day for the minutest of issues β€” from troubleshooting why a number on a dashboard was incorrect to difficulties in getting access to the right data set! Atlan started with us building tools to make our own data team more agile.

These tools made our team 6x more agile, helping us take on amazing projects like building India's National Data Platform used by India's Prime Minister. The best part β€” this was built by an eight-member team, the fastest project of its kind to go live, in a record twelve months instead of the projected three years.

πŸ’‘ We asked, could the tooling we built for ourselves help data teams around the world? That's how Atlan was born. We're on a mission to help data teams around the world do their lives' best work.

Read our co-founder Prukalpa's article on the half-a-decade backstory that drives everything we do at Atlan and our journey of failing three times before we figured out the real solution.

πŸš€ We're growing fast

In the last few months, we have onboarded some dream customers, started working with some amazing partners, and watched as our team spread across 10+ countries.

Atlan was named a Gartner Cool Vendor in DataOps, one of the top three companies globally (and one of the fastest companies to make the list 🌏). We were also named in Gartner’s inaugural Market Guide for Active Metadata and as a Top 5 Global Innovator in DataOps by IDC.

We're backed by top investors (like Insight Partners, Sequoia, and Waterbridge) and the shapers of the modern data stack (including the founders and CEOs of Snowflake, Looker, Stitch, and DataRobot) as our early investors. πŸ…

We build with all our ❀️

We believe that data teams deserve fundamentally better software experiences. Data is chaos, but that doesn't mean that work should be! 🌟

Why is this role important for us? πŸ”—

    • At Atlan, we have a clearly defined customer profile β€” companies who've implemented the modern data stack, i.e. Snowflake, Redshift, Looker, etc.
    • Events marketing & account based marketing played an important role in Snowflake's supersonic growth between 2016 and 2018. We believe events will be an important channel in Atlan's next phase of growth.
    • You will spearhead a fully new channel that has a high success rate in our industry on our quest to become a category-defining company!

What will you do? πŸ€”

    • Turn events, both virtual and in-person, into a driving force to help Atlan become a home for data teams around the world.
    • You will own and develop our event strategy, from large splashes like conferences and webinars to closed-door settings like roundtables or wine and dines.
    • You will own end-to-end execution of events at Atlan and work with external agencies where needed to make each event successful. This includes events that Atlan attends, sponsors, and organizes.

What makes you a match for us? 😍

    • A demonstrated track record of organizing digital events and owning end-to-end execution of the same.
    • Detail orientation in organizing and curating events that people LOVE. The extra attention to detail is what changes the game!
    • Creativity to cut through the noise. Host the next event as a Twitter Spaces chat, anyone?
    • Ability to operate in an ambiguous and fast-paced work environment with integrity and accountability.
    • A solid understanding of marketing channels for distribution and community marketing is a big plus.
Do your life’s best work at Atlan πŸš€

At Atlan, our mission is to help data teams do their life's best work. Inside Atlan, our goal is to help Atlanians do their life's best work while at Atlan and reach their Ikigai.

We'd normally invite potential Atlanians to our office to meet our team and understand our culture. But given the global pandemic, we've opened up our internal team handbook instead, which is a great read about our values and principles and how we think about growth and internal practices as we build a dream team.
