About data.world

data.world was founded in early 2016 and has raised $33 million from leading investors. The company was started by serial entrepreneur, Brett Hurt, and an experienced co-founding team that previously held leadership roles at HomeAway and Bazaarvoice. data.world is a B Corp with a mission to build the world’s most collaborative, abundant, and meaningful data resource. We provide a platform that improves community, connectivity, and collaboration around data. We improve the “first-mile” of data work, where 80% of a data project's time is spent and which is riddled with inefficiencies. We’ve been named to the Austin Business Journal’s Best Places to Work list every year since the company was founded and were named to the Austin Chamber of Commerce’s A-List of Hottest Startups in 2017.

We value transparency – we explain our decisions, how we arrived at them, and share our Board updates with the team. We take pride in what we do – we commit, and we deliver. We are not afraid of mistakes – we take calculated risks and strategically push boundaries. Our focus is fierce, but it’s not all hard work. You might see us bouldering, at an American Ninja Warrior taping, or at the Drafthouse.
