Today, enterprises are spending heavily on a range of data products and stitching them together to get some semblance of a data fabric. These data products require significant integration and customization work, resulting in a final product that lacks flexibility and exposes multiple risk vectors.

We saw a need for a data platform that humanizes access to data, breaks data silos, and transforms companies as they step towards data democratization and gaining business insights in real-time...These are some of the reasons why we founded The Modern Data Company.

The EA is responsible for prospecting and developing enterprise client relationships to solve real data challenges using The Modern Data family of products.

About The Modern Data Company

Founded in 2018, The Modern Data Company began with the realization that enterprise-wide data access has been siloed. Data engineers and database administrators have been the longstanding data gatekeepers who funneled data to analysts and data scientists. We aim to change that by freeing enterprises to make better data-driven decisions by democratizing access to data. When all employees, irrespective of their technical skills or background, can easily explore and analyze enterprise data, then both productivity and market expansion are realized at a faster pace.

Modern Data is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
