Who We Are
At Infochimps, we believe that making efficient decisions driven by big data will change the world for the better. As such, we create data and analytics solutions that are fast, flexible, and enterprise-ready while focusing on reducing risk and complexity. In short, we make big data easy for enterprises that value data-driven decisions.
Hiring the best and the brightest employees to create leading solutions for our customers is a top goal of ours. However, we wouldn’t be able to be where we are or do what we do without our chimpy culture. A typical day in the office involves solving some of the data world’s toughest questions, enjoying delicious food from local restaurants, and chatting with coworkers in our open office. While we definitely work hard, we also enjoy our days, laughing hard, having occasional Nerf battles, board game nights, and other shenanigans.
We are some of the top committers to GitHub. We’ve been regularly featured in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, GigaOm, TechCrunch, The Huffington Post, and ReadWriteWeb. We recycle, we host Big Data Love happy hours, and dress up for Fancy Friday (completely optional!). We are a team of extremely nice geniuses with helpfulness, curiosity, and expertise at the heart of all we do.
The Big Data market is predicted to grow 428%, and has been named a “Game Changer” by the National Intelligence Agency for Global Growth by 2030. In August 2013, we were strategically acquired by CSC (Computer Sciences Corporation) as the foundation of their Big Data line of business. This gives us the unique position of having the resources of a Fortune 500 company, while operating independently and preserving our nimble, rich, and strong start-up culture.
