We’re a small team making a big impact. See how you can make a difference.

People do their best work when they believe in what they’re doing, are challenged by their work, work with people who complement their skills, and are empowered to do what they think is right.

– Satyen, CEO

Empower people to access data

Today, leaders in corporations, non-profits, governments, and the military make decisions (with lives and livelihoods in the balance) based either on instinct, or on analyses generated over weeks or months.

Meanwhile, anyone off the street can look up George Clooney’s birthday in 25 milliseconds using Google. At Alation, we offer that English In / Answers Out experience to those asking the most important questions, so they can make better decisions and build a better world.

Work with a passionate, supportive team

At Alation, you will work with a dedicated, diverse group of people who are just as passionate as you are about making an impact. Our team consists of creators and communicators with varied backgrounds: from Stanford and Cal, big companies and one-man startups, the United States and abroad.

We strive to maintain a flat organization where everyone is treated as a peer and is encouraged to voice his and her opinions. To do this, we have weekly Show & Tells to learn about the cool projects others are working on, Brownbag Lunches where friends of Alation (e.g. execs from other companies) share their career experiences, and walking meetings with colleagues and managers (as well as with prospective new hires—a lot of our interviews are walking meetings so be sure to wear comfortable shoes!).

Be challenged and empowered

Take charge of your own career: set personal goals and work on exciting projects that are out of your comfort zone (both within and across departments). Think like an owner and make bold moves—if you think hard, try hard, and screw up, that’s ok (happens to us all the time). We’re a highly collaborative bunch so you’ll have plenty of support: ask questions and ask for help, brainstorm ideas, and experience that “Mission: Impossible” feeling of working together to achieve something really hard.

If you’re looking for a fast-paced environment with high impact and rewarding work, now is the time to join Alation. We’re growing fast, have amazing customers, and are creating an impactful product.

Getting Here and Getting Started

We’ve also got you covered for basic necessities that help make life easier. On your first day of work, we set you up with great equipment, and from time to time, gift you great company swag. And we make your commute easier — use public transportation and we’ll help offset the cost.
