About Us

Here at Amplify, we are on a mission to help every company become a data company. We believe that effective data distribution is the missing key to unlocking the value in data, so we set out to build a user-friendly software platform to help companies create, maintain, and distribute their valuable data products. Today we are a well-funded, seed-stage company backed by premier VCs.

Prior to starting Amplify, we were data and startup leaders who have together successfully scaled a 400 person startup and run a data team at a Fortune 500 company. While we are based in the northeast-US today, we are believers in remote-work. Let’s hear from you!
