Big Data isn’t a problem. It’s an opportunity.
At Alation, we help people find, understand, and trust data. So they not only excel in their work — they drive value for their enterprise, team, and role. In the words of one customer, “Alation makes me look like a rockstar.”
We help companies like Pfizer and Salesforce empower their people with the best data every day. As a platform for innovation, Alation helps customers create game-changing solutions (like a program for early-stage disease detection with Pfizer) and connect people to great data in less time (like Salesforce, whose analysts can now find data 35% faster). And we’re just getting started.
With more than $340M in funding - valued at over $1.7 billion and 450+ customers with household names - Alation is poised to capitalize on data as an opportunity. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Alation was named to Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces list for the fourth time, and our exceptional Glassdoor rating reflects a culture that makes coming to work each day a joy. Do you want to join a team that welcomes new ideas, supports your growth, and recognizes your unique value?
What does the Connected Sheets Team do?
We build the Alation Connected Sheets (ACS), which is a platform that connects Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel with Alation. ACS helps the users to fetch data from various Alation Data Sources into their favourite spreadsheets. Users can set automatic schedules to keep the data up to date with the sources. ACS catalogs the spreadsheet information in the Alation Data Catalog, making it easier to discover spreadsheets across the organization. Our team consists of highly talented engineers who are located in different parts of the United States and India who come together for biweekly lunches and enjoyable offsites.
