The Company
This is the age of information. Data has evolved into a commodity that can be bought or sold. In 2007, IDC measured the digital universe at 281 exabytes and predicted that it would reach 1800 by this year, expanding at a rate of almost 1.6 times per year. Because of this rapid expansion and the effort required to set up the infrastructure necessary to deliver large quantities of data to users, there has long been a gap between data and the people who need it. 1010data bridges this gap by delivering large-scale, low-risk, high-speed data warehousing and analytics solutions.

Established in 2000 by several pioneers of large-scale financial data systems, 1010data drew on its founders' Wall Street experience and harnessed new and emerging technologies to create the foundations for today's multi-faceted, infinitely scalable database system. 1010data's technology is designed to handle multi-terabyte databases efficiently and reliably, and allow users to perform analyses that are difficult or impossible to do otherwise.

For a decade, 1010data has provided analytics, business intelligence, and data warehousing services to leading companies from finance, retail, and other sectors. Our clients understand that the system's scalability ensures end-user performance is not compromised and data never outgrows the technology.

1010data is a young but well-established company that offers the excitement and growth opportunity of start-up without the risk. Careers here offer camaraderie, challenging problems, fast development cycles, and the chance to interact with and produce products for some of the largest, most innovative corporations in the world.
