To create the most meaningful, collaborative, and abundant data resource in the world.

I’ve never worked on anything bigger and more exciting than what we’re doing here.

Our Enterprise Data Catalog

data.world is the modern catalog for data and analysis. Choose data.world to activate the hidden data workforce within your enterprise, multiply your data’s value, and create a data-driven culture—faster. The data catalog unites and classifies your data, metadata, and analysis—no matter where it lives.  The modern, intuitive user experience brings together employees of all roles, backgrounds, and skills to collaborate using the tools they already love. And the knowledge graph keeps data connected to everything people need to find, understand, and use it. As a result, your data, analysis, and expertise become more discoverable, trustworthy, and reusable.

Our Community

data.world is home to the world’s largest collaborative data community, which is free and open to the public. It’s where people discover data, share analysis, and team up on everything from social bot detection to award-winning data journalism. We use what we learn from this community to improve the enterprise product and vice versa. Want to work at data.world? Check out our openings.

Data Values and Open Courseware

Our team co-created the Manifesto for Data Practices, the most effective, ethical, and modern approach to data teamwork. More people signed the Manifesto for Data Practices in its first year than signed the Agile Manifesto in its first two years combined. In 2019 DataPractices.org  became a Linux Foundation Project. The vendor-neutral community features new, open courseware to help people and organizations improve data practices through inclusion, experimentation, accountability, and impact.

We are a Public Benefit Corporation

Most corporations are required to prioritize shareholder returns above all else. Not us. We are legally structured as a Public Benefit Corporation so we can pursue our mission and shareholder value with equal vigor. This ability is rare, powerful, and sustaining. Read our public benefit statement.

We are a Certified B Corporation

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. data.world was certified in 2016, and earned Best for the World Honors in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
