Dataiku was founded in 2013 by Florian Douetteau (CEO), Marc Batty (COO), Clément Sténac (CTO), and Thomas Cabrol (CDO). Early on, the company focused on building a best-of-breed data science platform that would enable organisations large and small to streamline the process from raw data to running predictive solutions in production. They sought to bring together data management (transformation, cleaning, preparation), machine learning (modeling and optimization), and production features (REST API, monitoring, etc.) into a single collaborative platform.
In December 2014, Dataiku raised a seed round of €3 million; it then went on to raise a $14 million Series A round led by FirstMark Capital in October 2016. In addition to recognition from investors, Dataiku has garnered attention from analysts and, with more than 100 global customers, the worldwide market. With its latest round of funding, Dataiku continues to grow, employing more than 90 people between its headquarters in New York and offices in Paris, London, and Los Angeles.
