Work at Metabase

About Metabase

Metabase is bringing data tools with the elegance and simplicity of consumer products to the crufty world of enterprise business intelligence. We’re taking what we’ve learned building out the data infrastructure and analytics systems for Expa’s portfolio companies and releasing it to the world. We provide an opinionated open source starting point for how companies should measure, analyze and share their data as well as a suite of tools to deal with the complexity that arises as they grow.

Working at Metabase

We’re small, engineering led and you’ll be joining at a pivotal time in the company. You’ll get:

  • Amazing views from our beautiful downtown San Francisco office.
  • Great benefits and substantial equity in a venture funded company.
  • You’ll get to work with a wide range of companies already using our product, and have exposure to new companies being formed at Expa and have a birds eye view of how the best repeat entrepreneurs (including founders from Uber, Foursquare, AddThis) work.
