The web is the world’s greatest information source - literally and figuratively. It contains more valuable information than all annual reports and trend analyses rolled into one. However, the web is also the world’s greatest source of information chaos: that’s why it’s difficult to extract qualitative data.

Founded in Groningen in 2012, has been structuring relevant digital actions into concrete insights that are used worldwide by leading organizations such as PayPal, Statistics Netherlands, United Nations, GoDaddy, Mollie, and the investment industry. We’re growing fast and we’re always on the lookout for new talent!

    Our team

    Our team consists of a wide range of professionals: data scientists, data support engineers, developers, designers, account managers and the list goes on. It’s a blend of seasoned data engineers and developers who have been working here for years, and ambitious graduates who joined the team while they were students and have become an inseparable part of ever since.

    Our slogan is “Work hard, work together and help each other out, always.” When we aren’t working hard, we’re eating ice cream (anytime of the day or year) and playing board games, ping-pong or American pool.
