Big Data & Analytics

Vertica Company Overview

We’re the Vertica team, the brains behind the analytics database that is taking the industry by storm based in Cambridge, MA with offices in Pittsburgh, PA and around the world. Our engineering team solves interesting problems in distributed systems, fault tolerance, optimization, and machine learning. We control the whole engine. And our customers such as AT&T, Zynga, Uber, and others put in petabytes of data and ask whatever questions they want; it’s our job to make that easy and fast. It’s a practical twist around some tough theoretical problems.

We’re also part of Micro Focus, but we operate as an independent unit. Think of us as a mature start-up that has maintained that small-company atmosphere and hunger to achieve, while also enjoying the perks and backing of a large, stable company.
