Who we are

At dbt Labs, we have developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics.

Specifically, we believe that:
-> Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic
-> Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers
-> Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open-source software
-> Analytic code itself?-?not just analytics tools?-?will increasingly be open source

It turns out that a lot of other people believe this too! Over the course of the past several years we've built a community of 9,000+ people and 3,000 companies who are using our ideas, products, and workflows to conduct analytics, including Lyft, Monzo, GitLab, Snowflake, the ACLU, Amazon, JetBlue, and RentTheRunway.
