About Us
dbt Labs was founded in 2016 to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Since then, we've grown to become one of the most respected brands in the analytics industry. Our product, dbt, is used by thousands of companies.

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 20,000+ people and 8,000 companies who are using our ideas, products, and workflows to conduct analytics, including Lyft, Monzo, GitLab, Snowflake, the ACLU, Amazon, JetBlue, and RentTheRunway. Our product, dbt, has come to be synonymous with the practice of analytics engineering, defining an entire industry. We're backed by top investors including Andreessen Horowitz and Sequoia Capital, recently raising our series C: read the announcement here!
