Cascade is a new, still-under-the-radar company led by repeat entrepreneurs and backed by top investors.
Cascade's mission is to give modern analysts the tools they need to tell beautiful, deep, elegant stories with data. Non-technical business analysts have not gotten a tool upgrade in years — Cascade unlocks the analyst's skillset by allowing them to combine data of all kinds and sizes, manipulate and explore datasets, run sophisticated operations and publish the results in a story-like format. Unlike work done in a spreadsheet, analysis in Cascade is repeatable, auditable, deeply collaborative and automatically up-to-date. Data stories live online, ready for others to explore and build on.
Cascade is backed by First Round Capital, Redpoint, Susa and other top investors.
Cascade is looking to fill its first go-to-market role, an Analytical Sales Engineer. As a collection of tools for data analysts, Cascade provides the building blocks for many types of analysis to occur in an automated, repeatable way. However, those building blocks need to be translated into example models and analysis that is relevant to each customer. That's where an Analytical Sales Engineer comes in, who can understand the needs of a customer, build relevant analysis that demonstrates Cascade's capabilities, then train data analysis on how to use the platform themselves.
