ABOUT US

Simon Data was founded in 2015 by a team of successful serial entrepreneurs. We're a data-first marketing platform startup, and we approach our work seriously; we tackle problems in a scrappy and disruptive fashion, yet we build for scale to support our clients at big data volume.

An Insider's view of Simon Data

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s an exciting time to be at Simon - we’re expanding rapidly and there’s a lot of opportunity for personal growth. I love that everyone here, from junior folks to the executive team, is super hands-on. We work hard and we’re scrappy, but we know how to have fun - my favorite Simon tradition is going to karaoke during our quarterly offsites.
