A need for speed

We envision a world where data is at the center of every
important decision. A world where big data is lightning fast!


Why we started Firebolt

We believe in

Are we making the most of our data?

With the global mindset that “data is the new oil”, everyone is busy gathering as much data as they can. But are we really properly using this data?

The big data / small insights paradox

If it took Google a few minutes (or hours) to get your search results, would you still use it? The thing is, slow user experiences make us stop using products. As a business, our ability to extract insights out of our data is what makes us live or die. But when every query returns painfully slow results, we simply don’t ask as many questions.

Firebolt is here to fix all that

We’re here to enable business users to ask any question and get results, instantly. With Firebolt’s data warehouse as a service we offer business users extreme speed at any scale, enabling them to ask many more questions. And then some more. Until they discover something truly amazing.

Great product engineering

Many people ask us - is there magic involved in your technology? So yes, there’s real magic here and it’s driven by our product and engineering wizards.
Firebolt is based on the latest developments and research in the field of big data analytics. This enabled us to create the world’s most powerful cloud data warehouse and offer it as a service. Mix that up with a relentless pursuit for a superb product design and you have a platform that is slick, easy to use and gets the job done faster than anything else out there.

The human aspect

As much as we love great engineering, at the end of the day, it’s all about the people. We are first and foremost customer driven (even before being data driven) and are obsessed with providing the best overall experience for our customers.
Our customers, partners and of course our team serve as our compass on the path to data glory. We are here to change the way the world consumes data and we’re determined to do it while having a blast! :)

The market in which Firebolt operates is huge if you consider the valuations of Snowflake and Databricks. Even more importantly, it is growing rapidly as the migration from on-premise data warehouse platforms to the cloud is gaining momentum, and as more and more companies rely on data for their operations and are building data applications.”
