What We Do

We take employee satisfaction and growth seriously. We also expect a lot in return.

At Umbel engineering, you would be working with a team that is motivated by quality and the opportunity to learn from each other every day. You should expect to iterate quickly and release often. We select our tools with care, and strive to build the most clear and stable foundations for our projects. Do you think there's a more appropriate tool? Convince us, and we'll use it. Don’t expect to be confined to a single project or part of the stack; we use a complex and distributed stack to implement a multi-faceted platform. Here is a small sample of the products we have built here at Umbel:

  • Digital Genome a profile-centric data-aggregation and visualization tool
  • Umbel Capture a distributed system that handles millions of events and actions every day
  • Pilosa a distributed, decentralized in-memory index with bitmap compression algorithms
  • Activators stand-alone applications that are compiled and deployed on the fly
  • Data Pipeline a platform for bulk data ingestion and automated imports
  • Reach Extension a process that leverages our Digital Genome data and proprietary algorithms to drive record-breaking marketing results
Who We Are

We believe data will be the most important asset of the future.

That’s why we built the best platform to harness the world’s data while ethically respecting and consciously defending the data rights of all. We are passionate about making data beautiful and actionable so that you are empowered to improve your business, improve your self and improve the world. We are converting massive amounts of people-based data into addressable, actionable and authentic relationships, and we need your help!
