About DataHero

We love to push the boundaries of design and technology and have fun doing it. We have fantastic office space in San Francisco's SoMa district with plenty of snacks and drinks on hand (including a dedicated, hard-working beer fridge).  When we’re not brainstorming new ways to make our users look like heroes, we're conquering the climbing wall, enjoying monthly team activities, or engaging in spirited conversations at our Friday Beer o'clock outings (though the topics frequently drift towards bacon or sports).

Founded by Big Data veteran Chris Neumann and consumer experience expert Jeff Zabel, DataHero is designed to enable users of any ability to quickly and easily understand the data that matters most to them. DataHero allows users to combine data from multiple SaaS sources, use smart visualizations and automatic analysis to gain insights, and collaborate with team members by sharing charts and dashboards, all through the convenience of a browser.
