Evidence (YC S21) is hiring engineers to build a web framework for data teams

About Evidence

Evidence is an open source web framework that’s designed for data analysts. It’s a modern alternative to drag-and-drop BI tools and Jupyter notebooks.

Evidence enables data analysts to build automated reports, analysis and tools that feel like they came from the graphics department at a top-tier publication. All with skills that data analysts already have: SQL and markdown.

The founders, Sean and Adam, spent the last five years building a large data science operation at a leading financial firm. We’re driven by deep empathy for both data analysts and the decision makers who rely on them.

We are a fully remote YC-backed company, founded in Toronto. We are well funded and backed by leading silicon valley VCs, and some of the best founders and technical leaders in the industry.
