Our mission is to revolutionize the speed and integrity of data collaboration.

We’re creating a shared standard so we finally have a common language. Our powerful platform, Great Expectations, enables teams to have confidence in the quality of their data so they can focus on actionable, real-world insights.

Our Story

Great Expectations was created in 2017 as a side project between two longtime friends, Abe Gong (CEO) and James Campbell (CTO). After encountering many of the same pain points around data quality, they independently arrived at the same conclusion: data practitioners needed a better way to test and document their data. At the time, Abe was leading Superconductive Health, a healthcare data consultancy, and James was a researcher at the Laboratory for Analytical Sciences. They jumped at the chance to work together and started collaborating on Great Expectations as an open source project.

The platform was launched at the Strata Data & AI Conference in 2018, which kicked off a groundswell of support, buzz, and contributions. Data engineers, scientists, and analysts loved the flexibility, extensibility, and expressiveness of the platform. Non-technical data stakeholders loved the way the data documentation enabled visibility and collaboration. Within a few months, it was clear that a rare momentum was building around data quality and that Great Expectations was at the forefront of the movement.

In 2019, we pivoted our focus to building Great Expectations. We raised a first round of venture capital and began actively building the open source community around Great Expectations—which became one of the fastest-growing data communities in the world.

Today, the Superconductive team is growing rapidly. We're backed by some of the best open source and data infrastructure investors in the industry. We're pursuing a product-led, developer-first path to commercialization and building a SaaS product that augments the Great Expectations open source framework to provide a holistic organizational solution for data quality. We're a people-first team, prioritizing individual professional development and providing unique career opportunities as the company scales.

Does that seem like a fit for you? We'd love to hear from you!
