Amperity helps people use data to serve their customers.  Underneath this simple statement lies the monumental challenge of building an automatically-scaling system that understands customer data of any variety.   The size and complexity of this mission requires an engineering team who can solve some of the most sophisticated problems in distributed systems, machine learning, big data, data science and visualization, and product design.

More than just Marketing technology, we help world class brands reorient how they think about their business; from focusing on stores or products to focusing on a customer's experience through all of their brand interactions.  With multiple US patents already awarded, Amperity helps brands know who their customers are, decide where and how to grow their business, and serve personalized customer experiences at every touchpoint. Our customers include Alaska Airlines, Kroger, Lucky Brand, Kendra Scott, Planet Fitness, Kenneth Cole, e.l.f. Cosmetics, Seattle Sounders FC, Crocs, Stanley, Endeavour Drinks, and many more.

Amperity is a hyper-growth SaaS company that is leading the way in customer data management. Since our founding in 2016 and launching our first commercial product in 2017, Amperity operates in rarified air, growing 2.5X YoY since launch. 

In just three years, we’ve raised nearly $90M in total funding. Amperity has two headquarters - our founding office in Seattle and our second office in New York City, though we’re committed to fostering a healthy distributed working environment for the foreseeable future.

Come join us on our mission to help people use data to serve the customer!
