Enigma was founded in 2012, based on the realization that there was tremendous potential in using public data to understand how the world works, and that it is untapped because the data is highly fragmented and disconnected. Enigma set out to change that by building and organizing one of the largest collections of public data in the world. Our big coming out party was winning TechCrunch Disrupts Battlefield in 2013. Our vision has remained steadfast. We want to empower people to interpret, and improve, the world around them. We have expanded our ability to realize this vision by combining our massive public data repository with an ecosystem of software and tools designed to link, resolve, enhance and apply data to help global-scale companies take on some of their hardest problems.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.
