About Prophecy

Prophecy is a rapidly growing startup that has solved the false dichotomy of having to choose between visual tools and code. We offer a self-service data transformation platform for the enterprise that provides a complete product, combining the power of code with the usability of visual ETL tools to deliver a zero-compromise solution. With Prophecy, data analysts can serve themselves and transform data at parity with the best programming data engineers, while data engineers can build and share standards and focus on other higher value activities. Prophecy breaks down the silos between these two crucial groups enabling greater communication and collaboration.

Prophecy is trusted by top Fortune 500 firms to replace their legacy ETL tools as they re-platform to the Cloud or Apache Spark. Fresh off our Series B funding, We're backed by top VCs and on the path to establishing ourselves as the leader on the cloud.
