About us

Our mission is to make data more accessible.


We’re building a new way to interact with data.

Compared to other tools we’ve used, Neon is faster, more visual, more fluid, and more collaborative. It’s also fun to use—people in our closed alpha call it “addictive”.

We’re working with a handful of design partners who are giving us feedback so we can craft the best product we can.


David, Alex, and Ross have worked together for seven years, including at Cape Networks (David and Ross were co-founders). Cape was a beautifully designed analytics SaaS tool that made it easy for IT people to understand their network performance. Aruba Networks acquired Cape to be the face of their cloud software portfolio, and it became their fastest growing product.

Now, we’re taking every lesson we’ve learned—about how to bring lots of data to life and how to build a company—to solve a broader problem that we’ve had throughout our careers as analysts, engineers, PMs, and managers.

Here’s what you might find exciting


Imagine if every worker on earth could make better decisions, faster.

Helping people make sense of data can have an incredible, compounding impact across every team in every organisation in every part of the world.

Break new ground

The most popular data tools haven’t evolved much in the last 15 years. Advances in cloud-based data warehouses, data modeling and metrics, fast databases, and generative AI mean the time is ripe to reimagine what is possible and build something significantly better.

Hard problems

  • How to design a user interface that is powerful for expert data analysts and also accessible to more people?
  • How to decrease interaction latency to sub-150ms even for >100M record datasets for multiple users around the world?
  • How to ship fast without breaking things?

There’s more where those came from… :)


We all do our best, work as a team and have each others’ backs, take initiative, and have low egos. Here’s more about our culture.
