About us

Passionate about data and the cloud since 2011.

Matillion is data transformation for cloud data warehouses

Matillion exists because we believe in a few fundamental truths:

  • Every business needs to compete using data
  • Given the volume and complexity of data, and the speed and scale needed to handle it, the only place you can compete effectively (and cost-effectively) is in the cloud
  • In the cloud, you must have three elements in order to take full advantage of your data and gain fast time to insight:
    1. Your data – all of it
    2. A cloud data warehouse
    3. A way to bring that data into the cloud data warehouse, and transform it to make it useful for analytics

We provide a complete data integration and transformation solution that is purpose-built for the cloud and cloud data warehouses.

How did we get here?

  • 2011

    Matthew Scullion and Ed Thompson, believing that the future of business intelligence is in the cloud, leave their comfortable jobs to start their own company. 

    
In the countryside outside of Manchester, UK, Ed starts writing code for the main builder of Matillion's first product. Matthew comes up with the Matillion core values. 


    Matillion provides turn-key business intelligence analytics as a service in the AWS cloud. In other words, they build a ton of data warehouses in the cloud.

    August 2013
    After an all-night hackathon in Knutsford, Matillion migrates its BI tool and services to Amazon Redshift. They become experts in handling data and BI on the new platform. 

  • 2014
    After building tons of cloud data warehouses, running countless BI jobs in Amazon Redshift, and getting buckets full of data ready for analytics, Matillion realizes that:
    • Complex data transformation needs the speed, scale, and economics of the cloud
    • No existing tool really ETL in the cloud well
