At Soda, we are pioneering the fastest-growing category in the data and analytics space, called data operations. We deliver a data monitoring platform that allows teams to define what good data looks like and resolve issues swiftly, before they have a downstream impact. This transparency and ease creates trust - in each other, and in the data. We’re an international team headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.
