About Us | Mode

We're on a mission

Businesses use Mode to turn data into a force of gravity that brings people—data experts and domain experts alike—together to solve their hardest problems and drive action.

By analysts,
for analysts

Mode was founded in 2013 by Derek Steer, Benn Stancil, and Josh Ferguson. While working in analytics at Yammer, they saw Amazon Redshift and other cloud-based data warehouses making it possible for companies of all sizes—not just tech giants—to gather and analyze data.

The trio recognized the need for a collaborative platform designed for people who work on the frontier of data analysis, one that would streamline analyst workflows and make it possible to share insightful and actionable data across entire organizations. And with that, Mode was born.
