Industry analysts predict that within 10 years, 4 out of 5 decisions will be machine assisted. Currently, only 1% of data is even being accessed, let alone leveraged to make machine assisted decisions. As the adoption of advanced analytics, machine learning, IoT and artificial intelligence continues to accelerate, data availability will be the primordial ingredient required for implementations to be successful at scale.

In enterprises, we have reached a tipping point in data access where the effort involved by IT in making data accessible is far exceeding the value the business can create with the data. Business analysts and data scientists who are tasked with extracting value from data are simply wanting to make real-time decisions, glean insights instantly, and monetize information, however the volume, complexity, and exponential growth of data has led to an environment where we are making decisions on only a fraction of the data and where it takes 4-6 weeks and millions of dollars to fulfill even a simple data request.

Molecula is a Cloud Data Access platform that modernizes how organizations simplify, accelerate, and improves control over their large, fragmented and geographically disparate big data to optimize for the era of Advanced Analytics, Machine Learning, and the Internet of Things. Molecula’s unique ability to deconstruct data into highly compressed representations allows enterprises to securely access and query data at unprecedented speeds (at least 1000x) and with a fraction of the hardware (10x-100x reduction), ushering in an entirely new paradigm for continuous, real-time data analysis.

An Insider's view of Molecula

Our office in downtown Austin has an incredible energy. When I walk in the space I feel the potential of our technology and the community we've building around it.

Total Rewards & People Ops Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm most excited about creating UI that makes data more accessible and digestible for both non-technical and technical folks. Our UI empowers non-techies to understand trends and gain a high level view of what their data represents and allows more technical people to dig in deeper to all of their data without having a ton of setup work.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I was making the decision to join, H.O. said to me, “this is going to be like getting 100 MBAs at once,” and he was not wrong. The career growth I’ve experienced during my time at Molecula has undoubtedly changed my life’s trajectory. I attribute this to my teammates, the problems we are solving, and the pace at which we operate.


VP of Product

What is your vision for the company?

We see a future where data is as ubiquitous as air and water and where any human or machine that needs input to make decisions can access any and all the data she, he or it needs. This ability to instantly access data will become a basic right and will lay the foundation for a super evolution that unlocks human potential in ways we can not fathom.

Higinio "H.O."


How does the company support your career growth?

The Molecula leadership team empowers everyone within the organization to explore their passions even if it's not within their job description. I started as an intern and didn't realize what an amazing experience it would be. I'm so happy I accepted my full-time offer and am an integral part of building the company's Sales and Marketing processes.
