About 5X

5X lets you build your own data platform in minutes, not months. Think of us as AWS + App Store for the modern data stack.

We’ve raised a $2.4m seed round from Flybridge angels like Olivier (CEO Datadog), Maxime (CEO Preset, Airflow), Julien (CTO Marquez, Creator Parquet), Benn Stancil (Founder Mode), Soumyadeb (Founder Rudderstack) and other prominent angel investors.

The modern data stack is highly fragmented. The analogy we use is that all the vendors are selling ‘car parts’. Imagine walking into a Honda and instead of selling you a Civic they sell you an engine and you have to build your own car. That's exactly what the experience looks like today.

Companies need to sign up with multiple vendors - taking 4 months+ to set up, spend 20% of engineering resources on maintenance and have a poor experience switching between multiple vendors. 5X consolidates data vendors into a single platform with 3 pillars

Provision - Build an end to end custom data platform based on your industry, use case, size and budget

Operate - Single IDE to operate all your vendors so you don't need to switch between multiple tools on a daily basis

Optimize - The first ever cost optimization suite across all of your data vendors. Ensure you get the most out of every $ you spend.

Customers using 5X are hilariously more efficient than traditional data teams.

Join a fast-growing team to help customers leverage data infrastructure without the complexity.
