What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

The availability of public data is growing at exponential rates, creating unprecedented opportunities for data analytics and information arbitrage. The Vertical Knowledge (VK) platform enables our customers to access and understand information that is publicly available but very challenging to identify and capture at scale. It provides organizations in both public and private sectors with a significant strategic advantage, transforming the way they discover, collect, and deploy Publicly Available Information (PAI) to solve their most challenging problems. We are constantly adapting to a rapidly changing landscape, and our customers depend on our innovation, proprietary technology, expertise, and support to consistently deliver the value of PAI.
At VK we hire talented people and then give them the opportunity and support to make an impact. Working at VK means standing at the forefront of technology that enables organizations across the private and public sectors to harness PAI (Publicly Available Information, also known as public data) – the fastest-growing type of alternative data in the world. 
As the saying goes, when everyone’s digging for oil, it’s good to be in the drill business.  Data is today’s oil and VK builds the most sophisticated and powerful drilling technology in the market.  
VK is based in Chagrin Falls, outside of Cleveland, OH. (home of Calvin & Hobbes and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). We are a mission-driven organization that takes pride in knowing that our work has the potential to literally save lives. 
Since day one, our Software Engineers have helped tackle the complex and interesting challenge of discovering value hidden in the world’s data. We are pushing the technical envelope to solve these problems, and in the process, are helping to redefine how our clients leverage data. As the world of data continues to grow exponentially, the issues they address will only increase in difficulty, scale and excitement. In order to meet these challenges, we’ve built a data collection platform that allows us to ingest terabytes of data per day. Your work will draw on your expertise with pretty much everything driving the modern internet today.
Projects at our level of complexity require you to possess a passion for learning as well as deep understanding across a wide array of technical competencies.  While we face large-scale challenges, we hire only the best to take them on. This enables us to keep your team size small and your individual impact significant.
