About Census 🔁

Census is the first Data Activation platform built on your warehouse. Sync 360° customer data to 150+ business tools today with Reverse ETL. Empower marketing teams to build dynamic audiences with a no-code segment builder.

Census is how data teams at companies like Canva, Figma, Rippling, Carta, and Notion build better business operations.

Backed by a16z and Sequoia, we’re a hybrid team headquartered in San Francisco that loves taking annoying problems most people avoid and building elegant solutions for them. We believe that data should be used for more than just making charts. This is why we invented integrations that work directly from cloud data warehouses.
