2020. Fishtown Analytics raises $29.5M for its data engineering platform

Fishtown Analytics, the company behind the dbt open-source data engineering tool, has raised a $29.5 million Series B. The company is building a platform that allows data analysts to more easily create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Its focus is on data modeling, with its dbt tool allowing anybody who knows SQL to build data transformation workflows. Dbt also features support for automatically testing data quality and documenting changes, but maybe most importantly it uses standard software engineering techniques to help engineers collaborate on code and integrate changes continuously.
