The company

HiGeorge is an AI-powered data-as-a-service platform. We help companies, no matter how big or small, better leverage the world’s data to create business value.

Today, HiGeorge enables media companies to easily create compelling visualizations that are on par with the NYTimes. We do this by cleaning and aggregating datasets so that anyone can embed data visualizations into their website with a simple copy/paste, no-code required. Think Tableau with all the necessary data attached.

HiGeorge’s subscription SaaS product launched 9 months ago has grown 4x since December. Customers include large media companies such as Tribune and Scripps. The two co-founders met 20 years ago in the dorms at UC Berkeley, and have 15+ years scaling tech and enterprise sales teams.

Investors include Y Combinator, Bertelsmann Digital Media Investments (BDMI), Garage Technology Ventures, Amino Capital, MathCapital and the first Airbnb employee.

The advisory board is from The New York Times, The Guardian, and Wired. Check out examples of customers using HiGeorge at NYDailyNews and Mission Local.


As our first marketing hire you will lead our public launch and help build a marketing function from scratch. Initially you will help with testimonials, content marketing, community/events, expanding partnerships, etc.

We are seeking an experienced, talented Growth and Marketing “athlete” to join HiGeorge in Los Angeles or remotely anywhere around the world. You’ll be bringing your skills and expertise to design, build and scale our highly available and distributed SaaS platform and its numerous applications that make our business possible and essential to many.

Our interview process

  • We'll have a short intro chat with you (~30 min)
  • We’ll ask you to work on a small exercise that corresponds to the role (~60-90 min)
  • After reviewing your work, we'll ask you to talk about it over a conversation with a founder (~30 min)
  • We’ll have you meet with team leads and/or other execs

Why you should join Dataherald

Dataherald allows you to easily create compelling visualizations from public data. Think Tableau but with all the necessary data attached. Most writers don't have the staff/resources to create great visualizations like the New York Times but HiGeorge gives them that power.
