About Permutive

Founded in 2014, Permutive is the data platform for today’s real-time world. We enable enterprise companies to customize user experience in real-time, on every device across every channel.

Our first application has been within the world of Publishing, where we’ve built the world’s first real-time Data Management Platform with our technology powering some of Europe’s largest publishers like the Independent and Trinity Mirror through to BBC Good Food.

With a small, ambitious team, we’ve been able to achieve incredible things: last year we grew revenue 10x and built a platform which is delivering order of magnitude improvements over our billion dollar competitors.

We raised $10M in January and are backed by some of the best investors and entrepreneurs in the world, including Y Combinator, EQT Ventures and Octopus Investments.
