Domino Data Lab, a startup offering software that lets data scientists collaboratively build and run models, is announcing today a $10.5 million funding round led by Sequoia Capital.
A couple of years ago, Domino Data Labs emerged as one of a few tools that could help multiple data scientists work together, the way GitHub helps developers work together. Since then, data scientists have remained in vogue. So it seems tools that can help them be more efficient — tools that go beyond open-source software and simple Dropbox file sharing — may have an ongoing role to play.
One of Domino’s competitors, Sense, was recently acquired by Cloudera.
Bloomberg Beta, In-Q-Tel, and Zetta Venture Partners have previously invested in Domino. The company was founded in 2013 and is based in San Francisco. Customers include Instacart, Lumosity, and Mashable. Companies can use Domino as a cloud service or as on-premises software. It supports Julia, Matlab, Python, R, and SAS, among other tools.
