Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Timescale helps developers and businesses manage and analyze big data sets that power large-scale operations. It offers this through TimescaleDB, its own open-source time-series SQL database which, unlike many competitors, is built with PostgreSQL. The product’s broad client applications include finance, logistics, and space.

Timescale landed $110 million in Series C investment in 2022, and became a unicorn at a valuation of over $1 billion. This signifies Timescale’s thriving business on top of the explosive rise of time-series data - the fastest growing database market segment - and promises a strong tailwind for the business.

The company serves over 500 customers and tens of thousands of other organizations use TimescaleDB in the community, including companies like IBM, Microsoft, Pfizer, and Samsung, among others.

Timescale is now focused on further growth by increasing investments in product, engineering, and R&D, and broadening its efforts in serving the Timescale community, customers, and developers. It is also hiring across multiple teams to continue scaling the company.
