Who we are

Revela Systems Inc. is a data analytics start-up in Victoria, BC, with a core mission of ensuring quality, health, and reliability in high-volume dynamic data streams.  We build tools to detect data problems like gaps, bias, concept drift, and anomalies — statistically identifiable issues that undermine a customer’s analytics results.  Our toolset was designed to improve the reliability of machine-learning insights, but it applies to any analytics system where it’s important to be working with clean, reliable data.

Working Here

We are a small, flexible employer and are part of the Alacrity companies in Victoria BC. 

Our work environment is similar to other companies in the Alacrity Canada portfolio, and we are proud to be a part of Victoria’s supportive and innovative tech scene.  We are currently working remotely, but anticipate moving back into an office space in the coming months.  We have a collaborative approach that involves group brainstorming, independent implementation and open communication.

You’ll enjoy working with us.  We’re small enough to be confident that everyone here is super awesome; we’re enjoying this gig, and it shows.  We’re a new company, so if you’re a creative problem-solver (and we hope you are), your design input will be welcomed and incorporated into the product.  Our compensation package includes competitive pay, health benefits, and home office upgrades.
