I've always believed that Talent is the most important asset to every business. With today's talent pool being more liquid than ever before and data being highly fragmented & siloed, I wanted to build a modern system that created an information advantage, delivering critical business insights from talent insights, that changed the way leaders analyzed markets, hired the best talent and managed risk more effectively.
Mark Jacobson, Founder & CEO
After graduating University of Waterloo I saw the vast majority of my peers, and myself included, move to major US cities. I joined Terrain as our first hire to help reshape how fast growing companies think about hiring outside of the best known metro areas.
Sitan Zhang, Director, Talent & Workforce Analytics
Mark and I founded Terrain when we learned how little data company site selection search processes have about talent pools in different cities. Our backgrounds in Human Capital and data science gave us unique ideas on how to approach this problem.
Riley Kinser, Cofounder & Head of Product
As a former Immunologist, I’ve always been fascinated by how systems work. People are incredibly complex which makes for a very interesting data science problem to work on.
Nathan Berkley, Software Engineer
Growing up in a small town where one large tech company was the primary employer, I was excited to join Terrain’s mission to help companies make data-driven decisions around site selection. These decisions have a massive impact on the community they choose as well as the company itself.
