Today’s product is built using proprietary data that no one else has access to. The volume of data received in any given minute is incredibly high - providing interesting infrastructure challenges. This includes hundreds of thousands of emails a day with data that has to be instantly pulled, processed and made accessible to customers within less than a second.
