Eric is a software engineer and data operations lead for Factual.

Factual is a platform where anyone can share and mash open, living data on any subject. We provide smart tools to help the community build and maintain a trusted source of structured data. And this data can be used through web apps and APIs to help developers and publishers be more innovative and productive. Factual was founded in 2007 by Gil Elbaz, co-founder of Applied Semantics (AdSense), which was acquired by Google in 2003.

Additional Information

We use PostgreSQL as a materialized view layer in front of our NoSQL-style datastore. We use postgres's plug-in architecture and reliable storage to provide responsive querying into our core datasets.
