About PopSQL


PopSQL does for SQL editors what Google Docs did for word processors. We make collaboration a breeze.


We’ve seen what easy access and shareability of data does for teams. It leads to better decisions. It reduces unfounded opinions. It fosters cross-team collaboration since all teams can speak the same language.


What we've built so far is just the beginning (think v1 of Slack). Join us and build a great product, a great culture, and a great company.


We're a remote team based across the Americas.
