About us

The Sensible Code Company was founded in 2010 with a vision of a world where everyone can make full use of data easily.

We’re based in the UK with customers in the US and Europe, in finance, government and media.

We’ve had funding rounds from Enterprise Ventures, Channel 4 and the Knight Foundation. We are pioneers in data journalism, having started out building open data platform ScraperWiki. That is now the core technology behind QuickCode.

We’re passionate about research, working with universities across Europe on natural language processing and transport. Based on customer needs, we developed the algorithm behind PDFTables. We constantly look for and test new products, for example we created a popular Twitter data tool, and made an innovative extensible data hub.

The Sensible Code Company is now focused on growing our main two products, QuickCode and PDFTables, and development of a third project around transport data. We also provide services around those products and related areas, such as machine learning.
