About Us

Nothing makes us happier than helping people to extract new and exciting insights from their data. When our customers discover secrets that unlock new revenue growth, uncover that nefarious threat actor that managed to evade detection systems, or apply new machine learning to detect attempts at social media manipulation -- we get all warm and fuzzy inside.

This is why Gravwell exists. Our founders experienced real-world problems in the analytics space first-hand and after waiting for the right solution to come along, got impatient and started building it themselves. Here we are years later and we still get giddy about data insights.

We're also fighting hard against the exploitative business models that are pervasive in the data analytics industry. You should be able to "listen to your data" without paying by the minute. You should be free to experiment, poke, tweak, prod, and otherwise interrogate your data without worrying about caps or ceilings or pricing -- it is your data after all. We're just here to make your job of data interrogation easier.

Kris Watts

Founder, CTO

Kris Watts is a founder of Gravwell and has spent a decade in the security and analytics, working with massive emulytics platforms, virtual machine monitors, reverse engineering, and exploiting tiny embedded systems. He has a passion for systems and how machines operate from small to large.

Prior to founding Gravwell Kristopher worked for two national labs and contracted for a leading private security services company. Working in the national labs brought opportunities to experience first-hand quantities of data that most people never see. More data means more problems and Kris, like most engineers, couldn't let a problem get the best of him.

Kris holds a M.S. and B.S. from the University of Idaho in Computer Science and Mathematics.
