Our Origin

Enthought was founded in 2001 when CEO Eric Jones was doing postdoctoral research in electrical engineering at Duke University using the Python scientific software stack. He recognized its potential to solve tough science problems and remove drudgery from the work of technical people. Eric began developing it and networking to enlist like minded experts to join him.

Our Journey

To accelerate the application of Python, in 2002 Eric initiated the first SciPy (Scientific Python) conference at CalTech, joined by about 35 like minded scientists. This led Enthought to consulting engagements, training, and almost 20 years later, a toolkit of specialized software and infrastructure technology to collaborate with clients to transform their business. And SciPy? Now an annual event of over 800 in Austin.

Our Future

We see unlimited potential for business impact through advanced scientific computing techniques and the innovative workflows they enable, created by a new generation of digital scientists. This is true digital transformation; a process of facilitating and accelerating the journey of an organization as it increases its digital maturity, through its data and infrastructure, digital tools, expert skills, with committed management.

Where We Started

Enthought began in 2001 with the idea that there was an opportunity for science and engineering to significantly move forward if scripting and the powerful tools emerging in the computer science world were coupled with the strong algorithms and applications that are used in simulation, modeling, and automation. 

In this video CEO Eric Jones discusses the idea that got Enthought started, and how the many problems seen in industry today, in fact have similarities that enable building tools that cross industries, and allow a common way of framing and tackling problems.

Who We Are

We are scientists and engineers passionate about solving problems and removing drudgery from our clients’ through advanced computing techniques and innovative workflows. We are fluent in the language of science with 90% of our team hold advanced degrees, and 65% hold PhDs. A number of Enthought scientists have made major contributions to scientific computing.

What We Do

We collaborate with clients to define opportunities, develop scientific software, craft enabling infrastructure, and train their experts in apprenticeship style programs to develop new techniques and workflows, fundamentally changing how clients work. We have transformed the processes of laboratories to deliver orders of magnitude performance improvements.

How we deliver

We help our clients see, then realize the possibilities for order of magnitude improvements through modeling, automation and simulation. Foundational to this is increasing the digital maturity of the organization, through data and infrastructure, digital tools, expert skills, and management engagement.
