Building custom analytics and machine-learning solutions for your daily operations

We love impact, transparency and simplicity.

Throughout our careers, we have helped many companies scale their data-driven organizations, but we could also see limitless companies struggle to create sustainable impact from data. This has several reasons: Inexperience to anticipate potential impactful data science solutions; inability to translate project ideas into requirements; limited access to data experts and overly expensive and frustrating service providers in the market – just to name a few.

With SCALEWORK, we want to offer all companies the chance to realize the power of data, irrespective of their internal level of digitization or analytics capability. We want to make data impact as simple and cost-effective as possible.

Welcome to SCALEWORK.
