About Us - Tech agnostics
Our story

Our Story is a data science boutique, founded to help companies innovate with their data. Simply.


The name "" is a shortened version of "gradient," which is based on the widely known (in the ML community) "stochastic gradient descent" optimization. It reflects our obsessive drive to tackle business problems with deep technical expertise. (Our company's name was originally "Optimal Gradient," but we also optimized that!) 

There are multiple algorithms, solutions, open source frameworks and other tools which have made data science and data engineering accessible to the majority of companies. It is also easy to get lost in such a dynamic world.

We met with numerous companies to discuss with business owners their needs regarding data, and we realized that one has to have a comprehensive approach to every data project.

So here we are, implementing state-of-the-art data science and data engineering frameworks, reducing risk, time and costs.

We also develop our own "frameworks," which are basically knowledge of our employees and external contractors. Speaking of contractors, we have a wide network of bright engineers and we never hesitate to avail ourselves of them! 

We are tech agnostic, because we build solutions based on our partners' needs, not based on the most convenient framework for our team.

It is clear that we have internal knowledge and insights into what is efficient and what type of technology most often works, but we approach every project individually. This means taking into consideration technological debt, openness to change or cost of change management.

We also know our specialties and current resources, so if there are specific tasks which require employees who are not currently available, we openly talk about the issue and source contractors from our network or find creative, professional solutions.

Being tech agnostic also means that we try to stay up-to-date with production-ready open source solutions and external providers (e.g., cloud providers) so that we can execute projects with the current best practices.
