Building better digital worlds.

lambdaforge is a consulting company that specializes in information system engineering and digital products.

We design and build scalable, maintainable and reliable systems for data-intensive applications by building on a combination of the best open-source industry standards and our own open-sourced stack.

Our speciality are functional programming paradigms to deliver high-quality products in quick iterations. We can beat the averages by minimizing the complexity of our solutions with Clojure(Script), Idris, Racket, Scala, Python, Julia or JavaScript.

We are not only able to handle large amounts of data in our pipelines, but believe in tight integration with both well established and bleeding-edge data science technologies. To do so we conduct scientific research parallel to our consulting work.

We can work with state-of-the-art machine learning frameworks in Python or R, but through our deep understanding we also tightly integrate the necessary numerical routines directly and can infer business-critical information in realtime.

About us

Given a problem our team of specialists forms a self-managed, focused unit formalizing the product design given the underlying business model to implementing a flexible scalable full-stack system design. We then keep your long-term costs low by running the resulting system smoothly.

Work with us!
