Born in Geneva. Reaching to Europe and Africa.
We are Astrafy
Astrafy started in 2022 in Geneva between ex-colleagues (and now great friends) that shared extensive passions and expertise in data technologies. Our common vision was to create a data consulting company, one that builds data solutions for all different kinds of businesses to bring their data to the next level.
We were also driven by founding a consulting company that differs from the mainstream consulting companies. We wanted a consulting firm with a startup mind, and above all, no politics.
With the growth of modern data stack, the lack of dedicated consulting companies in that niche sector and our expertise on the topic, we saw it as the perfect opportunity to start our own company.
We were also confronted during our past projects to the difficulties for companies to select the right tools to tackle data engineering topics. Overwhelmed by hundreds of solutions that all state they can do it all, it becomes complicated to pinpoint what technologies are the right ones for your use cases. With our experience and knowledge of the market we have decided to focus our stack on a few top-notch technologies that are emerging as the market leaders for the years to come. Our expertise in those technologies enables us to carry out incredible gains for companies that swift from an old stack to a modern stack. For the ones already on a modern stack, our expertise help attaining those last miles to gain an outstanding competitive advantage.
Our desire with Astrafy is to create a new type of consulting company, one that encompasses open-source by design (see our company handbook that is fully public) and that is deeply centered on the well being of our employees.
Looking ahead, we are committed to remain on the lookout for the next innovative and exciting technologies that will revolutionize the data world. The world is changing at a fast pace and, as a modern consulting company, our strength lies in evolving at the same pace.
As far as our markets are concerned, we have roots in Europe where we have grown and spent a big part of our lives. We are also attached to Africa where a lot of us have relatives living. We are also convinced that Africa has a huge potential in the coming years in terms of data projects. Fast internet through optical fibers permits many companies to leverage the cloud and it is only a matter of years before Africa knows the same cloud heat that has spread over developed countries.
Last but not least, we want to integrate education within our service offering via a dedicated coding bootcamp. This will allow dozens of motivated candidates to jump-start their career in a sector in shortage of talents.
If our journey sounds exciting to you, do not hesitate to get in touch. We would love to talk to you.
