Why Lambert Labs?

Caribou Data came to Lambert Labs because of our experience and expertise in a number of areas: writing robust, production-quality application code in Python; strong knowledge and familiarity with the Python ecosystem; deploying web apps to the cloud; extraction, manipulation, and analysis of data.

Further, as a software development agency taking pride in our work, we ensure clients’ projects are setup and managed using processes enabling scalability in terms of the number of developers working on a project and agility in terms of changing business requirements and industry trends. Notably, we achieve the latter by deploying code iteratively and frequently using automated tools, including continuous integration and continuous integration/deployment (CI/CD).
