We are a team of passionate, creative and focused individuals. 

We all have a different background and a different story of how we got here. The thing that connects us is that we have a passion for analytics. 

Having a broad range in backgrounds allows us to deliver projects from start to end in various domains. It also allows us to use different types of software, programming languages, analytical techniques and data infrastructure. We are firm believers in the "pick the best tool for the job at hand" mantra. 

Want to get to know us? Give us a call, shoot us an e-mail or come by our offices for a cup of coffee!


We all love experimenting and playing around with data science methods and models. This is important, not only to learn the essence of data science but also to stay on top of the state-of-the-art. However, moving from exploration to solution / production is not always easy. 

At dataroots we pride ourselves on our ability to also consistently take this next step and combine this with our experience in making results as easily accessible as possible for the end user.
