The best solution for every challenge. We focus on stream data processing - with “Bespoke Data Engineering”.

Data Engineering from bakdata stands for new capabilities, faster actions, and reliable insights. Manageable, holistic and customer-centered.


What we do

Data Streams

All data is a stream. We process your data as it emerges. We create streamlined, highly efficient and perfectly integrated stream data solutions. We build online algorithms that create valuable up-to-date information for you.


Quick for Data Streams

Quick is our stream data application framework which unlocks your data streams for your application. It lets you integrate your algorithms seamlessly and provides them with modern APIs through GraphQL.


Open Source

Our heart beats for coding. As part of the open source community, we benefit from open source projects such as Kafka or Kubernetes and develop our own open source projects.



We appreciate the community and we share. We frequently report on ongoing projects and missions accomplished. As a team and together with you, we gave several talks:

bakdata stands for open, individual data solutions and holistic data concepts. Although we see ourselves as an IT service provider, we do not work for, but together with our customers.

With the need to further develop the concept of data management, the computer scientists Alexander Albrecht and Christoph Böhm combined their practical and scientific experience in administration, integration and analysis of large, complex volumes of data. With that, they laid the foundations for bakdata.

Since 2013, we have been working in our Berlin office to counteract non-coordinated and cost-intensive systems. Therefore, we consider classic technologies as well as the latest technology trends or open-source software. For us, “Bespoke Data Engineering” means using clever strategies to expose the added value in your data.



Our services center around stream data processing and cover connected data systems from traditional commercial database systems of established providers to state-of-the-art open source software and in-house developments. We bundle highly-demanded expert knowledge with our core competence in the field of Data Engineering. We draw on many years of experience as well as on current standards from research, science and technology.

Using approaches from the fields of statistics, machine learning and knowledge management, we enable scalable solutions. For more efficiency and lower risks.

Join our team

People with ideas. Creative minds passionately pursuing their goals. Innovators who significantly shape the future of data stream processing. Be a part of it.

You will work in an independent team and develop software for data streams based on, e.g., Apa­che Kafka, Kuber­ne­tes and cloud tech­no­lo­gies such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Micro­soft Azure.

We want you to enjoy building high-quality software in Java or Python. We expect you to be familiar with Test Dri­ven Deve­lop­ment, Code Reviews, Con­ti­nuous Inte­gra­tion & Deli­very, etc. It is a plus (not a must) if you can show-off hands-on experience with Apache Kafka or cloud technologies.

We are a small but strong and motivated team where decisions are taken directly. We work in a friendly atmosphere with a wide range of opportunities. We offer team events and continuous education. We give talks and attend international conferences. We have modern offices in Berlin Charlottenburg but enable team mates to work flexibly from home or remote.

If you are interested in working with us, then we look forward to meeting you.
