About me

Crafting technology for a better tomorrow

Headshot of Elias Vakkuri

Elias Vakkuri

Software consultant, owner

I design and build solutions in the intersection of cloud and data. I've been working with digital strategy and solutions since 2014 and implementing data platforms in multiple industries and various public clouds since 2017.

With roots in both strategy consulting and tech, my biggest strength is versatility - I'm comfortable both designing new initiatives with business representatives and implementing them with developers.

I'm most interested in projects with systemic impact, e.g. in education, energy, and healthcare.
