Data solutions from the world of tomorrow

Brainflight is a one-man software development consultancy specializing in all things data. 

Wherever you are in your data journey, I can help you. Let's make your data work for you!



Not sure where to start with your data initiatives? I can help you identify good areas for using your data and form a roadmap to take things forward. 

I combine tech skills with a business background, so finding a common language with both business and development comes naturally.


I have experience building data platforms in Azure and AWS, both from ground up and improving existing architecture, in multiple industries with different demands. 

From designing the solution to implementing it with Infrastructure-as-Code, I've got your back.

Data Engineering

Getting data from your source systems to your analysts, data scientists, and end users is my bread and butter. 

I can help you implement scalable solutions, from small PoC's, to large-scale implementations using serverless and parallel processing technologies.

Machine Learning

Where the rubber ultimately hits the road for many data initiatives. 

I can help you test and implement both machine learning solutions and the MLOps platforms required for reaching production grade.

About me

Elias Vakkuri

Software consultant, owner

I design and build data platforms in the cloud. 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 AI for systemic change, e.g. in education, energy, industry.
