About BiteStreams

BiteStreams is a small data team based in Amsterdam. Companies come to us because they need a team of data professionals, but do not have those skills or capacity in-house. Our services include data engineering, business intelligence, software development, and data science. We believe that teamwork, personal development, and creativity are the key elements to deliver quality work on all those fronts. This means investing in knowledge, sharing ideas, but also tackling problems with a business-first instead of a tech-first mindset. It is demonstrated as well by practices such as Test-Driven Development (TDD), pair-programming, and challenging the status quo. In the end, we want to help our clients take the next step in their journey.
