DAKAI

Clients Across Industries

Since we started Dakai, our team has worked with companies doing business on every continent. We have delivered key applications for startups with seed funding as well as established enterprises.

Working with market leaders is something each member of our team has experience with, which makes us a dependable asset for our partners.

Starting recently, one of the more interesting challenges of big companies is fueling growth by modernizing infrastructure. Despite often unprecedented potential gains, this can be an extremely risky step which causes many companies to step back. Dakai is well prepared to guide the managers of these companies by providing valuable insight, education, and strategy to the table. Our cumulative experience in the industry lets us bring more value to the table for each new team we work with.

Spotify

Without a doubt, one of the collaborations we're most proud of is developing a management system for Spotify from scratch. The tool lets creatives leverage technology to manage all the company's original content.
Over the course of several years, the old system not only became more and more fragile, it limited the daily workflow of hundreds of employees. It became apparent that the team has outgrown the toolset as a whole.
Dakai helped create a custom platform that works in symbiosis with the demands of each employee from various functional teams.

Technologies

WHich language?

During the course of developing a software solution a team makes hundreds or thousands of decisions that add up together and form the final product. Picking a language is one of these decisions and at the point of making it there is no right or wrong answer. We try to choose the technology that best fits the project's initial specifications and we don't have favorites. If we had to list these are the technologies we use most often: Javascript (ReactJS, NodeJS, VueJS, AngularJS), React Native, Ruby on Rails, Python (Django, Flask, Keras, Tensorflow, PyTorch), Solidity, Go.

ml & ai

We use Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to identify patterns in our clients' data and provide them with valuable insights. One other use case of Machine Learning is achieving significantly higher customer engagement by providing customized options for the product's various users.
Apart from using ML or AI to grow we can help you reduce costs with these new technologies too. We're offering discounts for non-profits and educational institutes who are ready to switch from legacy scripts to this new type of thinking.

WEB & MOBILE APPLICATIONS

After writing over 30 web and mobile applications and hundreds if we count our engineers' past work we are well equipped to develop the solution you need.
Our preferred technologies for web development are ReactJS, NextJS (for small businesses), NestJS (for enterprise), PostgreSQL.
For mobile we usually recommend going with React Native until the company has grown the technology out. In case native features are required we patch holes with Swift or Objective-C bridges.

BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGIES

Dakai started as a blockchain development agency. By the fall of 2017 we got the chance to work with the largest ICOs ever orchestrated (for example Envion, $100M+ raised). It was the wild west, but as one of the only few trustable blockchain companies developing payment solutions and smart contracts for startups we found a niche that helped us grow.
Our preferred technologies are Hyperledger Fabric (private), Corda R3 (private), Solidity, C-Lightning, Python (for data mining, operations).

ARCHITECTURE & SCALING

In many cases planning for the future with a combination of technology and business separates the right decisions from the wrong. We learn as much from our clients as they learn from us. We are trying to identify key issues at every point of growth and tackle them ahead of time whenever we partner with a small startup.
At the other end of the spectrum we have companies with a set of technologies, a monolithic application and a team trying to patch holes quicker than competitors. In the momentum of crushing growth having someone work on the future of the company can prevent lots of headache. We can optimize anything from database structures to devops practices.

automation

Cost of manual labor is increasing rapidly across the world. Corporations of all sizes and shapes define new workflows to reduce headcount.
In the past we've helped Silicon Valley startups in preparing for the challenge of keeping small, but accomplishing great things.
We use Python scripts for smaller things a startup might need and after having deep insight into the daily work the different departments within a large corporation do we might recommend to create special web-based tools to swap out hundreds of excel sheets, build management system tailored to the company and other simple systems solving complex issues.

Technologies

  • Which Language?

    Over the course of developing a software solution, a team needs to make thousands of decisions that will shape what the product becomes. The choice of language is one of the most important of those. We believe technology to be a means to an end, not an end in itself, which is why we are language agnostic and why we focus on the applicability to solve a given problem versus what's fleetingly trending. Some of the technologies we often use are TypeScript, React/React Native, Node, Vue as well as Ruby on Rails, Python, AWS, Google Cloud, Tensorflow, Keras, Solidity, Go and leading our more recent experimentations, Elixir.

  • ML & AI

    We use Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to identify patterns in our clients' data and provide valuable insights. Another use case of Machine Learning is boosting customer engagement by dynamically segmenting user groups and creating personalized experiences. Apart from using them to fuel growth, we can also help reduce costs with these new technologies. We're offering discounts for non-profits and educational institutes who are ready to take the leap into this new way of thinking.

  • Web & Mobile Apps

    Having built 30+ web/mobile apps for a variety of high-growth teams, we know what it takes to create the most value with each developer hour. We value stability eliminating technical debt before building additional features. Everyone is a polyglot and we support working on both ends of the stack.
    Our preferred technologies on the web are React, Next.js, Nest.js and Redux. For mobile we often recommend going with React Native until the company has outgrown the technology in which cases we switch to hybrid Swift apps.

  • Blockchain Technologies

    Dakai started as a blockchain development agency. By the fall of 2017 we got the chance to work with the world's largest ICOs (for example Envion, $100M+ raised). It was the wild west, but as one of the only few trustable blockchain companies developing payment solutions and smart contracts, we found a niche that helped us grow. Our preferred technologies are Hyperledger Fabric (private), Corda R3 (private), Solidity, C-Lightning and Python.

  • Architecture & Scaling

    In many cases, planning for the future with a hybrid technology- and business thinking separates the right decisions from the wrong ones. We learn as much from our clients as they learn from us. We are trying to identify key issues at every growth phase and tackle them ahead of time whenever we partner with a small startup.
    At the other end of the spectrum, we have companies with a fixed set of technologies, a monolithic application and a team trying to patch holes quicker than competitors. In the momentum of crushing growth, having someone work on the future of the company can prevent lots of headache. We can optimize anything from database structures to fragile processes.

  • Automation

    Cost of manual labor is increasing rapidly across a variety of regions. Corporations of all sizes and shapes define new workflows to streamline operations. In the past, we've helped Silicon Valley startups prepare for the challenge of continuing growth beyond product-market fit while staying small. We use Python for smaller routine problems startups often face and having deep insight into the daily work of different departments in enterprises, we might recommend creating web-based tools to swap out hundreds of excel sheets, build management systems tailored to the company or removing human interaction from a process altogether.

About

We are a team of developers, designers and businessmen who see the world differently. Dakai started as a blockchain consultancy working for some of the largest ICOs. After the cryptocurrency crash we pivoted to software development and consulting for tech firms. Eventually, we found our niche in leveraging technology to optimize and scale businesses.

Our processes evolve toward the goal of creating abundant value with the minimum viable technical involvement. We hold ourselves to first-principles thinking in everything we do and take pride in the successes of the teams we’ve worked with.
