About
Early Friday

We are specialists in helping companies unleash the power of their data, allowing them to make data-driven decisions that improve business outcomes.

What we believe in

Data is God

But only if you effectively turn data into useful information that results in understanding, knowledge and insights.

Kickass people are even better

People are at the core of everything we do. They are the most important part of our company, and the most important part of all our processes.

You can be professional in a hoodie

We believe in your potential, even when you're wearing a Snoopy sweater. You look great!

We embrace the power of differences

and enjoy every part of the ride.

We get it right and we’re always candid

We solve problems, we don't create them.

We're right next to you every step of the way

And voila; now she’s a wizard. When not throwing together data, she’s throwing together great dishes in the kitchen. Want to make her day? Talk about Brooklyn 99 or give her a karaoke machine.
