Hakkoda, a Boulder CO- and Costa Rica-based based cloud data engineering consultancy company, raised $5.6M in funding.
The round was led by Tercera, with participation from several individual investors.
The company intends to use the funds to increase its presence in North America and Costa Rica, to expand its team of data engineers in Latin America, and to build vertical-specific solutions on the Snowflake platform.
Led by Erik Duffield, CEO, Hakkoda provides data engineering consulting solutions and services specializing in Snowflake. The company uses a subscription model that works the way the cloud works — providing on-demand access to data engineers, architects, machine learning and application development experts. Its subscription-based scalable teams model offers customers on-demand access to experts specializing in data migration, architecture, analytics, engineering, machine learning, governance and application development, to be applied in areas where skills are needed.
Hakkoda’s new Snowflake Concierge service offers customers onboarding, governance, enablement and training to get teams to value faster and to drive long-term customer success. Through partnerships with Alation, DataRobot, Fivetran, and Unqork, the company can also allow companies to create no-code enterprise apps that put data to work.
Hakkoda is building its flagship delivery center and customer innovation center in San José, Costa Rica and expects to hire 300 employees for that location. It is partnering with the Costa Rican government and organizations such as Rocket Girls to find, train and inspire the next generation of data talent.
