Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, eAlchemy is a small but growing technology consultancy founded by Chris Farkas in 2006. We specialize in business analytics and data management, and thanks in large part to the truly collaborative relationships we forge with our customers, we tripled our revenue in 2012 and see more growth on the horizon. We partner with some of the most well-known companies in the Bay Area and beyond, helping solve the thorniest technical challenges of small businesses and Fortune 500 firms alike. We have experience serving clients in a variety of industries, from recruiting to retail clothing to electronics and more, and deploy our expertise to build technology solutions that support operational excellence and drive business success.
The eAlchemy team boasts a diverse set of skills, both in-house and via an established stable of select contractors from which we complement our service offerings. We pride ourselves on a practical, real-world ability to tackle business problems, and specialize in optimizing workforce efficiency by automating reporting and analysis processes.
