Apex is a Big Data Engineering consultancy based out of Carmel, IN. We are a team of seasoned engineering professionals with our feet planted firmly on the ground. We start with what we know works and go from there. Don't get us wrong, our heads are in the clouds too, but we don't skip any steps in getting there. We've made the hard trek up the mountain, so you don't have to.
Apex is inspired by the spirit of rock climbers from Royal Robbins to Lynn Hill, to Tommy Caldwell. The best climbers are tenacious and intense yet cool as a cucumber, and have the uncanny ability to read a route and see exactly how it should be climbed before they even touch the wall. Our decades of experience have allowed us to develop those same skills in the data space and we are eager to show you the joy of good data engineering.
