Your in house MLOps team

Based in Manchester, we are an experienced team of engineers and data science specialists, all passionate about the power of open source MLOps. Our clients tell us that we’re knowledgeable, helpful and good to work with. We work hard to earn their trust.

Let's talk

Our Mission

With our team of industry-leading specialists, we conceive and build open-source solutions that break new ground. Armed with our deep understanding of open-source MLOps, and appetite for innovation, we work side-by-side data science teams to help them realise their vision. If a problem seems impossible, we find a way. If the right tool doesn’t exist, we build one. Allowing us to harness and channel the power of AI models and make positive and meaningful change.

The Fuzzy Labs difference

We passionately believe that open source tools are the best way to create MLOps solutions. They give you more flexibility. They’re future proof. They can be tweaked according to your needs. Plus, importantly, you own the solution. You’re not locked into a proprietary product, which may not be able to change and adapt as your needs evolve.

We also know that the tools themselves are only part of the equation. We spend time working closely with our clients, to ensure they fully understand how best to use these tools to move forwards. See us as an extension of your in-house team.

Our industry is littered with proprietary platforms, all claiming to be ‘the best’. Reading about them all is both bewildering and exhausting. But our experience has shown that the fastest, most cost effective and flexible choice for our clients is to develop bespoke MLOps solutions using open source tools.

Curious? Well then, let’s chat.

Doug has depth of engineering knowledge and leadership experience, making the switch early from his degree (Music Tech) to software development, he’s done it all. Literally; all the P’s (Perl, PHP, and Python). He brings his calm demeanour and experience working in large organisations and leading large teams to Fuzzy Labs, making sure that we don’t get carried away. Outside of work, he’s usually herding kids around and tidying up after them, and if he’s got a spare minute, he scratches his ornithological itch.
