WE LEVERAGE DATA IN NEW AND EXCITING WAYS TO CREATE SUSTAINED COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE.
From how we engage new customers to how we work every day, Delta Bravo is built on transparency and accountability.
We hire the best people we can find and give them a voice and fun things to work on. Our teams meet regularly to audit progress on customer and company goals, reviewing aspects of the business ranging from product roadmaps to sales pipeline to financial health. We provide full healthcare coverage for our employees- as in our employees don’t pay a penny for healthcare. We’ll never be the biggest company out there, but for our employees and customers, we will be the best.
The Delta Bravo platform is designed to provide maximum speed to deployment with unparalleled security, performance and scalability. Our first success story on the platform was Delta Bravo Database, which uses Artificial Intelligence to help with complex database management. This solution enables a single user to do more with less; proactively improving database performance while reducing security and compliance risks commonly associated with data growth. In the time since, the Delta Bravo platform has enabled enterprises all over the world deploy Machine Learning and AI capabilities in a fraction of the time and cost it would take to do it on their own or through a larger provider.
A recent Harvard Business Review article called described an “AI Quick Win” as a project being completed within 6 to 12 months. Since early 2018, the Delta Bravo AI platform has taken customers like AccuWeather, Toyota, Rolls Royce, Atlas Copco and even the US government from raw data to AI capable in less than a single month. Our “quick win” methodology delivers results in 30-day intervals at rates that are 25-40% below larger providers- without long term commitment or technology “lock-in.”
We are not solely focused on work that “keeps the lights on.”
We encourage creativity and big picture thinking about how AI can benefit the world around us. We initiated programs like the Delta Bravo Safety Net to use AI to save lives and improve public safety. We work with police to minimize fatal traffic accidents and identify patterns used to reduce certain types of crimes. We work with assisted living centers, mining mountains of data to find an anomaly or correlation that can improve quality of life for our elders.
Through creative people, processes and technology that deliver value faster and more cost effectively than our competitors, we will continue to generate greater insight and positive business outcomes for our customers.

Delta Bravo is growing quickly.
We’re always looking for the right kind of people. We hire and award bonus compensation to team members who exemplify the following Core Values.
Shared goals and mutual support lead to greater success than isolated work and individual focus. Through collaboration we multiply our contribution.
The quality of your work is a reflection of who you are. We listen, focus and finish. We say what we do and we do what we say. Trust is built through credibility. We are consistent, honest and operate with integrity, even when it’s the hard thing to do.
Passion is an internal motivator, a following of one’s values, a regard of one’s intrinsic, unique desires. It’s an energy that comes from within – it is not forced on one from the outside. It’s passion that keeps us up late learning the newest technology. Passion that compels us to provide service offerings our clients don’t even know they need yet. It’s passion that holds our standards high and empowers us to energize, engage and inspire others.
There are no single roles in a growth company; all of us wear multiple hats. We face new challenges and unfamiliarity every day but nothing stops us from completing our tasks quickly and at a high level of quality. We don’t complain. We simply get it done.
You can’t build a disruptive product on the back of a legacy one. Whether its new product features, support requests, client or staff conversations – push yourself to be creative and innovative. Think holistically- understand what matters today and tomorrow for our team and our clients.
