Numerade is a venture-backed, high-growth education technology startup based in Los Angeles. We are singularly focused on creating exceptional video and interactive content experiences for education making the knowledge and skills of world class educators widely accessible and af fordable to student audiences of all backgrounds. Our mission is to close the educational opportunity gap by unlocking and democratizing access to extraordinary educators and the content they have to offer.

Numerade prides itself on delivering seamless solutions to its users. As their user base began to grow, so too did database performance. The Numerade platform could not scale to provide excellent performance to the growing volume of simultaneous users. The Client reached out to DataSleek to optimize their database and come up with a solution to get accurate analytics.

We worked to optimize the Numerade database to improve query performance. We also proposed schema design and architecture best practices and recommended performance and monitoring practices which ultimately supported 1,000 concurrent users while keeping infrastructure cost down.


Data Sleek went above and beyond the initial goal of this project. We were able to optimize queries & reduce speeds to less than 1 second. Numerade now has a scalable architecture that is capable of supporting any number of users on the platform seamlessly and Numerade can easily track and monitor its platform performance and take measures to keep the performance consistent and provide excellent experiences to its users. This move will allow Numerade to confidently grow its user base and maintain its reputation of excellence.

"Data Sleek not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. They were able to implement the proposed solutions, resulting in dramatically decreased load times. Wonderful experience, team was responsive and deeply knowledgeable, would recommend!"
