About Statricks

Statricks is a web platform aimed at helping buyers & sellers of used goods save time while maximizing savings and profits. By statistically analyzing online auctions and classified ad marketplaces, Statricks provides blue book values and profitable price trends for a wide range of used goods. The core of Statricks began as two UC Berkeley undergraduate projects in linear modeling and machine learning, and was developed into a web application after receiving a Series Seed investment.

B.J. is a Berkeley EECS graduate, who joined Statricks to save and revamp its UI after cashing in his chips from the Inv. Banking world.

Igor with ScaleDB

ScaleDB is a company comprised of world class stream data engineers, who also happen to be painfully slow runners. As founders of the Bayfront Running Competition, it is clear that "high speed" only applies to their stream database. While this team is regularly passed by speedwalkers and the elderly (using walkers) on the nearby trails, their smack talking would make you think they were 4-minute milers.

When it comes to their high-velocity data solution, however, they are second to none, boasting 1m inserts/sec to Statricks' database. Teaming with them has allowed Statricks to stick with and continue to push its MySQL-based system despite the size and demand of our dataset surprassing levels which would've otherwise forced us to switch technologies.
