A *different* kind of software consulting

Profile Picture

Who are we?

2038 Labs LLC (previously ABALogix LLC) was founded by Youssuf ElKalay in 2018.

Our area of focus lies in software/systems engineering consulting for startups seeking to reduce their burn rate to medium and enterprise sized companies wanting to optimize their balance sheet. Unlike other consulting firms we provide hands on software/systems expertise while directly engaging stakeholders and providing positive business outcomes.
In addition to engineering consulting - 2038 Labs bootstraps and incubates various product lines developed wholly in house.

ServiceNow, VP - Platform Quality Engineering and Performance

Youssuf is a top tier engineer with a wide array of expertise and always ships high quality, performant, and reliable software. He can drop into an existing team and be immediately impactful, take on projects end-to-end solo or as part of a team, collaborate with all aspects of an organization, balance business and technical needs, handle strategic and tactical decisions, and is someone I trust to work directly with customers in delicate situations. He's reliable and someone I seek to work with whenever I can.
