BI Samurai is a Switzerland-based company that was established in 2016.
Our team of experts is specialized in the implementation of Business Intelligence (BI) solutions. While our main focus is Microsoft Power BI, we also work with other tools and technologies such as Power Apps, Power Automate, Azure, Tableau, and many more.
We have worked on enterprise-wide implementation projects but also supported friendly neighborhood companies with our solutions. Our clients are working in all industries, can be big or small, and are located across the globe. Due to this experience, we can help in any kind of Power BI project.
When the company was founded in 2016 by Pascal Kiefer, it was initially called K Team Solutions Ltd. After running the company for a few years, switching from SAP to Microsoft, it became clear that the huge potential of Power BI can't be met by only one person. So, the team had to grow. This is when BI Samurai was born. To extend the team, K Team Solutions partnered with small companies. This way, more projects could be handled at the same time. After nearly 2 years of running BI Samurai on the side, it became clear that K Team Solutions needs to make room for BI Samurai and in 2022, the company was officially rebranded. While we still work with our partners, our internal team is also growing.
We have a lot of ideas and plans for the future so we are here to stay! BI is our passion and we love what we do.
How BI Samurai Works
Working with BI Samurai is simple and fun. We truly want to help our clients make the best out of their data. We don't create nice-looking slides and tell you what should/could be done, we actually get stuff done!
Due to our experience with many different clients & projects, we know exactly how to approach any kind of project.
After a potential client reaches out to us, we usually kick things off with a friendly "get to know" meeting to have a chat and learn more about the client's needs. In most cases, this meeting already turns into a kick-off and we get to work as soon as possible. Sometimes, the onboarding takes a bit longer due to complex processes on the client's side but either way, we're always happy and ready to get to work.
We actually offer our "Getting to know BI Samurai" meetings for anybody without any sort of obligations. If you want to know more, simply contact BI Samurai.

Where we are
The company is registered in Switzerland and is officially located in Olten, Switzerland. But, we don't have our own office location. Instead, we mostly work from home, from co-working places, or from other places. We've established the work-from-home policy right from the beginning when the company was founded. This means we all have a great home-office infrastructure and are used to working this way.
Of course, if our clients need us at their office, we're more than happy to commute.
We're always on the lookout for talented people that are passionate about BI.
So, if you know Power BI, Tableau, Azure, SQL, Power Apps or simply enjoy working with data, we want to meet you. There are a few simple rules to follow when applying for a job at BI Samurai.
Because we are also developing our own custom visuals, implement Power BI Embedded and Web Apps, we also need more and more programming skills in our team.
Let's have a friendly chat, just contact BI Samurai and we can talk about if you are a good fit.
