We value crafts and we care what you have built in the past instead of where you have worked and studied. Our team have built products managing one of the world largest database fleets, supporting one of the largest developer organizations.
How we build
"Don't deliver a product, deliver an experience." - Anonymous
Like visiting Disneyland or a local Apple store, we want our product to deliver a pleasant experience. Dealing with database is already a stressful task, we try to make our tool to feel handy and never get in the way of people doing their job.Be pragmatic
"Real artists ship." - Steve Jobs
In order to deliver the ultimate database ops platform, we have to ship relentlessly. That doesn't mean we will cut corners to downgrade the experience, but as a professional tool, we believe experience depends more on usability than esthetic. We will spend more time to improve speed than perfecting the pixel, we will follow conventional patterns instead of inventing our own.Stay curious
"Living things tend to change unrecognizably as they grow. Who would deduce the dragonfly from the larva, the iris from the bud, the lawyer from the infant? Flora or fauna, we are all shapeshifters and magical reinventors. Life is really a plural noun, a caravan of selves." - Diane Ackerman
The database industry is still dominated by the relational model introduced in 1970. On the other hand, the productivity and dev tools landscape is experiencing a paradigm shift, tools are aggressively embracing web-based technology, which unleashes many new possibilties. We are always on the lookout for novel interaction patterns from our productivity and dev tools peers and see if any can be applied to the database tooling.
