Our Story

The founding of Buildly was based on several startups that most of the original founding team worked on as well as the open source projects we built or contributed to for over the last 10 years. We are all passionate open source supporters and life long software developers and tech enthusiasts and have founded Buildly based our previous experience and as an evolution of our desire to focus on user experience and crafstmanship in every phase of software development.

Not everyone understands what a microservice is, or what Kubernetes means or even how to pronounce it, but our team eats, sleeps and dreams this stuff. We can help you get set up with tools to start building and migrating to the cloud faster than you ever thought possible.

CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

Karrla is the conscience of Buildly and the one who says no to most of our crazy ideas, then makes her own much more sane suggestions that actually work. 20+ years in tech operations. A staunch supporter of the user. Loves collaboration across teams. When not in front of her laptop, you’ll find her near old growth trees with her dog.
