The story of Buildly and how it was founded is actually fairly long, considering how recently we were founded. The four founders (Jeferson, Parag, Karrla and Greg) have actually been working on Buildly for over 3 years on various startups, and on projects that most of us have contributed to for over 10 years. We are all passionate open source supporters and life long (professional life anyway, though we think Jeferson may have been working with python scripts in pre-school) software developers and have brought Buildly along from our previous experience as an evolution of our software architecture templates and development environments.
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, and building and migrating to the cloud faster than you ever thought possible.

We are all passionate about open source and cloud native architectures and helping teams build amazing projects better and faster.
Jeferson Moura – CTO
Parag Narvekar – Co-Founder
Parag loves to tell software developers what to do then complain about the fact that they don’t do it. Mostly he doesn’t write his bio when his colleagues ask him to so they are forced to make one up.
Karrla Sandstrom – COO
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. She also doesn’t like to write her own bio when her colleagues ask her to so they are forced to make one up.
Greg Lind – CEO
Greg has been working in software development since 1997 starting at a small web development shop in Portland, Oregon. He has a deep interest in open source software, and improving everything from the speed and craftsmanship of software as well as code quality and documentation, to accessibility and user experience. He doesn’t mind writing his own bio, but then has to deal with the criticism from his colleagues over the content of it and realizes why they refused to write their own.
