Our Story

The story of Buildly and how it was founded is actually fairly long, considering how recently we were founded. We have 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 to start building and migrating to the cloud faster than you ever thought possible.

The Team

Jeferson Moura

Chief Technical Officer

Jeferson has many years of experience in the Tech industry, helped and built great systems for various business areas. Passionate about how technology is shaping our world and life his main interest is in the cloud and automation, whatever automation he can do to not repeat processes, coding, etc., he will do. He’s a true team player and what needs to be done, gets done.

Parag Narvekar

Open Source Product Advisor

Parag loves to tell software developers what to do and then complain about the fact that they don’t do it. 8+ years of experience in Engineering and Product Management.

Karrla Sandstrom

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.

Greg Lind

Chief Executive Officer

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.

Interns and Contributors

We also would not be where we were today if it wasn’t for all of our interns and past contributors.
