The ChiselStrike Story

As technology evolves, we have a tendency to stack technology upon technology. The complexity keeps growing, and our developer experiences do not get easier. Time-learned lessons show us that the way to make better things can also be through subtraction.

We built ChiselStrike because we wanted development to be easy, to build the ideal development environment we would all want to use.

Our Founding Team

Our team has decades of experience in building low-level core infrastructure like the Linux kernel, distributed NoSQL databases, and search engines.

Glauber started his career working with the Linux Kernel (where he met Pekka).

Through companies like IBM and Red Hat, he worked with Virtualization technology, storage and containers. He then spent almost a decade at ScyllaDB, serving as VP of Field Engineering and designing core features of the database. Right before ChiselStrike, Glauber worked as a Staff Engineer at Datadog, where he authored the Glommio Rust async executor.

Pekka Enberg

Pekka was an early employee at ScyllaDB, a company initially working on an operating system OSv before pivoting to Apache Cassandra compatible distributed database product. Today, Pekka’s interests lie in the intersection of distributed, database, and operating systems. Prior to ScyllaDB, Pekka was a Linux kernel maintainer, contributing to memory management, virtualization, and other areas. Pekka also did back-end development when Java was the primary server-side technology in his past life.
