Ryan Buick grew up in San Francisco – in the actual city itself. He went to school in Oregon, but quickly back to the area. He is a very proud owner of a COVID dog – IE, he got the dog during COVID – and enjoys biking and just hanging out. He named the dog Jerry, in order to make his Dad and his Grateful Dead loving family laugh.
Prior to their current venture, Ryan and his co-founders were working at Flexport. They were so early on the team, that while having to prove ROI on a roadmap, he had to grow new skills in data analytics just to service his job needs. This got him thinking about other folks, and what sort of tool could support a spreadsheet interface on top of data sources.
