Douwe Maan started programming when he was 9 years old, and grew up with his Dad pushing Linux on him over Windows. He was raised in the Netherlands, outside of Amsterdam. How he recharges outside of technology is traveling to new places. Prior to his current venture, he joined, as employee number 10, for Gitlab. The company is the largest all remote company, which allowed for him to be a digital nomad, which roundabout, led him to meet his wife, get married, and live in Mexico City.
Since 2018, there was a team inside of Gitlab working on a project to bring the same principles and methodologies from software development, into designing and maintaining data architecture. By that time, Douwe was craving the early stage startup feel. Through some changes in Gitlab, he was tasked to lead the team of reviving the project, which eventually led to it becoming its own thing.
