Our Team

01 Why Fauna?

After building the distributed storage systems that power Twitter, we regrouped to create the database we wished we had.

We care deeply about code quality, scalability, and performance, but even more, we care about helping our customers achieve their goals.

Join us and help change the industry forever.
