About Neon

Neon is building open-source cloud-native PostgreSQL. Our architecture separates storage from compute, allowing for stateless and serverless Postgres. We’re a well-funded startup with deep knowledge of Postgres internals and decades of experience building databases. We are a systems company; we work on low-level code with strict performance and correctness requirements.

Neon was created by a team of Postgres hackers and led by CEO Nikita Shamgunov (co-founder of SingleStore). Neon is built on open-source principles and is focused on giving back to the Postgres and developer communities.

Our Team

  • We are a distributed team of 90 people working from 28 countries (concentrating around North American and European time zones)
  • We are a team built on open-source cultural principles (transparency, contribution, accountability, and proactivity)
  • Team with decades of experience building databases and deep knowledge of Postgres internals. We are deeply technical
  • We have experienced Postgres committers and hackers on the team (check Heikki, Anastasia, Arseny, Matthias profiles)
  • We believe in the efficacy of collaborative open-source
  • We aim for a diversity of thoughts and backgrounds
  • We are keen to be a fast-moving, flat org and avoid hierarchical structures

  • We raised $104 million in funding from Menlo Ventures, GGV, Khosla Ventures, General Catalyst, and Founders Fund.
  • Venture vehicles of Snowflake and Databricks invested in Neon.
