Manish Jain

I am the chief decision maker at Dgraph. We’re building a new kind of database called a Graph Database which is going to change the way information is understood and transacted on the internet.

I got thrust into distributed systems right out of college, working on real-time web indexing system at Google. I then led various projects to consolidate and serve knowledge graph right behind web search. You can see the application of this work by googling [tom hanks movies] - the information strip that pops up at the top of your search results is based upon work I did at Google

Prior to Dgraph I had two other startups - and SupportX

Implementing GTD (Getting Things Done) and Zero Waste practices, I’m into efficient and minimalist living. I love cycling, swimming, and ultralight traveling.


Niki's Note: What is most enjoyable about being able to work with Manish - aside from his beautiful technical mind - is his fresh approach to company culture, hiring and operating a startup. Having original thinking in all of those areas usually predicts great success. Take a quick peak at some of their thinking on recruiting here for example  and I'm very excited to see all of your questions!
