About Lukas Fittl
Lukas Fittl’s desire to build took root early in life and remains one of his guiding purposes today. A self-taught engineer and serial entrepreneur, Lukas has frequented the road less traveled — a path that has proven to be wildly successful for him, the developers he’s mentored, and the businesses he’s worked with over the years. As part of the founding team at Product Hunt (acquired by AngelList) and a founding engineer on the Citus Cloud team at Citus Data (acquired by Microsoft), he’s molded business infrastructures that are still in motion today, grown active and engaged communities, and has created popular open-source projects for the Postgres database system, such as activerecord-multi-tenant and pg_query that assist developers and help businesses scale. Now, as founder of pganalyze, he’s continuing to empower developers at companies like Atlassian and DoorDash to do their best work with a powerful product that enables them to deliver consistent Postgres performance and availability through intelligent tuning advisors and continuous database profiling.
