An Insider's view of Liquibase

What's something quirky about your company?

Liquibase has a very Austin feel. We've all heard the saying, "Keep Austin Weird", which basically means Austin is a place that welcomes talented people. Liquibase is definitely keeping it weird, we respect everyone's right to unapologetically be themselves.


Senior Developer Advocate

What projects are you most excited about?

The launch of our newest product, Liquibase Pro, is very exciting. We have millions of fans of our existing opensource technology, so the ability to engage and convert them to Liquibase Pro customers has the entire company jazzed.


Director of Inside Sales

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful members of our Engineering team laugh under pressure. Laughter and fearlessness are essential to survive. The engineers that thrive, though, are those with the confidence to question, the willingness to compromise and the strength to stand fast if that is what is best for end users.


Principal QA Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I try to lead by example and be supportive. When they hit bumps or challenges along the way, I encourage my team to come up with their own solutions and help guide them to the most successful outcome. Ultimately all of my engineers are uber smart and individually resourceful — so I want them to see that AND let their voices be heard.


QA Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I have always felt that the people at Liquibase are friendly and easy-going. However, never underestimate our mentality of “get it done and do it right.” We encourage transparency, compassion and bright ideas in a fast-paced, yet warm environment. We aren’t the types to simply lounge on bean bag chairs and drink cold brew all day.


Community and Culture Manager
