About Stackery

We Take Serverless Operations Seriously

Stackery was founded in 2016 by Nate Taggart and Chase Douglas. As early adopters of AWS Lambda, Nate and Chase found themselves in need of a software tool that allowed them to work with serverless computing, without spending large amounts of time in setup and configuration. Later that year, Nate and Chase applied and were accepted to the Techstars Seattle startup incubator program.

In the spring of 2017, Stackery opened its first office after closing a round of $1.75 million in funding led by Seattle venture firm Voyager Capital. The team then went on to raise an additional round from a larger group of investors, listed below. Today, Stackery has over a dozen employees and operates out of an office in downtown Portland, Oregon.

We are always looking for new people that are excited about the future of cloud and serverless computing. Visit out careers page to see our open opportunities.
