Dan has 12+ years of experience developing high performance web applications and back-end systems that power internet companies worldwide. When not coding he can usually be found in the garage taking things apart (and sometimes putting them back together).
Daniel worked as a developer at eBay Sweden/Tradera in the same team as Torkel when he built Grafana. The team used Grafana to speed up the Build, Measure, Learn loop from Lean Startup. Working at Raintank is the logical conclusion of wanting to work with Torkel and Grafana again as well as help democratize metrics. Daniel has two small kids and is looking forward to having hobbies again in the future. Being Irish, Daniel always enjoys a chat (especially with a beer or a coffee).
Former ebay and paypal developer who decided to join a small company working on open source. Always had one foot in operations as well as development.
