Kubermatic Turns Five!

April 14, 2021

Time flies….and all of a sudden your baby is five years old!

Looking back on the years since our launch in 2016, we are filled with pride, joy, astonishment, and a bit of nostalgia.

In early 2016, Kubermatic (or Loodse back then) was not much more than two guys with a gut feeling that Kubernetes could potentially be a big thing, as well as the ambition to build a business model around that. After discussing this rather vague idea on several cycling trips, we didn’t hesitate for very long, registered the company, and turned Julian’s living room into our first office.   

What followed thereafter can only be described as a crazy rollercoaster ride that sometimes left us dizzy:

Now, in April 2021, Kubermatic is a 100% open core company with more than 60 team members spread across 14 countries (We’ll add Turkey to that list very soon).

This is clearly reason enough to thank all of those who made this incredible journey possible:

We could not have come so very far without all of you. Just as in 2016 when everything started we are still hungry, full of energy, and keenly committed to contributing our part to the cloud native story. Looking forward to the years to come!
