Percona provides expert consulting, support, training, and services for MySQL and LAMP stack environments. We are a family-friendly, bootstrapped company that ’s privately owned, with no plans to go public or be acquired. This makes Percona feel very different from many high-tech companies. It means we ’re working hard to succeed, but at the same time, success means we all benefit — not just a few people at the top. We believe in compensating people according to their contribution to the company. We work from home, interacting through Skype, IRC, and email. Once a year we have an all-company meeting, including family members, children and significant others. We frequently get together in small groups at conferences or for business meetings.
At Percona, we focus on our customers° and users° needs. We°re making the world a better place through open-source projects such as XtraDB and Maatkit. We believe that knowledge wants to be free.
