Stripe acquires team behind NoSQL database startup RethinkDB

Stripe has picked up the engineering team behind the NoSQL database startup RethinkDB, ending days of speculation in forums about the company’s future. However, RethinkDB is closing its doors citing difficulty in building a sustainable business. Both its namesake project and also its real-time javascript backend project called Horizon will become open sourced.

Popular among developers, RethinkDB sought to strike a balance between having a simple to use database and a scalable one that stretches across many servers. Cofounder and chief executive Slava Akhmechet once told VentureBeat: “If you can build a product that does that, there’s an order of magnitude technological advancement. If you can easily build applications and scale them out, that’s a massive thing.”

Other open-source NoSQL databases are available in the space, but RethinkDB opted tofocussome of its marketing on differentiating it from well-funded startup MongoDB’s database software.RethinkDB stores data in JSON documents, like MongoDB, but uses the RethinkDB query language (ReQL) that supports joins, among other things.Currently its GitHub project has accumulated more than 15,000 stars.

While RethinkDB wasn’t able to succeed, some on the team were able to land new opportunities, namely Stripe. In a blog post, Akhmechet said those joining the payment processing company will use their expertise to solve new problems while building out infrastructure for developers worldwide.

Based on Akhmechet’s post, it appears that RethinkDB made an effort to help its team transition to other roles, but Stripe only appeared to be interested in the engineers, which makes sense because Stripe is interested in creating tools developers can incorporate into their apps while being really simple to do so.

Started in 2009, RethinkDB participated in the Y Combinator startup program before open-sourcing its database under a GNU license in November 2012.It eventually spawned a commercial cloud company to provide developers with a premium database. The company raised $12.2 million in venture funding from among a bevy of investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Highland Capital Partners , SV Angel, and Webb Investment Network.

For those interested in participating in the process to open source RethinkDB’s products, Akhmechet said you can join the public Slack group and there will be updates posted to the company’s blog and Twitter account.

We’ve reached out to Stripe for comment and will update if we hear back.
