Since our inception in February 2021, SubQuery has experienced remarkable growth, expanding our team to over 20 members scattered across diverse locations such as New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, China, and Portugal.
In this article, we delve into the profiles of some key individuals who play pivotal roles in shaping the success and innovation at SubQuery, providing you with an insider's view into the diverse and talented team driving our journey forward.
Before creating SubQuery, Sam served as General Manager at Centrality, overseeing a successful ICO valued at US$100 million in 2017. During this experience, he recognised challenges in decentralised infrastructure management and automated code deployments, inspiring the establishment of SubQuery to tackle these issues.
“Engaging with the project SubQuery resonates deeply with my enthusiasm for cutting-edge technologies in the blockchain space. What excites me the most is the opportunity to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that focuses on empowering developers to extract valuable insights from blockchain data efficiently. As the CEO of SubQuery, my proudest accomplishment lies in steering our vision towards becoming a pioneering force in the blockchain ecosystem. Leading a team of talented individuals, we transformed an ambitious idea into a reality that has significantly contributed to the blockchain development landscape.”
Back when Ian was the Technical Team Lead at Centrality, he cultivated his blockchain passion by spearheading the development of core CENNZnet components. His leadership also secured a 2nd place win in the inaugural Substrate/Polkadot Hackathon in 2019. Before this, Ian gained extensive experience in large-scale infrastructure at Alipay and Yihaodian.com.
“I believe that SubQuery will be the one tool every dApp developer will need and our token will eventually be what every dApp developer wants to hold. And this believe in what SubQuery can be in the future keeps us focused in doing the things we do. No matter how difficult things are today, we will keep doing the right things to grow and we will never give up.”
James, a versatile entrepreneur, excels in product engineering and serves as the face of OnFinality. Beyond tech leadership, he's a serial entrepreneur, guiding multiple tech companies. He’s also an avid traveler and stays active by regularly hiking.
“I really like that SubQuery is leading the way in foundational infrastructure for hundreds of web3 companies. As anyone from a product background knows, it’s the best feeling when you can see and help customers use your products to solve their problems - at SubQuery, we get to experience this every day.”
“I also love that our customers and users do everything and anything in web3, we have teams that build wallets, NFT platforms, DeFi applications, RWA, and more. We get to talk to and work with the most amazing and diverse teams in the world”.
Principal Dev of SDK
Scott, a seasoned blockchain developer, initially self-learned about blockchain before diving into hands-on experience as a senior developer at Sylo. His expertise spans smart contracts, dApps, decentralized technologies, and wallet integration across diverse networks such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tezos, and CENNZnet.
"My journey with SubQuery has been incredible. Building the SDK from scratch has been extremely rewarding, laying the foundation for us to develop advanced features and provide the extensive chain support we offer today. SubQuery is a testament to our commitment to redefining the landscape of blockchain infrastructure development, and we're still building."
Head of Marketing
Brittany is the frontline contact for SubQuery customers, ensuring top-notch onboarding experiences. Her integral role spans community engagement and content marketing, where she's taken the reins to drive excellence in these areas.
“I’m most excited to see SubQuery be the first decentralised network with BOTH decentralised indexers and RPC providers all operating in the one place. This has never been done before and is a step towards a crucial requirement for blockchain technology to be adopted. I’m most proud of seeing and being a part of SubQuery’s expansion to over 125 different networks. We started out very much established in the Polkadot world and while this was a great place to start, we always wanted to push to be the most universal indexer available. We now have the widest network coverage of any indexer on the market.”
Head of Business Development
Marta, a passionate tech advocate and Web3 enthusiast, brings her expertise to SubQuery by aiding customers in project development and scaling. With a diverse background as a former product evangelist, frontend developer, digital marketer, educator, and sales manager, she delivers technical consultancy, developer-oriented content, and education to drive success.
“SubQuery is an amazing project and worth getting involved with if someone believes in true decentralisation and wants to contribute to the wider adoption of blockchain technology. I am extremely happy to be part of such an innovative project and, most importantly, at its most important moment. I'm proud of our efforts to make valuable information and educational content available to developers across all ecosystems and networks supported by SubQuery. We believe that knowledge is the key to success and the BD/DevReal team put a lot of effort into equipping builders with useful information so they could index their data at ease.”
