Maximizing the value of data by enabling teams with real-time access

Our Story

Meroxa was founded in early 2020 by DeVaris Brown and Ali Hamidi with the belief that the future of data engineering lies in better, more efficient, and accessible tooling for companies of all sizes and all levels of data engineering expertise.

We know what needs to happen to get there.


Our Founders

  • DeVaris Brown

    DeVaris Brown,CEO & Co-Founder

    DeVaris is the CEO and co-founder of Meroxa, a VC backed company enabling teams of any size and level of expertise to build real time data pipelines in minutes not months. Prior to founding Meroxa, DeVaris was a product leader at Twitter, Heroku, VSCO, and Zendesk. When he’s not sitting in front of a computer, you can find DeVaris behind a camera capturing moments in time, at the stove whipping up the finest delicacies, or behind a set of turntables, moving a sea of people through music.

  • Ali Hamidi

    Ali Hamidi,CTO & Co-Founder

    Ali is the CTO and co-founder of Meroxa. Prior to starting Meroxa, Ali was the Lead Engineer on the Heroku Data Team at Salesforce where he worked on the core control plane that managed millions of databases for tens of thousands of customers globally. When he’s not hacking away at code or gaming with his sons, Ali is likely to be mountain biking on local trails or at the bike park, racing downhill.
