Hi there! I'm Goatie, the proud mascot of CrateDB.
I'm sure you're curious about how I became the cherished mascot of all CrateDB employees. Well, let me share my story with you...
I remember when I first saw the CrateDB's founders in the mountains of Vorarlberg in Austria. They were having a hackathon with many external developers and were staying at the same mountain hut as me.
As a goat, I was used to seeing hikers come and go, but this group was different. They were full of energy and excitement!
I noticed they often came outside to take breaks from their coding and programming. They would gather around the other goats and me every time. I could tell they really liked us.
I think they saw in us a sense of resiliency and curiosity that they could relate to. Soon enough, we became a symbol of their hackathons! They no longer saw us as just animals, but as part of their community.
They even started wearing t-shirts with my picture on it! Before I knew it, I had become the official mascot of CrateDB. I’m a symbol of their creativity, adventurous spirit and resilient traits. I feel proud to have played a role in their journey.
