About us

GatsbyJS was born in May 2015 as a simple way to build a website with React. Over the last three years, tens of thousands of developers have used Gatsby to build websites from blogs and portfolio pages to company homepages and e-commerce applications.

In early 2018, GatsbyJS core contributors, including creator & lead maintainer Kyle Mathews, formed Gatsby Inc to help website development teams build CMS-powered websites with modern tooling.

Our core values include transparency (we work in public most of the time); creating a safe, high-trust team; building incredible developer experiences; fostering diverse perspectives; maintaining a healthy working environment; and helping deliver web experiences that feel amazing to use on every device and connection type.
