We’re proud to see Qbox.io’s own Ben Hundley named to the NWA Business Journal’s Fast 15, which recognizes the state’s leading lights under the age of 30. His impact has been immeasurable. We — meaning the team that started StackSearch — started out as an e-commerce product search. After bringing him on in early 2013, Ben’s contribution helped us to pivot to hosted Elasticsearch, and it is his creation. The rest of us just sell it and support it.

We’re proud to see Qbox.io’s own Ben Hundley named to the NWA Business Journal’s Fast 15, which recognizes the state’s leading lights under the age of 30. His impact has been immeasurable. We — meaning the team that started StackSearch — started out as an e-commerce product search. After bringing him on in early 2013, Ben’s contribution helped us to pivot to hosted Elasticsearch, and it is his creation. The rest of us just sell it and support it.

Today, hundreds of companies have entrusted their own production apps to Ben’s creation. Our customers tell us that one of the most unexpected benefits is that Ben himself staffs the support queue. The Qbox service rapidly eclipsed our efforts at ecommerce product search, so much so that we changed our name.

Congrats, Ben.
