Company: Bit Quill Technologies. You likely have never heard of Bit Quill Technologies. That is a good thing. 

BitQuill was started 4.5 years ago by software engineers who previously sold their company. At the time when they sold, they asked what they loved to do and decided to focus only on building critical components for software products companies. They also think giving all engineers an ownership stake is not only economically beneficial but great for building a team culture.
