GrapheneDB is a hosted graph database in the cloud. It’s like MongoHQ, but for the graph databases. Graph databases store data in graphs, the most generic of data structures, and are specially well suited for datasets where relationships are relevant. Typical use cases are social networks, recommendations engines, data mining, etc.
Its culture is the peculiarity of this startup: everybody within the team can work from any place in the world, their main office is Hipchat, Google Hangouts, Github, and Gmail. The “secondary” office is in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, a beautiful place in the Canary Islands where they use to reunite sometimes. GrapheneDB provides services worldwide and is very involved with the Neo4j community.

We have an ambitious and very young startup joining us in this first edition of Jóvenes con Futuro Spain. It is Mr Jeff, a startup founded by two 23 and 24 year old entrepreneurs working hard to be market leaders and solve new problems in the society through their app. Users just need to place an order in their phones or mobile devices and Mr Jeff would pick up your clothes and return them clean in 48 hours. As simple as it seems and time-saver, Mr Jeff provides online laundromat services that are the solution to some of your daily problems.
With just a few months of life this startup is already working in Madrid and Valencia with future openings in Seville, Singapur and Mexico DC in 2016, and it is becoming market leader in its sector. Working at a startup like this with clear international expansion plans since the beginning of the foundation, with young and talented professionals and a good startup atmosphere makes it a great opportunity for any developer looking for a job where he can have fun and do what he is passionate about.
