Careers at AppGyver

We're creating the tools that will be used to build the next 10 million apps.

There's an App Revolution Coming

The enterprise mobility revolution is changing the way work is done in very tangible ways. In the coming years, there will be a demand for millions of purpose-built apps for businesses around the world. Coding these apps from scratch will be too resource intensive, and at the same time, the established Rapid Mobile App Development platforms have multiple weaknesses: performance issues, limited extendibility, vendor lock-ins – and plain bad design.

With AppGyver, you will get to work on transforming the way apps are developed. Our platform combines a fast and powerful visual tool with a full Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service offering, allowing developers to get 90% of their business-critical apps done in hours.

This will let developers savor the last 10%: the fun part, the unique features in the app. There are code extension points on all levels, allowing devs to focus their finest engineering craftsmanship on where it matters. The end result is apps that are fun to develop and a delight to use; apps that produce tangible business results, fast.
