  • Many companies shoot off into the sky like a firework, exploding impressively and garnering applause. But then they quickly fizzle out, blending into the night sky leaving only smoke as a reminder that they once were great. Rather than seeking pomp and circumstance, JotForm has flown under the radar. What started as a flicker has slowly burned brighter and brighter each day since 2006.

    When I first applied to work at JotForm, I didn’t know what it was, let alone know how easy it was to use. Once I started the interview process, I figured it was time to browse the site and see what the fuss was about. I always thought that even the most basic form requires development expertise. This ranges from creating a form using HTML fields, developing fallback code for older browsers, to testing the form on a variety of desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.

  • Getting people to work together can be hard. JotForm not only succeeds at this, but excels. We do so with people in two main offices, and exotic locations around the world. Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Turkey, the Netherlands, and Montenegro are all places JotForm has been built and maintained. How does this happen?

  • How about stable, consistent, and successful?


    JotForm started quietly enough. In 2005 I was working as a developer for a media company in New York when I realized how impossible it was for non-technically skilled people to create their own online forms. Building them the old fashioned way required technical expertise and loads of time. So I decided to fix that with the world's first WYSIWYG form builder.


    In a 2011 Entrepreneur article about tips on being a successful bootstrapped company, they said, “it may seem counterintuitive, but slow, steady growth is preferable to fast, explosive growth.” And that’s just what JotForm did. We grew slow, methodically, and steadily in those early years. It took from 2006 to 2013 to get our first one million users. Our second million? Well, that came a little faster.

  • If you thought Fridays were the day to kick up your feet and hang out by the water cooler, JotForm might not be your kind of place.


    That’s because Fridays at JotForm are Demo Days, where our developers gather ‘round to talk about what they’ve worked on over the past week and/or what they’ve learned. This is a great way for everyone in the office to hear feedback from other team members, and for the whole team to take part in a greater learning experience.
