About Us

A Short History 

It was a dark and stormy day at the office. The year was 2006, and Aytekin Tank was working as a software consultant in New York City. He kept running into the same pain point at work. Coding online forms was such a time suck! Not only was it time-consuming to build online forms, but it was not the most enthralling of tasks.

Aytekin browsed online, trying to find an easier way to go about the task. He quickly realized that there was no great solution on the market to simplify the process. Web-based form builders were painful to use. You would add a question by going to an "Add Question" page. JotForm introduced the idea of building a web form on a WYSIWYG form editor using JavaScript drag and drop and AJAX. You can read more about how he came up with the first version on this blog post.

JotForm’s userbase was steadily increasing, and spreading the word about the product. Working during the day, and working on JotForm at night became unsustainable as a side project, and Aytekin decided to make the leap to working on JotForm full time. Building out the team slowly and deliberately, Aytekin decided to bootstrap his company. Now headquartered in San Francisco, JotForm has never received any outside funding and has experienced continued growth. We like keeping things independent, creative, and fun. Our team is global: we have another office in Ankara, Turkey. Our 20-strong support team works from various countries around the world. This allows us to deliver 24/7 customer support.

Today, JotForm has over 2 million users from over 177 countries. More than a thousand new users create accounts on JotForm every day. As a globally used tool, we’ve made JotForm available in over a dozen languages. Let’s walk down memory lane and take a look at the first version of JotForm, which was released in 2006:

JotForm 1.0

Here was an early growth chart.

Here at JotForm, our mission is to make it easy for anyone to create online forms. We have a culture of listening to our users, and many new features have been prioritized and built due to user demand. We’re very excited about the future. If you love JotForm, please tell your friends and colleagues about us. Thank you for all of your support along our journey.

    The person who set up our Jot Form is not longer working with us. We want the ability to archive old forms but I am not the owner so I cannot do that. Any suggestions?

  • Jane Nordberg

    I can't seem to login to our account -- we recently upgraded to JotForm Gold. Is there an issue with the upgrade?

    I am trying to renew out subscription. I need an invoice which was sent to HR but it is cut off on the document that I have. I am the card holder so I do not have a log in. My number is 405-419-8215 my e-mail is donna.schweitzer@ohfa.org

  • Katie Fisher

    Question: If I am to use your product, can I track responses? Also, can I track who the respondents are? OR are the respondents anonymous?

    Thanks you for any assistance!

  • Martin Solé

    Easy and useful. We replace paper with jotform.

    Hi, we are going to Silicon Valley for two weeks. Is it possible to have a meeting with you?
    We will like to show you what we do.
    Thank you.

  • SharonSmethurst

    Love stories like this. I'm a little in-love with JotForm at the moment.


    Great work!!

    Aytekin bey: I am impressed with your blog and would like to share it with a friend of mine. However, the friend has done some hurtful things to me recently, and I am not ready to re-initiate contact. If you are willing to do so, I would ask you to contact him directly. I would very much like to help him with his own blog and website, but I have no particular expertise in either area... and I see that you do. Furthermore, I believe you are both from the same city, and might benefit from sharing each other's experiences.
    I would be grateful for a response of any kind - even a simple acknowledgement of this message, with nothing more.
    If you are interested, however, I would be delighted to know this. I think there is good to be done here. Inshallah.

    Is it true that ExxonMobil is using your service?

  • Berik

    Please can you response me..., sure ExxonMobil to use your service?

    It's official?


  • CastingBCMP

    Who is Vanessa Trapero and why is this person showing up as a collaborator when I'm viewing my form? I do not have any collaborators.


    You are not responding to my requests and I will be lodging a complaint with my credit card company. You are unauthorized to charge my card and it is now illegal!

    please respond and refund the payment done wrongly for 1 year subscription instead of one month

  • Melinda Nikolas

    Can you use jotform as a registration tool and have it send a text message to the Registrant if the text message is set up prior. Do we have to already have the data for registration such as name and mobile number to begin with?

    Was talking to someone through the blog at one point and they told me it could and would cost about $1k.... please verify as we have an event coming up in March and really would like to use this technology.

  • deejazz

    Why can't I access my forms?

  • Scott Haydon

    Work for a state agency in U.S. We are looking at how to address 508 accessibility on our forms and publications.
    Are your forms 508 compliant? (https://www.section508.gov/content/learn). We are not a federal agency but the same requirements are slowly coming.

  • Maria Clancy

    Congratulations on your success!!

    Thought you'd like to know there is a small typo on this webpage : https://www.jotform.com/story/

    Perhaps 'loot' should be 'look' in this sentence:
    "Let’s walk down memory lane and take a loot at the first version of JotForm, which was released in 2006:"

    Trust this feedback helps :)

  • Malissa

    I would like to know if your forms will work to take paid membership for an online course site. So only members can access course. Something where login to access after registration, or login as a member to access. Is this possible to set up with jotforms?

  • Somerled

    Well done. I congratulate you. Lovely product.

  • Janet Kinney

    I need someone from your accounting to contact me about charges hitting our bank account.

  • HoopsCRM

  • christinebishop

    So glad I stumbled across JotForms. I will be recommending to as many people as I can. Currently using the Free version but you never know!

  • sumberrizki

    We hope there is live chat to help us solve the problem. I use forum to solve my problem, but it takes a time around 5-7 hours...

  • TCuric

    This form builder is great.

    The user guide articles have proved particularly useful when building forms. One frustration I come across often is trying to find answers/solutions to questions, however all queries I've had I've been able to allocate across your platform and in such an easy to understand manner.

  • Louisaz

    JotForm is simply BRILLIANT! I'm the (unpaid, volunteer) admin for a small group of retired military veterans. JotForm is perfect for what we need. We cannot thank you enough. Keep it simple, elegant, flexible, and fun to use. In other words, don't make significant changes. Make your refinements incrementally -- after much beta testing by users. Thanks!

  • safedentalmorley

    To the Jotform team, you make our work easier. thank you!

  • Amrita

    For the past 3-4 hrs JotForms is down and the embed/ iFrame and popup methods are giving this error: https://form.jotform.me/60912282940454
    Please get this resolved at the earliest as we have many sites using JotForms and the forms are not displaying on the sites, see for example on these pages:

    Inline image 1

    Request you to please let us know what is going on and resolve this at the earliest, Please reply by when this will be resolved??

    Thank you
