Software is eating the world, and every organization must adapt in order to provide digital services to their end users. Contentful provides cloud-based content infrastructure (through a set of advanced APIs for developers), that helps organizations to manage, integrate and deliver content across any device and service: websites, mobile apps, internal enterprise portals, voice or chat bots, machine learning algorithms, VR, IoT or any other new platform.
Over the last decade, monolithic legacy content management systems have made the move towards marketing and drag-and-drop user interfaces. This transition forces today’s professional developers to take career detours (with long certification times and training requirements) and to inherit the technical debt of systems architected for page-centric websites more than a decade ago.
Contentful has been designed from the ground up to allow modern developers to make their content programmable across every platform through using powerful, developer-friendly content APIs. Developers leverage our product just the same as other modern developer services such as Twilio (IPOed) or Stripe ($9 billion valuation).
Our high-velocity bottom-up sales model allows us to efficiently acquire customers such as Samsung, Spotify, the New York Times, Urban Outfitters and Paypal.
We’re growing at an amazing pace, seen as a leader in this new space by industry analysts such as Forrester and Gartner, and recognized by Forbes as “one of the most innovative new enterprise cloud companies”.
We’re a fun team of more than 350 people from 70 nations, with offices in Berlin and San Francisco. Join us!
