Posted on Wednesday, July 19, 2023

Crowdbotics is on a mission to democratize the software development process by providing entrepreneurs, product managers, and technical teams with the tools to build applications with zero to minimal coding. Embedded in our DNA are the following beliefs and values:

  • open systems empower our customers to build future-proof businesses on our platform.
  • open architectures enable customers to leverage the “best-of-breed” technologies for their business and our platform should support and embrace them.
  • machine-generated code is just a means to an end. It needs to coexist with human-written code, and be readable by humans in order to be truly useful.
  • customers stay on our platform because of the openness, flexibility, and value that our platform offers, and not because they are locked into our platform through inaccessible code.
  • talent is global and we will strive to make it accessible to our customers with minimal effort. We are looking for like-minded people who believe in our mission, and share our vision of a world where anyone can build software - at scale.
