Convex is streamlining backend development and global state management for web developers. The company's reactive platform enables developers to build sophisticated, highly dynamic serverless applications without complex engineering.
Convex was founded by technologists from Dropbox who have unmatched experience building massive-scale cloud infrastructure. They designed custom global databases with trillions of records and led exabyte-scale storage projects. Now, they've created a fundamentally better platform so developers worldwide can create dynamic apps with ease.
Convex has raised $26 million to date from top investors like Andreessen Horowitz and former CEO of GitHub Nat Friedman. As the company grows from 20 to 60 employees this year, you have the opportunity to transform how the Internet is built. Convex empowers developers to focus on creating amazing user experiences instead of wrestling with databases. If you're passionate about enabling the next generation of the web, Convex presents an exciting opportunity to shape that future.
One risk is developer adoption - convincing developers to move away from traditional databases they are comfortable with. But with the founding team's pedigree and strong early traction with enthusiasts, Convex is positioned to lead this emerging developer tools space.
