Who We Are

Thunkable was founded on a simple mission to enable anyone to build their own awesome apps. We believe that by doing so, we can grow and diversify the community of technology creators who will lead the economy of the future (notes).

We seek and embrace diversity in all of its forms. We strive to do the right thing for our users. We aspire to be open, honest and nice to each other. We try to include everyone (including vegetarians). We aim to be on the cutting edge of the latest technologies so that we can enable our users to be the same.

“Thunkable is a close-knit, diverse set of individuals who are strung together by their commitment to their mission to democratize app development” - James, Thunkable intern

Engineering at Thunkable
Engineering team and processes

We have a number of semi-independent groups working on different aspects of development (e.g. infrastructure) or different product-oriented verticals (e.g. gaming).

We currently have weekly release cycles, but are striving for faster release mechanisms.

Technical Challenges

Our biggest challenge is to remove as much of the friction and complexity of cross-platform mobile app development, testing and deployment as possible for our users. One example of this is building our users' iOS apps for them in the cloud, at scale.

Projects you might work on
  • You would help develop gaming-based functionality into our platform to enable our users to build custom casual gaming apps.

  • You would help improve our ability for us scale our product.

  • You would help to streamline and enhance the ways that our users build their apps' user interfaces.
