Founded circa 2012 in Barcelona, Typeform was founded by two designers: David Okuniev and Robert Muñoz. Their mission? Make online forms a little more human. Today, Typeform works on the future of online forms. Powering your brand’s interactions with beautifully designed, professional-looking online forms that people just love. Create forms, surveys, quizzes (and so much more) to grow your audience, improve just about anything, and validate (or invalidate) your best ideas. 
The most important interaction on the web is the exchange of information between a brand and its audience. And that exchange usually happens through online forms. We believe that even a utility like online forms should be remarkable. Our customers say they get more answers from their audience and even the occasional compliment. Make every interaction count. 
Typeform is a team of over 200 people representing 30 countries. We have offices in Barcelona, Spain and in San Francisco, United States. 

What does the future of conversational data collection look like? How will you power it?  

We need a dedicated Engineering Manager to join our team of 44 different nationalities in Barcelona.  We’re building the next generation of functionality for Typeform while paving the way for external developers to do the same.  We put fun at the heart of everything we do—and set ambitious goals to push things forward. Come help us shape the future of online data collection.
