Powering the community-led business revolution
Founded by community experts and developers, crowd.dev was built to help businesses grow sustainably through their community.
Jonathan (Co-Founder, CEO) was responsible for go-to-market at a DevTool company. He was soon frustrated that the work required him to switch between endless platforms and work with incomplete data. During this time, he also realized there were no tools available that had all the integrations and features he needed for the developer space.
Working on a solution that was making his own life more manageable, Jonathan figured out that other companies struggled with the same problems. So he teamed up with Joan (Co-Founder, CTO) and they decided to found crowd.dev. They also started to think about the future and that a critical tool like this, should be open source. This would enable to, over time, form a strong developer community around crowd.dev that could add use-cases to the software.
After releasing the first MVP developer-focused companies found crowd.dev and signed up to the alpha version. At the same time, Jonathan and Joan started to build out the team with the first engineers.
To incorporate all the valuable feedback from early users in our community, it was time to bring in external funding to accelerate the building process. We are super happy that we found investors who believed in our mission to be the go-to-market tool of choice for developer-focused companies. With that, we hired more passionate individuals growing the team to 10 people.
crowd.dev’s data and tool suite will be the backbone of how developer-first companies operate, serving: Marketing & Sales with opportunities, Customer Success with support context, Product with user insights, and Recruiting with talent. Developer-led growth will be the default for software and technology go-to-market.
