About BuildFire:

BuildFire is changing the game for businesses in how they build, manage, and deploy mobile apps. Mobile apps can play a critical role for businesses everywhere, but they've historically been too expensive for the large majority of the market to afford. BuildFire is changing that equation and democratizing access to mobile apps as a result. Our app development platform currently powers more than 10,000 apps, and that number is growing by leaps and bounds.

Here's just one example of what customer success can look like:

This is your chance to join a tech company that has a great position within a dynamic and growing market. We're currently at that sweet spot in the start-up growth trajectory - large enough to be stable, but lean enough that you can still make a huge difference to the company and your career. If you're a rockstar looking for an exciting and challenging growth opportunity, then BuildFire might be a great fit for you.

What We're Building

BuildFire is a SaaS mobile app development platform that removes the barrier to entry to build a mobile app by providing a platform that scales to allow innovative ideas to become realities.

We’re able to build apps in a fraction of the time and cost, in comparison to hiring a developer to start from scratch.

Our easy-to-use management system enables non-technical people to create simple apps themselves, however, no feature is out of reach for our team of developers to build.

With our community of developers, constantly contributing to our growing marketplace of features. There is no feature too big or too custom that can't be done.

This allows people to focus on what is unique to their app rather than the need to build and maintain everything from scratch, saving people on average $50-250k over the lifetime of that app.
