Simperium2010 – 2013
In 2010, our app Simplenote was getting attention for how it synced notes between devices. My friend and I cofounded a company to build a service that makes it easy for other developers to sync data in their own apps. I wrote, open sourced, and maintained the Simperium iOS SDK and some of our developer site.
We joined Y Combinator, raised money from investors, and were acquired by Automattic, makers of WordPress. Simperium now syncs data for millions of users of Simplenote, WordPress.com, and third-party apps.
