Faces behind the API

Contentful was started by Sascha and Paolo out of dissatisfaction with the existing web-focused CMSs. Those didn't fit for the new web – the web of mobile, interactive, multichannel content.

I was working with web content management systems in an agency. In particular, I was making them talk mobile. I was fed up with building custom backends and basically doing the same thing over and over again.

Having fun

We believe it’s essential that everyone enjoys what they’re doing — otherwise why be bothered?
