About WebMynd:

WebMynd is a software company based in San Francisco and London.

As an international founding team, we've found work trips away to be hugely productive and fun. We have paying customers and enjoy working on a product with real value that our users recognize. We're a tight-knit team backed by top Silicon Valley investors.

Our framework, called Forge, is like HTML5 without the restrictions: you create a common JavaScript codebase but can access native functionality from it. The end result is that you code your app once and get many native apps across multiple app platforms.

Don't build another social network for pets. Apply to solve tough problems for real customers.
