One sunny Barcelona morning, two designers sat down to build a beautiful lead gen form for a bathroom company’s showroom.
They ended up reimagining the data collection experience, and realized it was one idea they wouldn’t be flushing down the toilet.
Today, Typeform is a team of over 270 people from more than 30 countries, with offices in Barcelona, Spain and San Francisco, US.
We’re building a world where brands, businesses, and their communities can have more personal relationships with the people who matter most.
To do this, we give people the tools they need to have conversational experiences at scale because meaningful relationships start with conversations.
From online lead forms and engaging quizzes, to face-to-face encounters in the office, help us build more meaningful relationships, one conversation at a time.
