Senior Devops Engineer


The core problem, we’re solving with Tiptap

Millions of people around the world are using them right now in their web browsers: Text editors. While the vast majority of users have no idea about the underlying technology, and even most web-savvy people think of a text editor as a simple piece of HTML, most of the content on the web comes through them, and while it always seems like an easy problem to solve for web developers at first, it's extremely difficult and finicky to do well, especially when you need to build more sophisticated editor UIs like Google Docs or Notion do.

That's why we built Tiptap. Transforming this complexity into fun.
