Our story

Ionic was founded in 2012 by developer and designer duo, Max Lynch and Ben Sperry. The company’s first major project was an open source framework that made it possible for web developers to build fast, beautiful mobile apps for any platform, using the web tools and languages that they already know and love.

Since then, the Ionic platform has evolved far beyond where we started. Ionic is now a leader in mobile CI/CD. Ionic Appflow is used by thousands of teams and businesses, helping them automate app delivery so they can ship faster, deliver better mobile experiences for their users, and focus on what matters.

Ionic is also the #1 solution for mobile micro frontends. Ionic Portals is used by large businesses to accelerate their mobile projects by embedding web content inside existing applications, allowing multiple web teams to contribute in parallel with their native counterparts.

Today, Ionic’s enterprise-grade products power mission-critical apps for thousands of companies around the world, from early-stage startups all the way up to major brands like GE, Mastercard, and H&R Block. At the same time, our vibrant open source community now encompasses more than 5 million developers in 200 countries.

Ionic’s Philosophy

Always bet on the web. It has served developers well for the last twenty years, and we think that makes it a pretty great bet for the next twenty.

Empower others

We devote a lot of our time to work, and there’s an important reason for why we all do it. We are in service to others, and our work empowers the people who experience it. We get a kick out of making people happier and more successful.

Less is more

We work smarter, not longer. Our engineering prowess lets us leverage the full power of software in a way other teams cannot. Our software works for us, not the other way around. That is our advantage.

Embrace authenticity

The best companies are built on the foundation of strong, authentic communication. We don’t buy fans, we don’t spam our message. We teach, we share, we listen. We’re an active part of the community.

Build with empathy

We care about the person on the other side of everything we create. We take the time to understand who they are, and how they might see the world. It enables us to make better products that solve real problems.

Team first

Everyone at Ionic plays a uniquely important role; we don’t have room for rockstars. We are a respectful, collaborative, and supportive bunch, and our impact is maximized through trust and composition of work.

Be worldclass

We’re hyper focused on doing better, and being better, at every single thing we do. Heck, we want to be known for it. If we don’t know something, we learn it. If we need help, we ask for it. Our biggest competitor is ourselves.
