Want to understand how Airtable changes affect your own situation?

We'll help you understand if you need to change anything or upgrade your pricing plan in order to continue using Stacker. We'll even help you migrate to another platform, if it's the right move for you.

We're on a big mission: to change how software is made and to enable a million teams to create the software they need without writing code.

Today, we're excited to announce that we've raised a $20M Series A led by Andreessen Horowitz (with participation from our existing investors: Initialized Capital, Pentech, Pioneer Fund, and Y Combinator) to help us on that mission.

“We’ve been watching the no-code space for a while, and Stacker stands apart from the rest because of its thoughtful product approach, allowing business operators to instantly generate a functional app that perfectly fits existing business processes.

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Stacker on their mission to create the future of software.”

— Jennifer Li, Partner at Andreessen Horowitz

We’ve seen tremendous growth, even through the pandemic. Over the past year, we’ve gained thousands of customers, more than quadrupled our revenue and user base and grown our team. Stacker is trusted by companies such as Samsung, Audible, Adobe and Mozilla to create apps powered by their own data.

“Nearly everyone uses a few common tools for their work -- email, spreadsheets, and instant messaging. In the future, everyone will also have a platform where they create and run the custom software that powers their business.

We're building that platform today.”

— Michael Skelly, CEO and co-founder of Stacker

With Stacker, you can turn a single spreadsheet into a standalone app to give to your colleagues or your customers. This has been revolutionary for thousands of people who've suddenly been able to make custom software to solve problems that they had no way of solving on their own.

A great example is from TED, who use Stacker to create their proprietary software to sort through thousands of applicants for the TED Fellows Program:

“The TED Fellows program recognizes people at work on future-shaping ideas, offering them tools to amplify the power of their vision. Every year, we invite 20 remarkable individuals to join the program, and with thousands of applicants, we spend half the year vetting them. With an intense and always evolving vetting process, we need custom software to review applicants.

Before Stacker, we’d have to go back to our dev team any time there was a small change in our process. Now we’re able to create the software we need ourselves, and since we’re in control, we can instantly make changes.”

— Joseph Dobson, TED

Giving non-developers the ability to create the tools they need has empowered Joseph and thousands like him. And this is just the start of what we need to achieve.

With this backing from a16z and our existing investors, we're able to expand what can be done with Stacker. We will let you create a whole system of connected apps to run every aspect of your business on, powered by all the different data from across your company, and created by the teams who need them.

“Right now, every business is either running on off-the-shelf software that doesn't fit their needs or on custom software that IT made years ago and never updated.

It's 2021: teams need to create their own software.”

– Sam Davyson, CTO and co-founder of Stacker

We'll be investing in our platform, allowing you to unlock all the data from across your organisation, whether it's in spreadsheets, databases or online tools, like Salesforce or Intercom. We'll also be investing in our product to give you new ways to display and interact with that data to allow you to achieve more with Stacker.

With the expansion of our platform and product, we'll be looking for brilliant people who care deeply about our mission to come and help us achieve it. We're now hiring for a huge number of roles across product, engineering, marketing and operations.
