GitBook story

At GitBook, we're building a new document standard suited for modern work and collaboration. We're a fully remote and product oriented team. Our ambition is to empower team's intelligence! We want to help teams work more efficiently by creating a single place to leverage their knowledge.

GitBook started as a simple open source tool designed to let developers quickly publish content from a git repo. We've changed a bunch since then, but fundamentally we've stayed true to the vision of empowering software teams to document and distribute their knowledge.

Where we started

The first iteration of GitBook was a bootstrapped, developer-focused product built by co-founders Samy and Aaron, allowing folks to publish documentation (or 'books'!) straight from their git repos.

Where we're at

Now, we are a fully remote team building the future of knowledge management, starting with technical teams. GitBook is now used by over 2M users and thousands of teams such as Adobe, Netflix, Apple, Snyk, and Google and backed by top partners such as P9 Capital, Notion Capital and Fly VC.

Where we're heading

We want GitBook to be a product that continues to power knowledge, and break down silos, across all kinds of great teams. We're pushing ourselves to improve; we treat our company like a product; we take risks together; and fundamentally care about the future of knowledge management.

Well the best way to learn about GitBook is to test our product😉
