Judo is growing quickly, and we're searching for a tech-savvy Product Specialist to help us deliver a world-class customer support and learning experience.

About Judo
Judo makes software that helps our customers build better mobile experiences for their users. We empower non-developers to create fully native, engaging app UI without the traditional resource requirements.

Our name derives from the martial art, a key principle of which is “maximum efficiency with minimal effort”. This concept is captured in our mission to enable product teams to build faster and iterate more frequently.

We have two products in the market. The first (Judo) is a visual build tool for SwiftUI that empowers designers to create full functional UI, and to collaborate with developers on a shared canvas.

Our second product is a sports-first mobile engagement platform that enables teams and leagues to create brilliant fan experiences in their apps and ensure they get to the right fan at the right time.

We’re backed by the same group that funded Shippabo, Airtable, LaunchKit and more (TenOneTen and Freestyle VC), a top U.S. accelerator as well as several prominent angel investors. We’ve built a solid reputation with several major sports franchises as clients, and are now charting new territory as we explore the multitude of other industries who could benefit from incorporating Judo into their native app workflows.
