We Saw a Problem
The way work gets done is dumb... but it's not your fault.
Where's that file? What did we decide? Why did that project stall?
Billions of dollars are spent on productivity, collaboration, and communication tools for teams each year. Yet all you do is manage your inbox and go to meetings.
Why? Because the old tools were built on an old paradigm, with old technology, in a non-mobile era. It's a chronic and frustrating problem. Our software is letting us down.
We've obsessed day and night about the intersection of communication and content. With Quip's living documents, your content — the words, images, spreadsheets, and data — live right alongside the communication with your team. Clarity prevails, decisions happen faster, and your entire company benefits.
Today, over a million users and thousands of teams have adopted Quip's living documents in place of email, file attachments, and disjointed messaging apps.
Quip was founded by Bret Taylor and Kevin Gibbs — two super nerds who have built and led some of the most innovative and successful products in tech.
Bret was co-creator of Google Maps, CTO of Facebook, and is responsible for the “like” button. Kevin led engineering and product at Google, and brought Google App Engine to market.
