About Judo

Judo makes software that helps our customers build better mobile experiences for their users. We empower non-developers and developers alike to more effectively create engaging, native 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 empower teams to build the best mobile products, by revolutionizing the way apps are built.

We got our start working with some of the world’s biggest sports franchises that wanted to solve the challenge of engaging fans in the physical world on mobile devices. Our first product (Rover) is a sports-first mobile engagement platform that helps teams and leagues create brilliant fan experiences, ensuring they get to the right fan at the right time.

Our second product (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. After working with hundreds of developers, designers and product teams over the years, we recognized the need for purpose-built software that makes both designers and developers feel right at home. The Judo product is the culmination of our company’s decade long history in mobile.

Both of our products were born from similar origins and a foundational value proposition - build better apps more effectively. They both empower teams to make their apps more engaging, improve workflow and reduce resource requirements.
