At Dopt, we’re on a mission to rid the world of bad self-serve product experiences.
Most onboarding and engagement flows—those crucial moments that help users realize the value of your product—are terrible. The same cookie cutter tooltip tours over and over and over again.
We believe there’s a better way: experiences that fit each product, whatever it might be. Tailored to the needs of each user, whoever they may be. That don’t get in the way, but pave ways to connect users with value.
But we need better tools, tools that are powerful, flexible, and accessible. That bring the whole team together. That solve the hard problems, but still give teams full control to build what works best for their product and their users.
We’re building for builders, the PMs, engineers, and designers that sweat the details. We have one goal: help them create amazing self-serve experiences.
We’re a small, tight-knit group of builders ourselves. We’ve designed and built products across multiple startups and high-growth companies like Dropbox, Amplitude, and Patreon. We care a lot about creating quality software (so much, in fact, that we’ve made it our mission to help others do it too).
We’re backed by investors that believe deeply in our vision: Unusual Ventures, Designer Fund and a group of angels that have built and led companies like Airtable, Segment, Amplitude, Productboard, Postman, and PagerDuty that have set the bar for what great product-led businesses look like.
