Our mission at Durable is to make owning a business easier than having a job.

We envision a world where AI runs your business for you. Anyone with a skill will be able to launch a successful business in minutes. They will be able to focus only on doing their best work, not all the other bullshit that comes with running a business.

AI will be their web designer, their marketing agency, their office admin, and their accountant.

We launched the first AI Website builder (before chatGPT!), and have generated over 5 million sites.

We have a long way to go to accomplish our ambitious vision. We raised a $14m Series A from Spark Capital last year, are generating significant revenue, and are a team of 20.

We're hiring our first Engineering Manager to join us and build a world-class team.
