About our Group:
Our group’s (Designer Simplicity) mission is to simplify the app design and development experience of our Designer tool. Appian Designer is used internally and by our customers to build powerful, user-friendly and enterprise-scale cloud-native and mobile applications. Our mission is to simplify the complex and make it even faster to build and maintain apps.
Our group’s work focuses on three key areas
- We are refreshing the Designer tool experience to better keep developers in the flow as they are developing an app
- We are making it easier to more quickly understand an application's functionality and components so that developers can make updates more rapidly
- We are improving the DevOps capabilities within Designer to empower development teams to build, test, deploy, and monitor applications quickly and confidently
Building an app development experience that satisfies power users as well as beginners is extremely challenging. We need smart, passionate and innovative engineers to help us continue to improve our app development capabilities and ensure they are intuitive, fast and flexible.
We work in a highly-collaborative environment with Product and Design to help make Appian developers more productive and efficient. We don’t just write code, we actively participate in conversations on how best to make the Appian low-code development experience more intuitive.
