Well, Bryntum can. Bryntum is a startup based out of Helsingborg that sells software to some of the worlds biggest companies, namely Apple, Google and Samsung.
The Bryntum client list includes Apple, Google, Disney, United Nations, Samsung and many others. The clients usually have very little in common except a strong need for complex web based scheduling using only HTML5. The company is based in Helsingborg, with one employee in Lund and 3 expert JS developers based in Russia.
Currently the team is working hard on building a new crowd sourced unit test tool with codename Fiesta to be released this summer. They’re also porting the web based components to touch devices, such as iPad and Nexus for easy embedding in a mobile web page or app.
I caught up with Mats for a quick chat to find out more about the Bryntum story.
Hi Mats, tell us about your background?
I studied at LTH in Lund, and then did 7 years as software consultant focused on the web with the Microsoft stack (C#, MS SQL, ASP.NET etc).
You have an impressive client roster, how did you pitch some of the bigger ones?
You are based in Helsingborg, have you been offered or considered moving to say, the Valley?
I do love the Valley and I go there 3-4 weeks every year. After quitting my regular job I actually spent 3 months in San Francisco and wrote most of the first product there. The inspiration you get in that area can’t be compared to anything.
Have you taken any funding?
No, never felt the need. 3 months after starting the company I was able to have an acceptable salary.
