About Tumult

Tumult is building the next generation of apps for web design. We capture the bleeding edge of web browser technology into tools used by top creative pros. Knowing a great artist can only become great when using the right tool, we value flexibility, precision, and simplicity.

Our initial product, Hype, has been used to produce HTML5-based animations, infographics, ebook educational content, games, personal web pages, and everything in between. Hype has been off to a great start in its first year of life; it has won the Macworld Editor’s Choice award, received multiple features by Apple in the App Store, and received tremendous praise from its users. Our user base is quickly growing, and our users are some of the best on the planet — they’re creative, talented, and passionate about making the best content possible.

Founded by two Apple veterans, Tumult is backed by Y Combinator. Aside from some cushion funding, we’re proud to have bootstrapped a profitable company. Our team is based in San Francisco, working out of a one-of-a-kind office in Hayes Valley. Our office is laid back and comfortable; our team is skilled and driven. We love shipping award winning apps, supporting our users, and discovering the future of the web.
