What is Appian? It’s a low-code application platform that lets business people build powerful enterprise web and mobile apps with flexible, visual models instead of clunky custom code.
Appian’s vision is to unite people, process, and data in a seamless platform for low-code automation across the enterprise. Unfortunately, businesses today are hamstrung by their data being spread across their enterprise. The Modern Records Tribe at Appian is striving to make data faster to query, easier to leverage in applications, and a joy for users to consume. We're looking for passionate people who want to create powerful, data-driven features that will allow enterprises to quickly bring together data and build new business applications in order to transform their business.
