The Story Behind Hygraph

Being developers, it was easy to understand that traditional content management systems could not keep up with the requirements of modern, multichannel app development.

The Need for Better Content Management

The mobile and IoT revolution is forcing CMS vendors to rethink their product strategies, as content now lives on multiple platforms. REST based, API-first CMS entered the landscape as a logical consequence. And while REST is basically doing the trick, it has several limitations that make developing sites and applications a pain. Building a GraphQL native CMS remedies these problems.

Made In Germany

Michael and Daniel met in 2015, while working for a DAM company. They quickly realized that they share the same mindset on software development, keeping a close eye on the disruptive JavaScript technologies that came to life. A couple of weeks later, the idea of a GraphQL CMS came to their minds, so they built it.

Today, most of Hygraph's team operate remotely from different parts of the world, while around 30% works out of the Berlin HQ.
