Our Founder’s Story
Founded by Dominik Angerer and Alexander Feiglstorfer while working at agency, Netural, with a passion to craft, launched Storyblok in 2015 as just a prototype that was ready to grow for businesses to build digital experiences. Founded in Austria, Storyblok was made for the world.
The concept of a headless CMS was born in seperating the template’s logic from its content - creating and adding more features and services as we expanded our customer base. Today, we continously strive to make Storyblok for you, our users.
Our mission is to deliver the best Content Management System that validates and prioritizes content management innovations, enables teams to deliver their content in a fast and reliable way while building the remote company.

Quotes of Storyblok employees
I’m a Storyblok user since 2017 and I’ve joined the company as a developer in 2020 and I couldn’t be happier with my choice. The working environment at Storyblok is genuinely great, which is very important to me as I’m very sensitive to such things. Since everybody is working remotely, there’s a natural understanding of the people’s needs in their daily life. I have a wife and two young kids, and the fact that my family can have my support thanks to the flexibility that I get from Storyblok has a huge impact on the quality of my life. There’s a lot of trust in this relationship. Last but not least: I’m working for a great product, which helps me to stay motivated in my job. I know I’m contributing something which really helps companies and people to achieve their goals. I’m in a really happy place right now!
Christian Zoppi Head of Web, Data and Extensions - Italy
I joined Storyblok in 2021 because it offered a true remote position, showed the salary fork right in the beginning, and for the first 2 months at the job, I was waiting for the honeymoon to be over, for some kind of a catch, or for people to show their true face. But nope, that was the real face: friendly, open, and engaged. Come for the job, stay for the culture and help build the best product on the market.
Elena Granina Partner Success Team Manager - Austria
Storyblok’s working environment helps me to get the best out of myself. The fantastic team inspires and supports me in solving challenges and creating the best possible solution.

Haris Tahic Senior Account Executive - Bosnia and Herzegovina
Every time I joined a new company I always had a little knot in my stomach as, in the past, there were always unpleasant surprises after the first few weeks into the new role. When I joined Storyblok, it was not different, I was again a bit apprehensive not knowing what could be the unexpected surprise…And WOW, really WOW, the surprise at Storyblok was that there were no surprises
Everything that was promised to me was delivered and if there were any unexpected surprises, they were of the good kind. I have been given full trust from the very beginning and independence to do my best job in my own way. I feel empowered that I can give the best of myself and see how my efforts are appreciated and have an impact. If I had to choose another company, I’d choose Storyblok again and again. In terms of work flexibility and freedom, they are the champions. Love hiking up the growth mountain with our fully-remote teams, independently but never alone
