The company’s mission is to make complex systems of software more user-friendly so that people with no prior coding experience can easily build apps and workflow. For this purpose, Airtable creates low-code and no-code software. The low code became more popular in a pandemic when different organizations needed to develop online offerings fast.

Almost every single knowledge worker could be a customer of Airtable in the future,” Howie Liu said.
