The company

The Sails Company was founded by the original author and maintainers of the Sails framework. In addition to free and open-source software, The Sails Company offers a full-service web & mobile studio and professional support for the tools we maintain. Our close-knit team consists of experienced engineers and product people who can assist with everything from strategy, to interface design, to architecture and implementation. Specialties include advanced UIs, realtime technologies like WebSockets, and modern enterprise-grade web and mobile applications.

Our philosophy

We aim to improve the day to day experience of server-side development, and make it more accessible to people of all experience levels and backgrounds. Above all, we strive to help developers build their apps more efficiently, and with less risk. But we’re also committed to providing high-quality tools, services, and educational resources that make server-side development more transparent— so that someday, anyone who can understand basic backend concepts can build an app.

What we do

The Sails Company is the primary sponsor of the Sails framework and related open-source projects, such as Waterline, Skipper, and the Node Machine specification. We develop frameworks and tools that empower JavaScript developers to reach new levels of productivity, and we provide professional services and support to make the process of Node.js development dramatically faster and easier for organizations.
