What is Appian? Its a low-code application platform that lets business people build powerful enterprise web & mobile apps with flexible, visual models instead of clunky custom code.

Appians vision is to unite people, process, & data in a seamless platform for low-code automation across the enterprise. Data is a critical part of any application but unfortunately, most businesses are hamstrung by their data being spread across their enterprise. The Appian platform provides app developers with a rich set of capabilities for bringing data together & letting users easily interact with data regardless of where it is stored. 

The goal of the Modern Records Group is to make it easy for developers to quickly build powerful, complex, & performant data-driven applications. We work with the customer's data, whether it be in traditional databases, web services or third party tools like Salesforce. We then layer on top of that our "Appian Data Service" which adds additional features that let the customer easily extend their data, join across sources, handle complex security, & create powerful UIs & reports. 

Building an app development framework that satisfies power users as well as beginners is extremely challenging. We need smart, passionate & innovative engineers to help us continue to improve our data-centric app development capabilities & ensure they are intuitive, fast, & flexible.
