About Drawboard

Drawboard’s vision is to make the paperless office happen, starting with the architecture, engineering, and construction industries. We’re still in the early days of accelerating the world’s transition from paper to digital and are on the hunt for talented team members to help us achieve our vision.

We exist because we are passionate about creating innovative and easy to use digital markup software to eliminate both physical and digital waste for our users across the globe.

Drawboard’s first PDF markup application (Drawboard PDF) is the #1 productivity app on the Microsoft Store and was preinstalled on Microsoft Surface for two years (millions of devices!). We’re now building out Drawboard’s document design collaboration platform that is already embraced by architecture and engineering teams worldwide - think InVision for architects.
