Making form development better for everyone

Because we all have more important things to get done.

Basin was founded in October 2017. As early advocates of serverless technology and static site development, we know that hooking up forms can be a bit of a time sink. Nobody likes setting up custom form backends, so we built Basin to fix that problem. We've been growing steadily since launch, and now have thousands of designers, developers, and businesses using our form backend to speed up and improve their form development workflow.

Our philosophy

We’re transparent. We have a public roadmap. We openly discuss feature ideas and future plans with our customers. And we believe in simple and transparent pricing.

We’re human. We give free trials of paid plans upon request. We offer refunds if you accidentally forget to cancel at the beginning of a new billing period. We respect your privacy and care about the security of your data. And we make mistakes, but when we do, we own up to them and do what we can to make amends.

We’re focused on product. We invest our time and energy into product development rather than marketing or sales. We prefer letting our features and overall UX do the selling over hiring a sales team. And when we do work on other things not entirely product related, we hold ourselves to the same standard of quality.

Get working web forms, fast.
