The PDF Pro Story

How a side project became one of the world's leading PDF editors.

The idea

PDF Pro was founded by Sophie Knowles, a female software developer from London. While working as a full-time employee in a tech company, Sophie noticed there wasn’t a central place to perform PDF tasks; not a single decent online PDF editor existed. That’s when the "lightbulb" moment hit: there was a serious gap in the market for a great PDF SaaS application. PDF Pro was developed to help professionals, creatives, and teachers and students get their PDF work done online, for free. Offering 22 free tools, PDF Pro makes it easy to edit text, merge PDF files, convert PDF to Word and more.

Starting up

As a software developer, Sophie decided to build the web application herself, but couldn’t afford to quit her day job. Spending every evening and weekend developing the website, Sophie built a competitive product from the ground up. With little experience in marketing and SEO, growing traffic to the site proved difficult. Like many startups, she nearly threw in the towel. After implementing a solid strategy (and exercising a lot of patience), PDF Pro was recognized as a quality PDF editor and site traffic and loyalty grew.

A popular PDF tool for businesses

The demand for a quality PDF editor grew so rapidly that Sophie was able to quit her 9-5 to work full-time on PDF Pro, as well as bring on additional team members. Today, PDF Pro serves hundreds of thousands of users and subscribers each month. Our tools are particularly popular with small and medium-sized businesses who have day-to-day PDF editing needs. We continue to add new features and hope PDF Pro helps you improve your productivity and work quality.
