Cloud Functions for Firebase & ​Wuu   

4 devs. 3 months. 15% the cost. Maximum creative freedom  


  Company  Designer  and  entrepreneur  Paul  Budnitz  is  well  known  for  his  iconoclastic  approach  towards 

      WUU    “Cloud Functions for 

redesigning  everyday  objects  and  technologies.  His  companies  include  ​Kidrobot, a retailer of art  toys,  apparel  and  accessories,  and  Ello,  a  network  for  creators​.  For  his  latest  company,  Wuu 

(​​), Budnitz wanted to make a bold, beautiful messaging app that enabled users to instantly  create & share exquisite personal moments that fade in 24 hours or vanish in seconds.   

Firebase made it possible 


for Wuu to build our app 

Having  been offered a large initial funding round from  investors, Budnitz chose instead to accept 

on the fly, three times as 

a  small  investment  from  Founders  Fund  —  just  10%  of  what  he’d  been  offered  elsewhere. 

fast and at 15% the cost 

Consciously  choosing  a  small  investment  allowed Budnitz maximum creative freedom, with zero 

of traditional 

outside  pressure.  Budnitz  then  approached  Mutual  Mobile  about  building  Wuu  in  a  radically 


different and agile manner.  



— Paul Budnitz, CEO                                               



With  the  help  of  Cloud Functions for Firebase, Wuu was “literally developed on the fly.” Functions  now  provides  virtually  all  Wuu’s  core  functions,  and  its  ease  of  implementation,  speed,  and  reliability  allowed  the  small  team  powerful  flexibility  to  create  quickly  at  minimal  cost.  Because  they  did  not  have  to  set  up  or  manage  our own servers, the first working implementation of Wuu  was  finished  in  a week. In contrast, Budnitz’s team of 15 developers spent 18 months developing  Ello,  an  app  with  similar levels of performance as Wuu. Meanwhile, ​Wuu was designed, built, and  released in three months by Budnitz and a flexible 4-person development team​.
