About MailChimp

More than 6 million people use MailChimp to create, send, and track email newsletters. Whether you're self-employed, you manage projects for clients, or you work for a Fortune 500 company, MailChimp has features and integrations that will suit your email marketing needs.

Create signup forms that match your brand's look and feel, and send your subscribers product updates, event invitations, announcements, or editorial content. Use our reports to improve your campaigns and learn more about your readers. Best of all? MailChimp is free for lists of up to 2,000 subscribers.

Self-funded, self-motivated

MailChimp started as a side project in 2001. The Rocket Science Group had clients who were dissatisfied with the email-marketing landscape, so we made them something satisfying. MailChimp was funded by various web-development jobs, but over time, those jobs got in the way of MailChimp.

By then, we had enough customers to keep it afloat. No second mortgages, no credit card debt, no investors. We love seeing businesses start small, fund themselves with paying projects, and build up a strong API, so that's how we run MailChimp. As a result, we only answer to ourselves and our customers.

Since MailChimp is self-funded, profitable, and quickly growing, we spend our time improving our product and listening to the people who use it. We chart our own course, and relish the freedom to make bold decisions. Sometimes, that means using resources to build something necessary, like Mandrill. Other times, it means devoting time to improving the community around us.

We're growing fast

Our company is made up of 250 introverts, extroverts, right brains, and left brains, all working hard to make products people love to use.

Our in-house support staff sits on the front lines, helping customers solve problems and make the most of their email newsletters. Our marketing and user-experience designers are constantly innovating, collaborating, and fixing things. And behind the scenes, we've got delivery experts and human resources professionals keeping the wheels turning. We hire thoughtfully, because we're building a team to scale with thousands of new customers a day. Want to be a part of it? Apply within.

A learning culture

We host writers, designers, comedians, professional pool players, and other guests for MailChimp's weekly Coffee Hour, so our staff can get inspired by people in different industries.

We encourage our teams to grow in their current roles and dream about what's next. Employees have opportunities to attend events, share their work, and take time off to learn new skills.

We care about Atlanta

We love our hometown and want to make sure creativity is rewarded here, whether it's by helping great ideas come to life or giving nonprofit organizations the tools to succeed. We believe in strengthening arts organizations, like Living Walls, which bring the best street artists from around the world into our neighborhood. We believe in bold, transformational projects like Art on the BeltLine.

We believe in reclaiming city streets for our neighbors, like Atlanta Streets Alive does several times a year. We believe in our partnership with the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, which shows every February that creativity is the best way to inspire cultural empathy. And we believe that investing in education, writing, and mentorship will change our community indelibly, like the KIPP Scribes already have. We also believe in squirrel censuses.

Don't take our word for it

More than 6 million people and companies of all sizes use MailChimp to send about 10 billion emails every month. They love what they do, and we love helping them do it.
