Founder story

About 20 years ago, Ben Chestnut and Dan Kurzius started a web design agency called the Rocket Science Group. Their focus was on big, corporate clients, but on the side, they created a delightful email marketing service for small businesses.

Mailchimp was designed as an alternative to the oversized, expensive email software of the early 2000s. It gave small business owners who lacked the high-end tools and resources of their larger competitors access to technology that empowered them and helped them grow.

Culture

Mailchimp strives to create a culture that empowers a humble, creative, and independent workforce. We are passionate about our small business customers and believe that collaboration and creativity are powerful tools to help them make their dreams a reality.

We love how each new hire adds to our culture. And, we’re hiring.

We believe that what makes us different makes us stronger. Building a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization is good for our teams, our customers, and our community. We empower each other to bring unique perspectives and experiences to work, and we continually seek new ways to do so.

Corporate citizenship

We believe that Big Change Starts Small, whether you’re just starting your business or trying to create positive change in your community. We’ve learned that in a world full of big issues, small world changers need a champion. That’s why Mailchimp has invested more than $12 million to help small and medium sized organizations get started and grow.
