Whilst the Mailgun blog shared:
At Pathwire, our mission has always been to solve the hard problems behind communications, and we’ve always strived to offer a reliable path between two connections – a business and its customers.
Eleven years ago, Taylor and Ev founded Mailgun with one simple mission in mind: build email APIs that developers actually want to use. The idea was to make it incredibly straightforward for developers to integrate email capabilities into apps.
A lot has changed at Mailgun since then – we’ve gone from a small and mighty team based in San Francisco working hard to offer the best email experience for developers to a fast-growing, multinational workforce that serves 100,000 paying customers worldwide – but through it all, our mission has always remained the same.
Now, we’re thrilled to announce this next step in our evolution: Pathwire, including Mailgun and its portfolio of brands, has entered an agreement to be acquired by Sinch, a global leader in cloud communications for mobile customer engagement. Together with Sinch, we will be able to help our customers expand their reach and increase engagement with additional communication channels.
