Meet MailChimp – a bootstrapper’s Cinderella story. On September 1st, 2009 the Atlanta-based email marketing company announced that they were adopting the freemium model. A year later they had grown their user base five times over (85,000 to 450,000+ users). These bunch of monkeys have been multiplying ever since (and no rich Prince Charming was needed – they are still completely privately owned). Now over 9 million people use MailChimp to design and send 600 million emails every day and Hypepotamus is one of them. You subscribe to us right?
Atlanta’s most sought after employer can be found taking up an entire floor of the hip-new-mixed-use-behemoth, Ponce City Market. We’re pealing back the banana and giving you a deep dive into MailChimp’s beautiful new home. For the full effect whip out your waffle maker, string up your kitty garland, and salivate over the crave-worthy culture of this Atlanta institution. Want in? Apply to one of their many openings for creative and tech talent.
