Celebrating a decade of success with our incredible team and customers

Celebrating 10 years of Nylas — key milestones, breakthrough innovations, and the strong community we’ve built alongside our dedicated team and loyal customers.

Nylas 10 year anniversary

It feels like just yesterday we embarked on this remarkable journey. And now, as Nylas celebrates its 10th anniversary, I can’t help but be overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement. The past decade has been nothing short of extraordinary, and it’s all thanks to the dedication of our fantastic team and the trust our customers have placed in us.

Let’s take a moment to reflect on our remarkable achievements together and look forward to what the future holds.

A decade of empowering communication

Over the years, Nylas has enabled developers to spend less time on their infrastructure and more time building software with limitless potential. We’ve been privileged to be a part of over 1,000 customers’ success stories, enabling them to harness billions of interactions involving email correspondence, appointment scheduling, and much more. It’s been awe-inspiring to witness our platform powering organizations worldwide from diverse industries like healthcare, real estate, e-commerce, HR & recruiting, and many others.

A few of my favorite Nylas milestones to highlight: 

  • 2013: Nylas was born with the grand vision to unlock the value trapped in communications data, making it incredibly easy for developers to build software that helps the world communicate and connect better.
  • 2019: We introduced the Nylas Scheduler to the family — the fastest way for developers to add full calendar functionality to their applications.
  • 2021: Nylas raised $120 million in our series C funding round. In the same year, we surpassed 100,000 developers using the platform in nearly 40 countries.
  • 2023: We saw more than a 1000% year-over-year increase in the total number of inboxes, calendars, and contact lists leveraging Nylas APIs. We also hit another milestone, with 250,000 developers in over 40 countries building integrations and features with Nylas, a 150% increase from the prior year.

Our unwavering commitment to excellence has led us to process over 12 billion API requests. We’ve been humbled by our impact on our customers’ businesses, helping them save countless hours and resources and accelerating their time to market with best-in-class features.

A journey of evolution

Since 2013, we’ve grown exponentially. This growth could not have been possible without our team and customers’ support — they are the backbone of our success and the inspiration behind every innovation we introduce.

To further our dedication to innovative solutions tailored for our customers, we recently launched Nylas Assist. This advanced AI-powered chatbot uses large language models to provide developers with relevant answers from Nylas-approved documentation and handy code snippets. Developers using Nylas can access a generative AI-powered knowledge base right in their dashboard, streamlining their coding process without toggling between multiple applications.

Our drive to offer the best technological solutions has also led us to forge multiple strategic partnerships this year. Our collaboration with Devfortress equips organizations with cutting-edge tools and resources, ensuring they can rapidly develop email and scheduling features. Additionally, our alliance with Master of Code Global underscores our vision to lead in delivering pioneering email, scheduling, and next-gen conversational AI chat solutions.

With the market for CPaaS solutions and APIs projected to nearly quadruple by 2027, it’s clear that the digital communication landscape is in a phase of rapid transformation. At the heart of this revolution, Nylas remains committed to pushing the boundaries, ensuring our users are always equipped with the latest, most effective tools. 

The journey from 2013 has been remarkable, but it’s just the beginning. 

Exciting plans for the future

The future has never looked so bright as we move into the next ten years and beyond. Our goal is to keep expanding support for developers and businesses, fostering a global community that’s more connected, efficient, and empowered.

Our Nylas users can expect more transformative developments from us in the coming months and years. And our steadfast commitment to building great developer experiences is at the heart of our advancements. 

But what does it all mean?

Nylas API product enhancements

We’re channeling our energy into further enhancing the reliability and scalability of the Nylas APIs, ultimately improving developer efficiency and refining our customers’ end-user experiences. By doing so, we aim to create an even more streamlined integration process, helping developers accelerate their development cycles.

Stay tuned for exciting updates on the horizon later this year. You won’t want to miss what’s coming up next.

Nylas + AI 

In addition to Nylas Assist, we’re working on more AI-powered features to continue revolutionizing the communication landscape. Our commitment to staying ahead of innovative technology like AI goes beyond mere enhancements; it is about fundamentally reshaping the way we interact with email, calendars, and contacts.

Nylas provides the platform for securely powering email, calendar, and contacts integrations. By doing so, we free developers from the burden of infrastructure building. Our APIs enable them to extract invaluable insights from communication data, transforming raw information into actionable intelligence. 

Moreover, with the rising momentum of generative AI, Nylas offers developers the tools to optimize their programming processes. By integrating Nylas APIs with resources like ChatGPT Bard, and other generative AI tools, developers can design intelligent applications, streamline workflows, and enhance user experiences, all while maximizing communication efficiency.

Our values — trustworthy, playful, nurturing, and unstoppable — are a testament to every individual in our team’s resilience, adaptability, and dedication. 

We will continue pushing our limits, and as we move forward, our refreshed values guide us, helping Nylas stay at the forefront of tech advancement and collaboration. By empowering our team, we can drive organizations to create a better future.
