Our mission is to unlock humanity’s potential to work together. We provide simple tools to remove complexity when building embedded email and scheduling experiences, allowing world-class teams to think big, innovate, and build better products.
Inspiration for the next big idea can take many forms. For Christine Spang, Co-Founder & CTO of Nylas, inspiration came out of frustration.
Setting out to build an extensible, open source email client, Spang and her MIT classmates encountered a frustrating challenge: accessing data from email service providers was (and still is) HARD. This challenge is faced by virtually every B2B software company.
From that, Nylas was born.
Nylas securely powers email, calendar, and contacts integrations so you don’t waste months building out infrastructure. Our APIs unlock valuable insights from communications data, empowering companies to quickly launch email and scheduling solutions that drive more engaging customer experiences.
