Who We Are

The Nylas APIs make it easy for developers to build simple yet sophisticated email, calendar, and contacts integrations into software applications. Companies like Pipedrive, Lever, NewsCorp, Velocify, Hyundai, and hundreds more leverage our APIs to create amazing email and scheduling features in their products.

We’re proud of our team and fight to include traditionally underrepresented groups of people in tech. Our co-founder, Christine Spang, leads engineering as CTO and has written extensively about our values and our commitment to diversity on our Key Values profile. We actively and regularly work with the entire team to shape our culture to our ideal of honesty, transparency, individual empowerment, and kindness.

Why We Do What We Do
(beyond email)

Email is the largest communication network in the world and is the lingua franca of business. Integrating the contents of an inbox into software applications is a complicated feat, and yet it's incredibly useful for anyone in the business and consumer world. The Nylas API empowers recruiters, sales, and marketers to communicate with context and focus on tasks that require human brainpower -- but that's just the start. Our API powers email and calendaring features in car consoles, digital calendars, and more.

For many new technologies and apps that rely on email and calendar features, we’re the only source for easy integration. Through our APIs, we make development of new apps possible and enable our mission: To empower the world to communicate with context and insight.


Values That Make New Hires Successful at Nylas

We believe that by embodying our values, we can make the world more like the kind of world we want to live in.

Value Growth Over Just Having Answers

We aspire towards humbleness in one’s own abilities, a strong growth-mindset, and an innate desire to pass on knowledge.

Value Diversity and Inclusion

We believe in inclusivity and strive to make our company an aspirational example of a better, more human tech company. We reject racism, sexism, and homophobia. We want people who couldn’t be successful elsewhere because they don’t look or sound like what society expects successful people to look like to work here and to be given the chance they deserve.

Value Ideas Over Hierarchy

Many of us have founded companies and we aren’t here for titles. We expect everyone to be able to share their opinions and advocate for what they believe is best for our users and our team.

Value Collaboration Over Being “Heads-Down”

We are an extremely collaborative team — so this is not a “headphones on and head down” team. Focus is of course important and always in balance; however we have a strong bias towards working together.

Value Solving Today’s Customer Needs Over Implementation Purity

Our customers are developers and product managers, and we’re here to make their lives better. We value practical and simple solutions that immediately solve real customer pain.

Value Entrepreneurial Spirit

We are building a brand new office in NYC and would love to have more pioneers join our eastward expansion.

Bring Your Whole Self to Work

Nylas is a place where you can bring your whole self to work and be accepted as who you are. It's a place that values growth and learning and puts high value on empowering employees to reach peak performance. And we know it's healthy to have a life outside of work – so we strive to plan projects in a way that supports healthy work-life balance.

Oh, and we’re a dog-friendly office; fur friends welcome.
