Challenging the Status Quo in Messaging

Sam Smith

Sam Smith

Chief Technology Officer

Like a hot day at the pool and a tall ice cream cone, our team fits together just right. We like our messaging tech the same way we like our sunscreen. Slathered on thick (with AI that is). It's a whole new world out there and we've got the right fish to solve it. From Data Science, to Sales, to Design, to Engineering and Marketing, our background is littered with marketing tech and science alike. Including ExactTarget (hello OG email marketing platform), Roche (I see you scientists), and more (mhhhmmm).

Want to chit-chat? Shoot an email to and we'll get back to you ASAP. Until then, just keep swimming.
