About

We’re a fully distributed team, meaning that we’re working on our plugins from around the world!

In early 2013, our founder Danny was tired of having to reinvent the wheel every time he needed to add sign-up methods to a site.

That’s why he set out with a simple goal: build a powerful tool that makes adding the most effective sign-up methods to your WordPress powered site easy.

Now, almost 3 years later the MailChimp for WordPress plugin is running on nearly half a million sites. We’re super proud of that!

That said, we are well aware that software isn’t everything. Although we invest a huge amount of creative energy into developing MailChimp for WordPress, we also focus on making every interaction with us something to write home about.

Danny van Kooten

Founder & Developer

Danny has been developing software ever since he got his first computer at age 6. Now in his late twenties, he still dreams about code at times.

In his spare time, Danny likes to spend time with his daughter, eat, read, listen to music, attempt to play the piano, go for a long run or sleep.
