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

Developer

At age 14, Danny programmed a Pythagoras solver that became very popular at his local high school.

Two years later, he developed a bot program for a game called Runescape that sold well over 1000 copies. That’s when he got hooked on building products that help other people accomplish what they want.

In his spare time, Danny likes to enjoy great food, read books or drive a motorcycle.
