Mailjet has offices in New-York, Londres, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Barcelone, Sofia, Toronto, Amsterdam and Ho Chi Minh City.

“Now that Mailjet and Mailgun have joined forces, our objective is to become the most used emailing platform in the world”, comments Will Conway, Mailgun’s CEO. “Mailjet distinguishes itself by its ability to understand and answer European clients expectations, its local presence and intuitive interface. This acquisition provides Mailgun with a unique opportunité to reinforce its global presence and to offer large international companies the experience of expert European teams”.

Alven is proud to have supported Mailjet’s development into a leader in email marketing for the past 6 years.
