Nylas provides productivity infrastructure solutions for modern software. Over 200,000+ developers use their powerful suite of tools to quickly and securely build productivity features into their applications, resulting in 12 billion+ API requests per day.

The number of businesses using their platform is rapidly increasing due to the Nylas infrastructure generating huge operational savings through more productive, secure, and intelligently-automated development cycles.

The company has remained focused on scaling its integrated and productivity-driven developer experience as well as furthering its investment in disruptive technologies that automate workflows and seamlessly integrate technologies such as conversational AI, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and cross-system intelligent automation.
