Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Braze was founded out of an opportunity to build a company in the mobile space, inspired by the success of Android. This decision was driven by the belief that technology can help build stronger and more valuable relationships between brands and customers. It is now a leading customer engagement platform that powers connections between consumers and the brands they love.

Braze does this by delivering messaging experiences through push notifications, apps, and email, built specifically for today's always-connected customers. This replaces badly integrated tools and outdated databases, making customer relationships more personalised through cross-channel messaging, journey orchestration and AI-powered experimentation and optimisation. Through this, Braze allows any marketer to collect and take action on any amount of data from any source, so they can creatively engage with customers in real time, across channels from one platform.

As a venture-backed company, its clients now include Headspace, Canva, Max, Headspace, Domino's, Peloton and Depop. These clients use Braze to launch more effective messaging campaigns with less effort in the current mobile-first world. No doubt its placement on the 2024 US News Best Technology Companies To Work For list will draw in more talent, whilst its growth to 10 new offices across North America, APAC regions and Europe indicates promising growth.
