MailChimp is an email marketing service provider, founded in 2001. It has 3.5 million users that collectively send over 4 billion emails a month through the service.
The company uses an ape as a logo and includes numerous ape-related graphics and jokes on its website and in its communications. There is an option for users to turn these off. The chimp imagery reflects the lighthearted style central to the company's culture.
MailChimp began as a paid service and added a freemium option eight years later. It was originally going to be called ChimpMail, but the name was changed after the company discovered it could not get that domain name.
