Courier is a startup company that provides a platform for developers to build and manage notifications and messaging across various channels. The company was founded in 2018 by Troy Goode and John Higginbotham, both of whom had experience working on developer tools and infrastructure at companies like Twilio and SendGrid.

The company is based in San Francisco, California, and has received significant investment from top-tier venture capital firms, including Matrix Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Slack Fund.

Since its founding, Courier has gained recognition for its innovative approach to developer tools and has won several awards and accolades, including being named a Gartner Cool Vendor in the category of CRM Customer Service and Support, and being listed among the top 100 startups in San Francisco by The Hundert.

As a young company, Courier has evolved quickly to meet the needs of its users. Initially focused on providing a simple, flexible API for developers to send notifications via email, SMS, and push notifications, the company has since expanded its offering to include support for additional channels like Slack, WhatsApp, and voice. Courier has also added features like message personalization, analytics, and targeting to help developers create more effective and engaging notifications.

Courier is a privately held company and has not yet gone public. The company has a flat organizational structure, with a focus on collaboration and autonomy among teams.

Courier’s technical specs and infrastructure are designed to provide reliable and scalable messaging for developers. The platform is built on a modern tech stack, with a microservices architecture that enables rapid iteration and deployment. The company uses AWS as its cloud infrastructure provider and leverages services like DynamoDB, S3, and Elastic Beanstalk to provide highly available and performant messaging services.

In terms of security, Courier has implemented several measures to protect its platform and user data. These include encrypting all data in transit and at rest, using multi-factor authentication for administrative access, and performing regular security audits and penetration testing.

Courier offers a variety of APIs for developers to integrate with its platform, including:

Notification API: allows developers to send notifications to users across various channels, including email, SMS, push notifications, and more.

Templates API: enables developers to create customizable message templates for different use cases.

Subscriptions API: allows developers to manage user preferences and subscriptions to specific messaging channels.

Events API: provides developers with real-time data on message status and delivery.

Courier places a strong emphasis on its relationship with developers, providing extensive documentation, a robust developer community, and support for multiple programming languages and frameworks. The company also offers a free tier for developers to try out the platform and has a transparent pricing model based on usage.

In terms of API performance, Courier aims to provide fast and reliable messaging for developers. The company has implemented caching and load balancing techniques to ensure that messages are delivered quickly and efficiently.

Since its founding, Courier has experienced only minimal downtime, thanks in part to its use of AWS and other high-availability services.

Looking to the future, Courier plans to continue expanding its platform and adding new channels and features to support the evolving needs of developers. The company also aims to grow its user base and deepen its relationships with existing customers by providing exceptional support and service. Overall, Courier is well-positioned to continue its success as a leading provider of developer messaging tools.
