Today is Jimdo’s 7th birthday! Our teams have been celebrating all over the world in our various offices: Hamburg, Shanghai, Tokyo, and San Francisco. This ever-growing team of 170, which has doubled in the past 18 months, has helped our users create more than 10 million websites. Our mobile app, launched in August 2013, was named one of Apple’s Best of 2013. We’re actively working to make the Jimdo experience even better, and we’re fully committed to helping you share your passion, build your business, and do great things.
Jimdo is differentWe’re excited for so many reasons on this day. For one, we have managed to grow our company organically rather than accepting large outside investments. We’ve been able to focus on our product and our customers, instead of a financial windfall or a quick exit. We have grown to become an international company by building on our own success, which ultimately means that we grow when you are successful. When we help you accomplish your goals online, we know that we’re making the right product.
We also don’t spend exorbitant amounts of money on advertising—we think that’s an unsustainable way of doing business. Instead, we work to continuously improve our product and offer incredible customer support in 12 languages. We work every day to support our customers, and every day new customers join Jimdo because they’ve heard about the kind of company we are.
Our focus is strongOur three founders—Christian, Fridtjof, and Matthias—have truly built an incredible organization. We have a diverse team with a passionate focus on culture and community. This passion for each other translates to our product. Last year we grew the size of our development teams so that we could release an incredible mobile app. This year we’re using our development resources to improve the core Jimdo experience and further expand our mobile platform.
We appreciate your supportThe only thing we are more passionate about than our culture and our product is you. Our customers. Our advocates. Meeting you in person, hearing the passion in your voice, reading your stories online, and seeing all of your awesome Jimdo websites drives us to be the best we can be. Your success and your happiness is our best marketing.
Thank you from all of us here at Jimdo. We truly appreciate your support. We hope you’re happy with our product releases this coming year, because we’re incredibly proud of what we’re working on. As always, we welcome your feedback; everything we’re building is for you.
