We're building a modern email sending platform focused on providing the best developer experience and making sure that your emails don't go to spam.
We launched 7 weeks ago, and already have 6,469 people on the waitlist.
Paul Graham described Resend as “the Stripe for Email”.
Email sending is the kind of thing that you should integrate and forget it, but instead you have…
We need to stop developing emails like it’s 2010 and rethink how email can be done in 2023 and beyond.
We believe that email development needs a revamp. A renovation. Modernized for the way we build apps today.
Typically, you can only send email using HTML or plain text. Although we support both, we're introducing a new way of developing and sending your emails.
With Resend you can code your email using React instead of outdated HTML layouts thanks to our open source project react.email (5.1k stars on GitHub).
When you're ready to send, you just need to import the component, change the props, and you're done.
After sending, you can see the end result and look at how your users received that email.
When I was a CPO at Liferay, I faced the problem of sending emails at scale.
We had high-profile customers complaining about deliverability, and I've been frustrated with existing services ever since.
More recently, as a VP of Developer Experience at WorkOS, I once again had to deal with emails landing in the spam folder.
After looking at all the different solutions out there, I've been obsessed with the idea of solving this problem once and for all.
