Grow with Us

At MaxCDN we like it when our friends do well. Today one of our very good friends just did very, very well: WP Engine raised $15 million in funding from North Bridge Growth Equity. Congratulations to Jason Cohen, Ben Metcalfe, and the rest of their hard working crew.
A little history, Jason reached out to us in 2010 when WP Engine was just starting out and was interested in securing very competitive and very aggressive pricing for his company’s CDN needs. We met his terms and we’ve been working together with WP Engine ever since.
WP Engine can concentrate on its fully-managed WordPress hosting service (which we are customers of), knowing we’ve got their back when it comes to providing their customers with a CDN they can trust.
More importantly, they’ve become an important partner, and their staff has a solid relationship with our staff — giving us the appropriate insight on how to best serve their needs.
By working with us, WP Engine offers our CDN services to some of their base-level customers (a first, so far as they know, in their industry). They’ve grown into one of our largest customers over the last four years.
Helping our customers grow their business is how we grow our business. There’s nothing better than a win-win situation.
