About

About Aampe, in short

Aampe is an experimentation layer for a company’s communication stack. Aampe’s APIs enable its customers to learn user preferences (true personalization) through communication. It automates the otherwise manual content creation, experimental design, conversion tracking, and ongoing iterations. Aampe continuously tests different message strategies to understand which attributes drive customer engagement. Check out our blog to learn more.

Aampe was started by experts in data science, data engineering, human behavior, and product development. We are a small, funded, seed-round company looking to scale the offering. (And we love our investors!) We have a supportive culture focused on execution.
History

Our History, Why we founded

In all companies, across all industries, we saw the same problem: communication is key. There is lots of low hanging fruit to improve dialog and connection between companies and customers. Often the people drafting the copy don’t have good visibility on the connections between their content and engagement. (We were those people.) We had the benefit of working with top engineering teams to build custom personalization tools, based on ongoing experimentation and iteration, to increase customer engagement and delight. We want to provide every company with the ability to improve their customer dialog, at scale.
