The Playable Story
Playable was founded in 2017 with the purchase of the foundation patents for adding video content to email.
Video is the most engaging type of content. Email is the marketing channel that delivers the highest ROI. But video and email have never played well together, allowing social channels to overtake email in user experience.
Playable has solved this problem. We’ve built our Video Email SaaS product, and now any marketer can add video to their email campaigns. Video that plays automatically in the inbox.
Our customers increase their video views, get more clicks, and sell more stuff.
Our addressable market is very big: 100 billion permission-based emails are sent every day. USD 270 billion is spent on video marketing each year.
Why Join The Team Now?
Last year we grew by 300%. We have 1000’s of paying customers, ranging from SMEs to blue-chip enterprises.
We have 10x more free customers who send out “Powered by Playable” branded video emails, as viral distribution.
Our technology integrates with all email platforms. It is natively embedded within Mailchimp, Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Emarsys, and others. We will continue working with all email platforms until video-in-email is ubiquitous.
Playable has already achieved profitability without any dedicated marketing or sales teams.
2022: Playable is now hiring for key sales, marketing and partnership development roles.
We’re just getting started! There’s still over 99 billion emails sent every day that don’t yet have a video!
Our video email product has a clear path to USD 100m revenue.
Beyond that, we have patent-pending AI tech that leverages our unique dataset of what video content works best for whom. We are building video marketing automation products that truly democratize video marketing, making it available and data-driven and impactful for all marketers everywhere.

The following things are important to the Playable team. We don't always get it perfectly* right, but this is what we strive for.
Everybody has a voice - we strive for a constructive and inclusive debate and collaboration, and welcome positive input from all angles. An idea evolves to become stronger when challenged, even by the same person who is proposing it. Mutual respect is a necessary ingredient for healthy and positive debate.
Focus on the user - we often debate about what's the best thing to do. We've found that the most useful way to navigate these decisions is to focus on what's best for the user.
Data-driven experiments - we often debate about what's best for the user! Ideally we'll build an experiment to compare the alternatives, capturing real user data to measure what's best for the user.
Rapid testing of ideas - sometimes we already have the answer to customer hypotheses in our existing data. We have lots of data. Other times, ideas can be tested by instrumenting the current product, or asking customers some questions. Other times we quickly build an MVP to test ideas.
*Done is better than perfect - we borrow this one from Sheryl Sandberg. Perfection can be the enemy of progress.
Technology-led innovation - sometimes users won't know or understand what's possible, until it's presented to them as an MVP. Our Video Email product started as largely tech-led innovation, then we started acquiring customers and it became largely customer-led. We've now achieved a scale where we can devote a proportion of time and resources to more tech-led innovation, and we are working on getting that balance right.
Simplify - sometimes the best thing to do is remove a product feature. We need to get better at this.
Earn trust - if you say you’re going to do something, do it. If you're not sure how to do something you're asked, say so.
Results-based - before, during and beyond COVID, we embrace the benefits of remote work. A trusted and empowered team doesn't benefit from investing time on commuting every day. Delivering goals and objectives and metrics is more important. Travel and co-location when it's co-beneficial.
Meritocracy - when you demonstrate expertise through results, you earn more trust and responsibility in that area.
