Our story

Pumble was launched in 2020 by COING. After building Clockify, a successful time tracking app, we decided to turn our attention to the team collaboration space.

We felt that large companies such as Slack and Microsoft Teams were overcharging for their services. They offer a free plan but quickly trap customers into expensive paid plans needed to access the basic functionality of message history.

So, we decided to create our own team chat app and offer it to anyone for absolutely free. Why? We know that each dollar counts when you are a startup and we believe every team should be able to have access to their data without having to pay a fortune.

Careers

How we keep Pumble free

The #1 question we receive all the time is: "How do you make money if the service is free? What's the catch?"

We have paid plans that have additional features aimed towards professionals, plus we offer paid self-hosted edition aimed towards enterprises who need to keep all data on their own premises.

When something good is offered for free, like Pumble, it usually comes with a hidden price - most usually it's privacy, something the tech industry is notorious for. That's not the case with Pumble.

We never sell or share any data with anyone. Why? Because we don't have to. We don't have investors or shareholders hungry for profit, so we don't face pressure to make a quick buck by any means necessary.

How can we afford this? First, we make Pumble accessible to everyone, and then we provide even more value to those on a paid subscription:

  • The basic version is free and has everything you need, so anyone can easily get started. This lets us make team collaboration accessible to everyone.
  • Some teams decide to upgrade to a paid plan so they can have some more storage or access some extra features.
  • Some companies want to roll out Pumble to their 1,000+ teams, but they need absolute control over data. In those cases, we offer a license that lets companies keep Pumble on a private server (usually their own, and sometimes on a private cloud).

This structure lets us democratize team collaboration for everyone, without ever needing to make a profit at the cost of someone's privacy.

We hope you enjoy using Pumble as much as we enjoy developing it. If you have any questions or feedback, send us an email - we always love to hear from our users!
