Summary List Placement
Twilio, the cloud communications company, has emerged as a major winner in the pandemic economy, with its stock price more than tripling since January, giving it a market cap of some $48 billion.
Founded in 2008 in the midst of the Great Recession, Twilio builds technology for developers to help them build apps that can send text messages or make phone calls. That’s helped customers like grocery delivery service Instacart and medical record software giant Epic keep pace with the increased demands of the present moment.
Against that backdrop, Twilio is still growing: Not only does it plan to acquire the customer data analytics company Segment for $3.2 billion, it’s also still hiring.
