​​OneSignal, a leading customer engagement platform, continues its rapid growth with key hires.

When someone picks up a smartphone, the first thing they’ll see is a push notification - maybe there’s a breaking news alert, football scores, or order status update… Whatever it is, chances are the message was sent using OneSignal.

OneSignal is the dominant player in the mobile and web push space, used by 76% of the top million sites with push notifications (source: builtwith).

Usage of the push notification service is up 50% since September: OneSignal now delivers 4.5 billion messages every single day. Also in the last six months, OneSignal made key hires with the addition of Lee Munroe, Lydia Fayal, Matt Foley, Teddy Lee, and Jonathan Tillotson.
