Our Story

Former Ixigo colleagues, Rahul Nanwani, Manu Chaudhary, and Somesh Khatkar, recognized a gap in the market – the lack of seamless image optimization tools that could effortlessly integrate into existing setups.

This insight gave birth to ImageKit in October 2016. Quickly developing the MVP in three months, was officially unveiled in January 2017.

Starting with solving for image optimization and transformation challenges, we quickly adapted to the changing needs of businesses by adding a Video Optimization, Transformation, and Streaming product to our portfolio in 2022.

In the first quarter of 2023, we went even further, introducing a Digital Asset Management platform to help marketers and creatives handle their ever-growing digital assets more effectively.

Today, we processes over a billion media assets every day.

To stay on top of technology, our lean and agile team is hard at work developing next-gen AI tools to change how businesses look at asset creation, editing, search/discovery, transformation and processing.
