I’m excited to announce that Raygun has acquired Zing Design!
This is a very natural combination and the entire Raygun team is excited to have them joining us on our mission to help the world build perfect software.
Raygun Limited (previously Mindscape Limited) has agreed to acquire Zing Design. The deal will involve key Zing Design staff & assets joining Raygun. Zheng Li, founder & CEO of Zing Design will be joining Raygun as Director of Product.
“This is an excellent outcome for Raygun and Zing Design” said Raygun Co-founder Jeremy Boyd. “We have been expanding our team rapidly in the last 12 months and to have Zheng Li & her team join Raygun will help accelerate our already high growth. We are especially excited by the emphasis on User Experience (UX) and customer centric thinking that Zheng and her team will bring to Raygun”
“My team and I couldn’t be more excited to be joining forces with Raygun. We’ve been working with the team at Raygun on early design work and recent marketing campaigns so we already know we work very well together” said Zing Design CEO, Zheng Li. “Being able to help direct such a loved product to even greater heights really excites me.”
The Zing Design team will be completing various contractual obligations over the near term before moving into the Raygun office and focusing entirely on their new roles on the Raygun team.
