Infographic: 2012 in Review


Posted on

What an exceptional year it was for SendGrid.  The infographic below highlights all of the most important milestones.  When I started in July of 2010 as employee #36, I could have never imagined that in just a year and a half later, we would be a company of over 100 people, sending more than 7 billion emails in a single month with over 100,000 customers.

I’m extremely proud to be part of an organization that puts resources into growth, innovation and the happiness of our employees.  It truly is a unique place to work with a focus on the 4H philosophy.  Looking forward to another incredible year in 2013! Did I mention we are hiring?
