On this week’s episode of The Grid, we had the pleasure of hosting one of SendGrid’s customers—Uber! Mike Kadin, Senior Engineering Manager at Uber, is not only easy and fun to talk to, he also possesses a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things tech.

As someone who didn’t jump straight into an engineering role after college (his career started as a high school teacher), Mike brings an interesting perspective to engineering, management, and what it takes to be successful in the industry.

Tune in below to hear about:

  • How Uber uses SendGrid
  • Uber’s communication tech stack
  • How email deliverability affects his business
  • What it’s like working for a company that places great value on innovation
  • Mike’s advice for the next up and coming generation of engineers
  • And more!
