We Live by Our 4H Culture

We started with 4 words: Happy, Hungry, Honest, and Humble. This one-of-a-kind recipe creates a diverse and inclusive culture that endures both times of growth and times of challenge.


We love what we do. It shows in the positive and constructive attitude we bring to everything we do. We know how to have a good time; life is more than work.


We have high expectations and expect high performance of ourselves and our teams. We constantly look to innovate and improve. We play to win and keep raising the bar to deliver results.


We exemplify a customer-first mindset across everything we do, always learning from our colleagues, partners, and customers. We are one team, focused on the “we” rather than the “I.”


We are transparent, sharing information and feedback freely. We act with integrity, are honest with ourselves, and use data to provide the best insights.

We are Passionate About Our Craft

Every team member at SendGrid is empowered to play their role, stretch themselves, and achieve success together. But we’re not just excited about our jobs—we’re passionate about our craft and the customers we serve everyday.

Our Leaders are Selfless Mentors

Our leaders look at themselves as servants to their teams and demonstrate a “people first” mentality in every decision. We are devoted to cultivating leaders at every level through extensive training and development.

We Cultivate Happy Humans

We offer a leading built-to-scale total rewards package that includes benefits, perks, and work-life integration.

Work-Life Integration

Flexible schedules, 3 weeks of vacation, unlimited sick time, most major holidays plus 1 floating holiday, personal days, parental leave, and 1 volunteer day. Life is more than work.


Competitive salaries, excellent health benefits, generous allowances (cell, wellness, commuting), meaningful stock options, and a pay-for-performance philosophy.

Love Where You Work

State of the art offices, free lunch everyday from a variety of restaurants, a fully stocked kitchen, and a bunch of fun activities like book clubs and team sports, our office culture aims to keep our team happy and...never hungry!


Once a year, we fly all of our team members to a beautiful destination resort in Mexico for our annual kick off meeting! The mission is to celebrate the previous year’s success, align on the year ahead, and build connective tissue.

Our Hiring Philosophy

“The most critical decision we make is determining who gets the next SendGrid hoodie. In a team sport, having the right teammates is priority #1. Nothing in our business is more important. We are selecting people who we believe we want to join the SendGrid family—who will be both outstanding at what they do AND embody our values and culture. Every new hire we make is an opportunity to make our strong team even stronger.” - Sameer Dholakia

Diversity and Inclusion at the Grid

We view diversity as a key driver of our company’s success. We are dedicated to building and strengthening diversity and inclusion at SendGrid, and are committed to helping create a greater awareness of imbalances that challenge our industry today.
