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.

Happy

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.

Hungry

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.

Humble

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.”

Honest

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.

We Practice Servant Leadership

Our leaders look at themselves as servants to their teams and demonstrate a “people first” mentality in every decision. We are committed 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 Harmony

Life is more than work. We offer flexible schedules, personalized time off (with no limits beyond reasonableness and ability to do your job), most major holidays, parental leave, and time off for community service.

Compensation

Competitive salaries, excellent health benefits, generous allowances (cell, wellness, commuting), meaningful equity, 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 for you to choose from including interest groups that create opportunities for connection and fun. A few examples include a board game group, hiking club, wine group, and a group that explores area restaurants. It’s hard to love where you work if you don’t love the people you work with! Our culture aims to keep Gridders happy, engaged, in connection with each other, and...never hungry!

KAKO & KASA!

Once a year, we fly all of our team members to a beautiful destination resort for our annual kick off meeting (KAKO)! The mission is to celebrate the previous year’s success, align on the year ahead, and build connective tissue. We come together again in Denver at mid-year for KASA where we align on the 2nd half of the year and celebrate 1st half successes. Can’t wait to share with you what KAKO and KASA stand for!

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. We also have multiple Employee Interest Groups that are Gridder led and Gridder organized. They provide a place of support for team members (and their allies) who share common life experiences and backgrounds. These groups help ensure we have a 4H4ALL culture with inclusion as the cornerstone.

Meet Our Founders

I’d like Gridders to understand that the path to our goals is as important as the goals themselves.

Isaac Saldana, Co-founder, Sr. Software Engineer

You get to work on really challenging problems...and there’s free beer.

Tim Jenkins, Co-founder, Distinguished Engineer

We face an incredibly difficult problem to solve. Not only do we have to scale to meet our customers demands but also be a reliable solution.

Jose Lopez, Co-founder, Software Engineer IV
