BOULDER, Colo. — SendGrid, the leading email delivery platform for email that matters, today announced that it is delivering more than 1 billion emails per month for leading job and recruiting companies including ZipRecruiter, Glassdoor and TheLadders. These emails aim to engage recipients to help fill the growing number of job positions available in a labor market that has created more than 200,000 jobs in thirteen of the past fourteen months—the first time this has happened since 1995.

ZipRecruiter allows employers to find quality candidates by posting a job to more than 100 leading job boards and social networks with one click. Job seekers also receive email alerts with postings that are tailor made for their skill set and location. ZipRecruiter needed an end-to-end email solution that guaranteed excellent deliverability rates and flexibility to ensure job seekers receive relevant alerts in a timely fashion.
Email delivery and engagement drives traffic to job sites, which in turn drive sales, account upgrades and other types of revenue opportunities. ZipRecruiter has seen a meaningful increase in deliverability since it began implementing SendGrid’s email platform over a year ago.
“SendGrid just works,” said Matt Plummer, vice president of programmatic monetization at ZipRecruiter. “We love the support: SendGrid detects problems before they ever happen and we don’t have to think twice about deliverability, we know our emails will always make it to the inbox.”
More than 11 years ago, TheLadders began as the go-to job site for professionals looking for positions earning at least $100,000 annually. Since then, the company has expanded its service to provide job-matching for all types of positions for more than 8 million job-seekers, and more than 95,000 employers as well as recruiters.
SendGrid provided TheLadders with an innovative email infrastructure that was reliable, flexible and scalable, as well as cost-effective. With SendGrid, TheLadders is now able to access a delivery engine to send millions of transactional emails, newsletters and other types of marketing emails for its 8 million users every month.
Organizations spend unnecessary time and investment sending emails through an in-house email platform. SendGrid allows companies to successfully deliver custom emails based on criteria such as company location, job title, goals and salary.
“SendGrid’s simple to use, but sophisticated features matches what we needed as we were scaling our user base,” said Paige Tintle, marketing manager at TheLadders. “With SendGrid, we can be confident that our critical email campaigns are going to be sent every single time.”
Glassdoor is a jobs and recruiting marketplace that is changing the way people find jobs, and companies recruit top talent. Today, Glassdoor, the fastest growing jobs site in the US, looks to reach its 30 million member job seeker community who span 190 countries with the relevant job openings and company insights at the right time.
“We love SendGrid’s scalability,” said Preeti Kelapure, product marketing manager at Glassdoor. “Being able to scale in the way that we need to, we send a lot of email and being able to get that out in a timely fashion is critical for our business.”
SendGrid is the leading email delivery platform for email that matters. SendGrid’s proven, cloud-based email platform successfully delivers over 18B customer engagement emails each month for Internet and mobile-based customers like Airbnb, Pandora, Hubspot, Spotify, Uber, and FourSquare as well as more traditional enterprises like Walmart, Intuit and Costco.
