Ladders is the go-to job site for more than 7 million job-seekers and over 86,000 employers and recruiters. While they started more than 11 years ago as a job site focused on positions earning $100,000/year or more, Ladders now helps professional of all types find new positions. In order to keep up with their email communication requirements, Ladders began by creating an in-house email infrastructure. Unfortunately, this solution wasn’t scalable and required valuable time and resources. Ladders knew they needed an email engine that would be flexible and provide the personalization they needed to successfully deliver their email. Ladders moved to a full marketing communications suite to handle their email, and while this solution provided a lot of bells and whistles, it didn’t provide what they really needed: reliability, flexibility, and cost-effective scalability. Ladders’ engineering team led the charge to find the best email service provider (ESP) for their company, and they turned to SendGrid. Matt Chesler, DevOps Architect at Ladders says “SendGrid’s APIs are very well documented and complete. We’ve been able to build exactly what we want on top of the SendGrid email platform.” Ladders now uses SendGrid as their delivery engine to send over 170 million transactional emails, newsletters, and other types of marketing emails to their 7 million users every month.
