SendGrid is a proven cloud-based email platform that successfully delivers over 17B customer engagement emails each month for Internet and mobile-based customers like Pinterest, Airbnb, Pandora, Hubspot, Spotify, Uber, Linkedin and FourSquare, as well as more traditional enterprises like Taco Bell, Walmart, Intuit and Costco.

Founded in 2009, after graduating from the TechStars program, SendGrid has developed a cloud based service that solves the challenge of email delivery by delivering emails on behalf of companies. SendGrid eliminates the complexity of sending email, saving time and money, while providing reliable delivery to the inbox. With over a decade of thought-leadership backed by a stellar record of delivering email, SendGrid is climbing to new heights.

Go build the next big thing. We’ll make sure your email gets delivered. SendGrid was started by three engineers who were frustrated when their emails didn’t get delivered so they built an app for email deliverability. The concept took off. We now send more than 19 billion emails every month and were recently named “One of the Top 16 OnDemand Cloud Computing Private Companies to Watch” because of our innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.

We have smart leaders who listen to their core constituents — Developers. Our focus has always been on achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction. SendGrid has grown simply because we solve web developer’s email headaches. And these same developers love to share information on how to resolve common problems in their industry. As such, we’ve become the solution of choice for the developer community because of the value we provide and their positive reviews.
