Round 2 from our Sr. Director of Product Management, Scott Williamson!
I joined SendGrid in July 2013 as the company’s first Product Management (PM) leader. At that point, the company was four years old, with 150 employees and an impressive revenue growth rate. Installing and optimizing PM at a rapidly scaling company is hard, so I’d like to share some of our learnings as we tackled various challenges, in hopes that ... Read more ›

So thankful to have our SVP, Chief Legal Counsel, Michael Tognetti, de-mystify some CAN-SPAM myths for us.
As a lawyer, one of my favorite party tricks is to correct people who misquote the law. I don’t get invited to many parties. In casual conversation around our busiest SendGrid office, I often hear misstatements of the law, particularly the relevant CAN-SPAM Act (Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing enacted in 2003) and I’ll start the awkward conversation with “Well, actually…” I suspect the reason our employees misqu...

Great transparency from our CFO/COO, Yancey Spruill. 2016 is going to be a great year!

What is a good email blast service where I control the removes. Constant contact has shut me down twice and makes all my subscribers re-opt in. I want to control the unsubscribes. Kengivens@usmstexas.com

It was bound to happen: the two things that take up most of my time-- email and reality tv--collided.
You heard it here first…we all have something to learn from reality TV. Hard to believe, but it’s true. When first brainstorming this blog post, I was hesitant to so publicly admit my obsession with reality TV. Will readers take me seriously after I admit that I watch every episode of every Real Housewives franchise (including Real Housewives of Cheshire) and that after each new season of Survivor wraps (yes, it’s still on!), I start filling out ...
