How to Get Hired
We asked SendGrid for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
People who join the SendGrid family need to be both outstanding at what they do AND embody our 4H values and culture:
Honest - We are transparent and therefore share information and feedback freely. We act with integrity and our actions are those that would make our loved ones proud. We are honest with ourselves, and use data to provide the best insights. We rely on open and transparent communication.
Humble - We also 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.”
Hungry - We have high expectations, and expect high performance of ourselves and our teams. We constantly look to innovate and improve.
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.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Show a genuine interest in being part of our organization. We love candidates who do their homework, have a general understanding of our business, and that show they are hungry and willing to learn. They should connect with our recruiters or other employees via LinkedIn or other online networking sites. They should follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our Blog to learn more about SendGrid. Once they apply, they should make certain their resume is well writter - no typos - and should include a great cover letter stating why they think they are a great fit for the role.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Over the next few years, as we scale from 100M in revenue and beyond, and from 350 to 1,000 employees, we are looking for candidates that have similar experience of growth, change, and maturity. The ability to adapt to change and bring new ideas to the table makes us better, faster
