One of Denver Startup Week’s biggest events, the Startup Crawl, allows the public a glimpse inside some local startup digs. Last year the Crawl coincided with the grand opening of SendGrid’s Denver office, and now the rapidly growing office is the company’s largest, with over 60 employees.
SendGrid is a cloud-based email service that delivers email on behalf of companies to increase deliverability. SendGrid also offers a scalable email infrastructure, provides metrics, and handles tasks like abiding by anti-spam regulations and maintaining corporate branding.
Josh Anderson first met the SendGrid team at last year’s Startup Crawl, and the following day he received an email asking if he’d be interested in working for the company. “After seeing the office and experiencing the culture firsthand at the startup crawl, it was a no-brainer,” he said.
As SendGrid’s Team Builder, Anderson is helping fuel the company’s continued growth in Colorado. He hopes plenty of people will stop by during the Crawl to get a feel for SendGrid’s culture and vision. “They'll also see a badass office, drink plenty of beer, eat some delicious hors d'oeuvres, and have the opportunity to interact with some really exceptional people,” he added.
PivotDesk and GoSpotCheck will both also be hosting tables at SendGrid’s office during the crawl. PivotDesk is an office-sharing marketplace headquartered in Boulder. GoSpotCheck provides enterprise software that enables employees to gather real-time retail intelligence so managers can spot trends and view urgent issues in the field.
The Startup Crawl begins on Wednesday, September 18 at 2:00 p.m. SendGrid’s office is located on the third floor at 1451 Larimer Street.
