Denver—SendGrid has recently opened its global headquarters at 1801 California St. in downtown Denver, Colo. The office was designed to hold more than double the current Colorado employee-base to accommodate its growth plan of 900 employees globally by the year 2020.
“The opening of our new Denver headquarters is an important milestone for SendGrid as we continue our evolution and maturation as a market-leading SaaS communication provider,” said Sameer Dholakia, CEO of SendGrid. “We’re excited to have all of our over 260 Colorado employees together in one office so we can continue to innovate and collaborate as we attract new customers and introduce new features to our existing customers.”
The office was designed with a staircase in the reception area that connects the fifth and sixth floor to encourage interactions and conversations between employees. SendGrid’s new brand and logo, launched in June of 2016, is incorporated in the modern design of the ceiling, floor, walls and other materials and color choices. The office features open workspaces and collaboration spaces that are placed along the windows, rather than the interior corridor, ensuring light flow.
“SendGrid invested in Colorado’s first ever WiFi-enabled shuttle service to connect our employee-base and office in Boulder with our new global headquarters in Denver,” Yancey Spruill, CFO & COO of SendGrid, said in a statement. “Connecting the two communities enables us to recruit from both talent pools in an innovative and productive way that is critical to our 4H culture.”
