Orange County Business Journal and Best Companies Group Showcase Top
Companies Benefiting Orange County's Economy, Workforce and Businesses

SendGrid, Inc. (NYSE:SEND), a leading
digital communication platform
that drives engagement and growth,
was recently named one of the 2018 Best Places to Work in Orange
County.
The county-wide survey and awards program was
designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment
in Orange County, California, benefiting the county's economy, its
workforce and businesses.

"SendGrid's Orange County presence has continued to grow at a steady
pace as we continue to invest in our Irvine office located at the heart
of the region's rapidly growing technology center," said Pattie Money,
Chief People Officer at SendGrid. "Without question, we attribute this
award to our commitment to creating an environment where we are able to
do our best work and raise the bar at SendGrid every day. We are honored
to be recognized for our dedication and efforts in making SendGrid a
Best Place to Work and appreciate all of our Gridders who are also
committed to ensuring we're a great place to work. It's a true team
effort."

SendGrid opened
its new Orange County office in March 2018, nearly tripling the
footprint of the previous office. Located at 400 Spectrum Center Drive
in Irvine, CA, the new office design incorporates input and feedback
from existing employees. The space features an open floor plan design,
floor-to-ceiling windows, pairing rooms for engineers to code together
and many collaborative workspaces.

Organizations from across the county entered the two-part process to
determine the Best Places to Work in Orange County. The
first part consisted of evaluating each employer's workplace policies,
practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth
approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of
an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the
process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The
combined scores determined the top organizations and the final ranking.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process
in Orange County and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to
determine the final ranking.

The ranking of the winning organizations was released via a special
section of the Orange County Business Journal's July 23 issue.

SendGrid's Orange County presence has continued to grow at a steady pace
since its opening in 2009. The company currently has over 400 employees
spread across its Denver, Redwood City, Orange County and London
locations. To learn more about job openings at SendGrid, visit www.sendgrid.com/careers.
