They seem to be a legitimate service for sending automated e-mail. I received a spam mail over their service and reported it (https://sendgrid.com/report_spam). They answered within a day and said they would take care of the user/customer/whatever who sent the spam. Hard to tell if it worked, but I haven't received any more spam from that address (yet).
Spam message "My News: AECOM Riding High on Contract Wins, URS Integration;" supposedly from "Owler <email@example.com>" whatever that means. Header: o1678977x88.outbound-mail.sendgrid.net ([220.127.116.11]). "Delivering your transactional and marketing email through one reliable platform." Spam with gravy.
Also, from one of the posts here: "Most importantly - Bulk Mail does NOT equal Spam!
Do some research!"
I do lots of research, FYI. Also, bulk mail sent without the permission of the recipient = spam. Do some research..

The "Online Card Verification" was a link to a phishing site.
By providing an email address to workinretail.com, you will receive no automated notification of opt-in to email from jobs.net routed through sendgrid.net (as shown in the email header)
https://www.mywot.com/scorecard/workinretail.com (currently green)
https://www.mywot.com/scorecard/jobs.net (currently green)
I found no notification on the workinretail.com website, that an email would come come from "jobs.net" or be routed through "sendgrid.net". Spam by obscurity.
If sendgrid wants a green rating from me, have a new policy requirement for senders like workinretail.com, owned by Careerbuilder.com, to post a notification that "sendgrid.net" will be used.
As Gregretrobot mentions, there are some notoable users of this service. Some mentioned at the following locations:
http://mktg-dev.sendgrid.net (bottom of the page)
http://mktg-dev.sendgrid.net/email-marketing (bottom of page; Caplinked)
First off - I don't work for these guys.
SendGrid is a bulkmail service used by MANY companies (Pinterest, Rackspace, Foursquare, Pandora, Spotify, AirBnB, etc), including some security product vendors. If you use any of those services, every single email you receive from them actually comes through SendGrid: password reset emails, activity notifications, problem reports, transactional data, etc. This allows companies to coordinate their various notification features and alerts without having to directly install their own mail infrastructure.
Customers are expected to follow TOS rules - the provider itself does NOT knowingly use non-opt-in spamming, and closely polices abuse of their infrastructure accordingly.
When you receive emails coming from SendGrid, you are actually being sent mail from the 3rd party customer using the service. THEY are the ones that the various users here screaming "SPAM! SPAM! SPAM!!" should be hyperventilating about.
Most importantly - Bulk Mail does NOT equal Spam!
Do some research!
