Eight is Great!

It seems a little immodest to wish ourselves a Happy Birthday, but we feel compelled to celebrate the fact that today is the 7th anniversary of the founding of Return Path. As someone who has been here since Day Two, I’ve had a front row seat for the whole wild ride. It hasn’t been dull!

And boy does Year 8 look exciting! New products, new services, new marketing programs … we’ve got lots of irons in the fire and we are poised to execute across a wider market than we ever imagined. Of course none of this — past, present or future — would be possible without the combined support of our clients, employees and investors.

So, what’s our biggest challenge? We need a lot more amazing, talented people to get us from where we are today to where we want to be next year and beyond. This isn’t just a Return Path problem – David Baker alluded to the talent crunch in our industry in his Email Insider column.

But we think, again immodestly, that we offer an employee experience that is second to none. And we are putting a lot of corporate resources and focus against this challenge. So be looking for lots of new, smart faces here.

If you are interested in helping us make Year 8 the huge success we know it can be, check out our Careers page. Don’t see a specific job that interests you? Email us anyway – there just might be something coming (very soon) down the road.

By the way, if you’re curious what our fearless leader, Matt Blumberg has to say about this historic milestone, check out his post on OnlyOnce.
