We hear from 1000s of candidates per week on the roles we’re posting. We want to be able to email each of these people at least twice with updates on the roles they’ve applied to. We know these are transactional emails but we’re still worried about the volume of emails we’d be sending to unknown recipients and that this would somehow affect our sender reputation. We know very little about email deliverability.

We’re looking for an expert in this who can come in and advise on how to approach sending all these emails out and who can also help us monitor the status of sender reputation month over month as we begin sending all these emails.

We also want to, eventually, set up opt-in mailing lists to keep people in the loop on future roles and would want help with this kind of thing as well a couple of months down the road.
