Joy Labs / Memo Press Kit


Joy Labs was founded in July 2018 and consists of founders, leaders, and engineers from SendGrid (acq by Twilo), Apple, and others. In 2019 the team began building a platform that will not only improve messaging, but invent new ways to enable borderless communication for consumers and businesses. With the introduction of an email + messaging app called Memo (, bringing a refresh to email and providing users control of who and how others can engage them is just the beginning. Memo is not just another email client, but a service to provide a new holistic approach to email for consumers and businesses. Memo is in a closed, private beta for iOS with a public beta slated for Q3 2020.

Company Values


No brilliant jerks allowed. We encourage experimenting and learning from mistakes. We are never too good or too smart. We always strive to learn and get better.


We are not afraid of change or disruption. In fact, we are proactive about it and structure our organization to exchange ideas, drive innovation, and invent.


Passions are transmitted by people around us. We are passionate about our work, our influence, and our customers. Our organization and every member of our team is driven by purpose and a shared sense of mission.


Collaboration is crucial. Our default mode of operation is to be a giver. We take only when needed. You are never penalized for helping others even if you fall behind. Everyone is responsible if a team or individual needs help. We seek and embrace diversity. We are a team that goes beyond inclusion to fostering a sense of belonging for all of our members.


There are certain things based on science that we value. We value individuals that prioritize physical, mental, and emotional health. If you are doing everything in your power to be healthy, learn, and grow, you are a good fit.
