We’re looking for talented developers who want to be part of a young company in an exciting time of growth, and to help make EmailOctopus the preferred email platform for millions of users worldwide.

About EmailOctopus

Set up by two brothers in London in 2014, we’re a bootstrapped (and profitable!) startup with big ambitions to disrupt the email marketing industry. To date, our customers have sent over 3.5 billion emails and saved in excess of $100,000. Over the next few years, we’re looking to improve our platform, expand our feature set and significantly grow our customer base.

We’re a friendly, personal team and we pride ourselves on delivering outstanding service to our users just as much as we do in building an amazing product. We’re a fully remote business, with the team spread across London, Manchester and Vancouver.

The role

As a developer at EmailOctopus, you’ll be helping maintain our existing platform as well as supporting our biggest project yet: switching from AWS-supported platform to a fully independent email service provider. Your skills will help us ensure that our platform is robust, tested and set up to succeed at scale, so we can keep reliably delivering billions of emails on behalf of our users.

* Strong experience in PHP and its web frameworks, such as Symfony/Laravel

* Familiar with AWS and sysadmin

* Experience in Redis/MySQL/BigQuery

* Experience with Python

* Comfortable with version control

* Interested in developing highly scalable and robust web applications

* Flexible working hours

* £500 yearly learning budget

    Our mission is to help people find work that matters. We believe that the world is better when people understand the opportunities available to them. Our human-assisted AI platform delivers great results to our customers (customer quote: "I'd have a panic attack if you guys stopped existing").

    Because of this, we raised $3.5M from OpenAI researchers and Lightspeed Venture Partners at one of the highest ever valuations coming out of YC. Our team has previously sold companies, published machine learning research, has Dropbox's former Chief of Staff, and hails from MIT, Google, Airbnb, McKinsey, etc.

    Help us create a world where all 7 billion people work at jobs that they love, do things that they’re great at, and work for companies that are solving meaningful problems.


    Responsibilities

      • Create product features that solve customer problems and make interacting with Sourceress a delightful experience.
      • Own projects from conception and design through testing and deployment.
      • Collaborate with product, design, and users to understand the requirements and determine what we should build.
      • Minimize the complexity of the software that you create and maintain.
      • Continually improve your own software engineering skills (whether via side projects, classes, or whatever else works for you)

    Sample projects

      • Create tools and interfaces for customers to integrate our service more tightly with their own recruiting workflow (whether that's in their browser, their inbox, or via our own interface that let's them quickly find and add candidates to their process).
      • Ensure that candidates have a great experience at each customer -- integrating into the application tracking system to ensure that no candidates are dropped, flagging high priority candidates for the customer that need action right now, and allowing customers to see metrics about their recruiting funnel so they can improve the experience themselves.
      • Give customers visibility into, and control over, the entire product and recruiting process -- it currently operates mostly as a black box, and exposing the options already present in the system will make customers feel more in control and even happier about the product experience.

    Requirements

      • 3+ years of back end software engineering experience.
      • Strong software engineering skills.
      • Understand both the value of shipping quickly and of software craftsmanship, and have the judgment to know when to apply each.
      • Highly focused and productive.
      • Empathetic, thoughtful, and impact-oriented.
      • Enjoy designing, building, and shipping projects independently.
