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

  • We are now looking for a new Back-End developer to join our family of extraordinary people. People like our Senior Software Developer Matias, who has worked at RELEX already since 2010. Matias appreciates the professional but informal atmosphere, which he sees as the best thing about the company. There’s also a high degree of trust, but at the same time the hierarchy is very flat and there are no silos. Overall, he feels RELEX to be a very stimulating environment to be a part of.  You can read more about Matias’s career story here: relexsolutions.com/matias-kakela/


    Here at RELEX we work in small teams where everyone’s input is valued. People can move between teams based on required skill set and personal interest. You get as much freedom and responsibilities as you feel comfortable with. We believe in transparency and using common sense; you are free to choose the tools you need to reach our common goals. Here we are serious about what we do, but don’t take ourselves too seriously. We get excited when facing new challenges where we can put our skills to the test, but make sure to have fun doing it. Now -  if you accept the challenge - we give you the opportunity to experience all this and more.  


    What you’ll be doing:

    You would be a member of the RELEX core product development team, working on the parts of the software written in Java in a self-organizing agile team. You would work on implementing algorithms and data structures as well as profiling, optimizing and debugging existing ones. You would get to work closely with supply chain, user interface and other experts.


    What you’ll bring to the table:

    You have solid (few years) of hands-on experience in developing non-trivial Java software and genuine Interest in analyzing and optimizing software performance.  You are experienced with different database types (relational, document, columnar or OLAP) and possess solid knowledge in system performance optimization. You also have a good understanding of low-level computer architecture and its implications to software performance. Your experience with dynamic languages (eg. JavaScript, Ruby) is the icing on the cake.


    Tags: Java; databases; JavaScript; Ruby; Kotlin


    We offer the ability to choose your own tools (most of us are using MacBook Pros but editors vary). Smartphone and broadband connection benefits and lots of sporting options. And last but not least a brewing club!

    Every day, sub-optimal planning translates to mountains of food waste and excessive storage needs. Join us in combating this challenge. Apply today (we’ve made it fast and easy)!

    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.

    Stack

      • Type-annotated Python 3 (django, scikit-learn, pytorch)
      • Typescript (react)
      • Postgresql
      • AWS
