About Mixmax

Mixmax’s mission is to do the impossible with email. We believe everything you do today on the web should be possible in any email. This includes scheduling meetings, completing surveys, making purchases, playing games, and even interacting with apps.

We started Mixmax to take on the challenge of upgrading email to the 21st century. In the last decade, we saw the web mature at an incredible pace. Video-conferencing, “street view” on maps, and collaborative document editing are all examples of amazing advances that are standard on the web. And yet, email remains static, plain, and unproductive. Despite its ubiquity and longevity, email is stuck in 1999.

After building communications and authoring products at companies including Apple, Google, and Skype, our team saw a huge opportunity to build a world where email maximizes both your productivity and expressiveness.

Position

As a full-stack engineer, you’ll be working with us in all aspects of the product, from its core infrastructure to its custom front-end. This includes architecting systems to integrate with external services, building a full-featured web editor, and choreographing email systems and protocols. We’ll leave it largely up to you to evolve the stack as you see fit. We eagerly participate in open source development and will encourage you to do the same.

What you might work on:

  • Scale our backend service to send many millions of messages a day
  • Architect the next generation of the Mixmax API: supporting rich communications apps that work on a broad spectrum of clients
  • Maintain an elastic distributed infrastructure built on top of AWS
  • Build large scale data processing pipelines for indexing content
  • Continuously find opportunities to improve performance, and increase reliability & quality

Current stack: NodeJS, Go, React, Mongo, ElasticSearch, Redis, Electron, AWS.

Your qualification
  • Experience in Javascript (Node.js, front-end frameworks), ElasticSearch and Mongo
  • Significant experience building web applications that have shipped
  • You enjoy writing well-tested, well-organized code
What we offer

We’re a driven, passionate, responsible group who values personal and professional growth equally. We take care of ourselves, our families, our customers and one another. We believe in sustainable and diverse approaches to work and life, because optimizing for the long-term is the best path to success. As a team, we built multi-million dollar products with this balance in mind.

As a founding team member, you’ll wear multiple hats, embrace ambiguity, and take charge leading complex projects. You’ll have the support of an experienced team who’ve built multi-million dollar products and services. This is exceptionally challenging work, but will be the most meaningful and rewarding of your career.

Our office is in San Francisco near Caltrain. We offer competitive compensation and benefits.

Additional details

What are you looking for in a team member?

Your specialization is less important than your ability to learn fast and adapt to shifting technologies. We’re especially fond of people who:

  • Focus on project goals, not just writing code 
  • Iterate until customers love what you’ve built, and pay for it
  • Have a hacker mindset and master the fine art of balancing time, features, and quality of code. You know when to unit test and when to “just ship it”
  • Strive to grow personally and professionally, beyond just expanding technical abilities 
  • Love to experiment with new technology and share knowledge with the team
  • Represent the team and product at conferences
