About the role

Quick Pitch

The typical software company has between 4 - 6 email-sending providers by the Series C stage. We’re rolling them up into one, clean platform to help software companies efficiently scale their communication with their users. If you want to join us on this mission, read on.

Our Team

We’re a small team (currently 6), focused on exceptional User Experience and a rock-solid, feature-rich product. We ship quickly and speak with new and existing users daily. Our emphasis is on retention and growth. If you’re a fan of companies like Notion, Figma, Raycast or Linear then you’ll appreciate our product development and engineering process.

The Role

As our first dedicated infrastructure engineer, you'll be instrumental in scaling our sending volume to more than 10 million emails per day. This role will begin as an IC role but will evolve into a leadership role as the team grows. Our CTO believes in prioritizing learning and mentorship within the team.
