Company 🚀

QuickMail is one of the leading cold email outreach solutions for sending business-to-business cold emails.

Started in 2014, it is used by small and medium businesses all over the world to reach out to potential clients and grow their businesses.

Our clients are composed of Entrepreneurs, Founders, Growth Marketers & Agencies (small & medium businesses).

We are 100% self-funded and composed of a small group of highly driven co-workers.

Our current stack

  • Backend: Ruby on Rails 7, Sidekiq 7 entreprise & Webpack 5
  • Frontend: Angular 13 with Rxjs, Pug & Bootstrap 4
  • Communication layer: GraphQL, Apollo & Pusher
  • Hosting: Heroku with Postgres & Redis
  • Extra services: AWS for EC2 & Routes

Your initial responsibilities

  • In the first weeks, to familiarize you with our code, you'll be making some small changes to the code to either fix problems or extend existing solutions.
  • You'll then move toward building smaller scope features & advancing on longer-term projects.
  • Ultimately, you will have the possibility to make bigger impact on the product by driving initiatives to support the business (e.g. build an integration, create a new feature, extend the API...)

The role will evolve into more complex responsibilities based on your ability to write good, clean, and maintainable code as well as communicate & interact with the team.

We promote internally so this leaves a lot of opportunities to grow in more senior roles as your career advances with us.

  • You deeply ❤️ coding, you are pragmatic in your approach to development, have a positive attitude, and have the ability to make decisions on your own.
  • You must be resourceful and proactive.
  • You have good analytical skills with a demonstrable ability to simplify complex things.
  • You can speak and write in English without problems.
  • You have at least 3 years of professional experience with Ruby on Rails and have a good understanding of background jobs.
  • You use Git regularly (pull request, merge, rebase…)

  • 💻 Stunning colleagues,  and solid engineering practices, we use branching and pull requests, review apps, apply scrum with weekly sprints, daily standups, velocity & retrospectives. The code is well structured and the architecture is sound.
  • ⚖️ You'll join a meritocracy, no-bs culture, no politics, only candid feedback to keep improving. Think Netflix culture.
  • 🔥 A chance to step in and have a big impact on a growing SaaS company. You'll learn about the business side too and get to know the financials as we practice open-book management 📖.
  • 🌴 1 team retreat per year for work and fun: https://youtu.be/OY5l3ueZMUo
  • 📚 We focus on learning and personal growth ($100/mo budget for learning/books/courses).

Q - Are there set hours I need to be working during the day?
A - Yes, you need to have a minimum of 5 hours overlap with the core work hours in Europe (10am-6pm CET). We have an American member, but she wakes up early.

Q - What type of culture do you guys have?
A - We are incredibly fast-paced, aim for excellence, and take pride in our work. We welcome anyone who wants to achieve big things. Small team, big ambition. If you want something to accelerate your growth instead of a mind-numbing job, this is it.

Q - Are you looking for investors or selling the company?
A - Absolutely not.
