Headquarters: Switzerland baby
2.5 years ago, I started QuickMail.io, an internet application that allows users to send automated emails as well as follow-ups if no reply is detected (super useful to help start-up and sales teams).Today, the product is too big for me to be the only one working on it anymore and I need someone able to satisfy more users looking for cool stuffs.
We are just a couple of dudes (1 support person and myself) working incredibly hard to satisfy our user base and we really could do with some skilled help.
You'll be employee number #3 and the first developer hire.If you love programming (it has to be your passion) and want to join a hard working small start-up that has zero bullshit in it, no investors to please and is focused 200% on having the user have the best experience possible, please consider applying.
Some of the challenges I face:- Our users love QuickMail.io (I just found out that our Net Promoter Score is above 8) but many find it confusing at start (something I plan on addressing this year with your help).
This will require a few UX changes and may be a perfect place to get your marks.- So many cool improvements suggested but I don't have the bandwidth to do some that are aligned with the product direction.
The magic word expected in the application form will be gem.- Improve code coverage and refactoring for bigger items (I had a period of high growth and could benefit from more refactoring in some parts of the code base).- We are using Ruby on Rails 3 & AngularJS 1.3.15, I had no time to evaluate the impact of a possible migration to the latest version yet.You'll get the chance to work closely with me as a founder, and I do happen to have 18 years experience developing programs.
I was Scrum master and lead a few small technical teams so you'll be in good hands (we are a tech company first and foremost).These are 3 core values: https://quickmail.io/values/Main role and initial responsibilities?Improve code coverageImplement UX changesBrainstorm and help designing big itemsPossible RoR migrationYour opinion on how to improve the process is not only valued but expected.What I'm looking forA passionate programmerExcellent understanding of Ruby on Rails (2 years work experience)Some experience with AngularJSDatabase understanding (scalability and optimization...)A person of action, self directed & self motivatedHave a webcam & stable internet.I'm looking for someone responsible and reliable who enjoys solving technical puzzles in a self driven manner and can move things forward.PositionIt's a full-time remote position.
