We’re Hiring a PHP/JavaScript Engineer

We’re looking for an engineer to join our team of 13 talented folks working on MailPoet, a newsletter solution for WordPress used by over 300,000 websites.

Who We Are

We’re a 8-year old, completely bootstrapped and profitable, 13 person company. Our freemium WordPress newsletter plugin is used by over 300,000 websites, of which thousands are customers.

Our product-centric team consists of 8 developers, 1 QA, 2 support staff & 2 product managers. We’re spread over 9 countries.

We strive to make our workplace gender inclusive. 

You’ll have access to all our key metrics, including revenues. Transparency is in our gene.

You are free to contact any team member to get an objective impression of the team and project. Our emails are composed of first name and domain name. See our team page.

Where We’re Heading and How

We launched a complete rewrite of our solution in 2017 with our own sending service. We own the entire chain which is fun and challenging.

Business wise, we’re growing 20% over the last fiscal year.

The team works asynchronously, primarily exchanging on Slack and having a single weekly conference call. Otherwise, we bank on 1-on-1s.

We report thanks to weekly status update. For the most part we work autonomously and are trusted to get the work done.

We primarily use PHP, MySQL, Idiorm and React.js to build MailPoet. Changes are shared through Jira & GitHub (our repo) and are always reviewed by other team members. A continuous integration service helps us automatically run tests and other safety checks. We tackle our tech debt.

Skills and Requirements

  • Good object oriented design skills;
  • Ability to write clean and understandable code;
