We've already been doing this more than five years, so we've realized it's a marathon, not a sprint.

Current Openings

Check out our recent adventures.

We work hard, but we do it for a sane number of hours every week. We use our own products obsessively, which means we both understand them in our bones and can get even more done. We provide paid vacation and take federal holidays off to recharge. Everyone does customer support. In September, we took the whole company to Hawaii to step back, get a fresh perspective, and eat our weight in poke.

Our office is in downtown Mountain View, where the weather is always beautiful. Our neighbors are fellow startups, coffee houses (we pick up the tab) and dozens of restaurants with much better food than you can get from a catering company. We're also right next to Caltrain, so driving is 100% optional.

We like jigsaw puzzles, food, Bananagrams, cooperative games, coming up with game show ideas, ridiculous holiday parties, our french press, espresso machine, and Blue Bottle subscription, company-provided laptops and giant monitors, birthday surprises, stuffed animals, and... food! We eat together as a team almost every day.

In addition to having millions of users, we're also profitable. So we get to do things like giving back a portion of our profits to support education in Burma.

What gets us out of bed in the morning is productivity.

So if Lifehacker is your first stop on the Internet in the morning, you have strong opinions (either way) about Inbox Zero, you once wrote an ode to the Pomodoro method, or you've convinced all your friends to use [insert to-do list software or calendar software] or better yet, convinced them all to use Boomerang, we'd love to meet you!

BENEFITS


Just like most tech companies, we offer competitive salaries, paid vacation, and a fun office environment. We also help you take care of your teeth and plan for the days when you'll be toothless!

  • Full medical and dental insurance
  • IRA with company contribution
  • Annual conference budget
  • Relocation assistance

If what you've seen so far sounds fun, here are the positions we're looking for. All positions are full time and based in our office in Mountain View.

    ENGINEERING POSITIONS

  • iOS Engineers

    Boomerang has a thriving presence on Android, but none on iOS. We'd love for you to help us change that! You'll have the opportunity and responsibility to build an amazing experience from the ground up, with an already battle-tested server infrastructure and APIs along with a lot of institutional knowledge about what works well on mobile email.

    Building our mobile experience on iOS will provide opportunities to get experience with a ton of different aspects of iOS development - from building gestures to facilitate easy email triage to optimizing layouts to make the app feel snappy and quick to exploring location and geofencing APIs!

    Requirements:

    • * A computer science or engineering degree from an accredited university with some experience building iOS apps
    • * OR at least 3 years of experience professionally developing iOS apps with very strong knowledge of computer science fundamentals
    • * An interest in productivity software

    Please send your resume, a link to your Github (if available), and a cover letter that includes a paragraph of your thoughts on Boomerang's mobile app (currently available only on Android) to i.want.to.work@baydin.com to apply!

  • Python Backend Engineers

    Email is a never ending stream of exciting, challenging, customer-impacting software problems. We could use your help to solve them!

    We have an existing infrastructure that's been through the wars for the last four years, but we're looking to make it much more powerful, make it fully cross-platform, and to make the user experience screaming fast. You'll work with both our web team and our mobile teams to provide the infrastructure to make Boomerang even more powerful.

    In addition to interesting scaling problems (we already have millions of users), and instilling a love/hate relationship with IMAP libraries, we'll be doing some experiments with deep learning over the next couple of years. There will be plenty of research and data projects to work on. It should be a blast!

    Requirements:

    • * A computer science or engineering degree from an accredited university with at least one year of professional Python development
    • * OR at least 3 years of experience developing professionally in Python with very strong knowledge of computer science fundamentals
    • * An interest in productivity software

    Please send your resume, a link to your Github (if available), and a cover letter that includes a paragraph of your thoughts on at least one of our products to i.want.to.work@baydin.com to apply!

  • Android Engineer

    Boomerang already provides the best email experience available on Android. Now that we've built a mail client that is functional and powerful enough for our customers to use every day, we get to start building the fun stuff - new ways of interacting with our email, features that help new users discover the value of the product, and features that make email so much smarter.

    You'll be working with our engineering team to create these new experiences and work on some speculative apps to test out new experiences as well! You'll get experience with all kinds of APIs, from basic networking and layouts to location and geofencing to profiling and performance tuning. And you'll get to do it on an app that's used daily by hundreds of thousands (and soon millions) of users!

    Requirements:

    • * A computer science or engineering degree from an accredited university with some experience building Android apps
    • * OR at least 3 years of experience professionally developing Android apps with very strong knowledge of computer science fundamentals
    • * An interest in productivity software

    Please send your resume, a link to your Github (if available), and a cover letter that includes a paragraph of your thoughts on Boomerang's Android app to i.want.to.work@baydin.com to apply!

  • Web Frontend Engineers

    Mobile is changing the way we use email, but the desktop experience remains the most productive way to handle the majority of our messages. We're going to be building a lot of exciting things over the next few years in this space, and we need talented web developers to help us get things done!

    From working on our browser plugins (Boomerang is the most-installed Gmail improvement) to reverse-engineering Gmail to figure out crazy new ideas to helping implement best practices and the latest HTML5 tech in our Email Game, you'll never be bored.

    Requirements:

    • * A computer science or engineering degree from an accredited university with at least one year of professional development experience in Javascript
    • * OR at least 3 years of experience professionally developing in Javascript with very strong knowledge of computer science fundamentals
    • * An interest in productivity software

    Please send your resume, a link to your Github (if available), and a cover letter that includes a paragraph of your thoughts on at least one of our products to i.want.to.work@baydin.com to apply!


  • INTERNSHIPS

  • Rapid Prototyper Intern

    All positions are full time and based in our office in Mountain View. Juniors and seniors only.

    Boomerang is looking for a summer intern developer to help us prototype new ideas around our burgeoning email extension empire. Over the summer, we'll be experimenting with new platforms and new features across several of our products, and you'll be the person responsible for trying to build our craziest ideas.

    You will need to be a jack-of-all-trades developer who enjoys learning new technologies very quickly. The ideal candidate will be excited about email productivity and ready to come in guns-blazing to start building new stuff. We've got some ideas about what prototypes to build, but you'll have input into that as well.

    Our plugins/apps are written in JavaScript/HTML5/JQuery/Angular2/Java/Swift with a Python backend, so experience with those is a plus, but experience with other languages (Ruby, C++, etc) will do just fine.

    To apply, send us an email at i.want.to.work@baydin.com. A resume and cover letter is all that's needed to apply, and if you have a school project, a github account, a website, or anything you're proud of, feel free to send us a link.

  • Software Developer in Test Intern

    All positions are full time and based in our office in Mountain View. Juniors and seniors only.

    Boomerang is looking for a summer intern developer to automate our largely-manual QA process, set up and evaluate versioning/build/test infrastructure, and squash a few bugs.

    Our email enhancements integrate with existing mail clients, including Outlook and Gmail, and depend on the 3rd-party functionality built into those mail clients. Since we can't test those at the source code level, functional testing is a crucial part of our testing strategy. It's almost as miserable as a root canal (and as error prone as a dentist with the shakes). We'd like to use Sikuli, an MIT project based on Python, as well as the best-of-breed Python deployment tools like Fabric.

    We're not looking for a QA person to sit there and click stuff and fill in forms about whether or not it worked. We're looking for a lion of a developer with a perfectionist streak who likes finding bugs, fixing them, and wants to figure out great solutions that save lots of time. You'll be deeply embedded into an early stage startup, so you'll be spending time helping us figure out how to grow the business and doing the other stuff that comes with being part of a startup as well.

    To apply, send us an email at i.want.to.work@baydin.com . A resume and cover letter is all that's needed to apply, and if you have a school project, a github account, a website, or anything you're proud of, feel free to send us a link.
