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

Current Openings

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 October, we took the whole company to Barcelona to step back and get a fresh perspective.

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 coffee tab, 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!

  • 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.

  • Senior Software Engineer, Full Stack - Remote

    Email and personal productivity software are a never ending stream of exciting, customer-life-changing challenges. We're looking for veteran engineers who want to use knowledge gleaned from years of working in software development teams to help us overcome them!

    We have apps that millions of customers use every day (and pay for), and the infrastructure to support them efficiently and reliably at a reasonable cost. Our technology choices prioritize solving real user problems - when possible, we try to minimize complicated architecture and dependencies, but when it was necessary we built a proprietary hybrid machine learning architecture.

    We need your judgment and experience to help us shave months of development time off critical projects, help us keep the servers alive a few extra nights a year, and share that judgment and experience across our engineering team.

    The right candidate is already able to work at an expert level in one of the languages or frameworks we use at Boomerang. You'll be able to share stories of mistakes you've made and learned from in past work, and you'll be able to identify the same mistakes as they are being made here. You already know how to interface with a product team, support team, marketing team, and leadership team to make everything run more smoothly.

    You can differentiate between when new platforms, frameworks, and design patterns solve real problems and when they're just shiny objects, and even more importantly, know how to communicate that knowledge to everyone who needs to know it. You're comfortable expressing your thoughts clearly in writing. You're collaborative and enjoy teaching people what you know, but also are receptive and open when someone else is in a position to teach you.

    In return, you'll work in an environment that welcomes responsibility, where your work will help millions of people focus on the most rewarding parts of their jobs, and as part of a friendly, fun, elite team.

    Requirements:
    • * BA/BS Degree in Computer Science or related major, 5+ years of industry experience in a software development environment
    • * Deep knowledge of at least one of the following technologies (the more the better!):
      • * HTML/CSS/JS, with jQuery
      • * Solving CSS/JS multi-browser compatibility problems
      • * Front-end performance optimization
      • * Python + Django
    • * Understanding of back-end technologies and databases is a plus
    • * An interest in productivity software
