Role Description

About the team

To address the unique needs of our customers, we’re building a Custom Engineering team! They work with existing and potential customers to build and expand custom features to the Nylas Cloud APIs, which allow our customers and developers to make effortless use of email, calendar, and contact data. We want to create tools and features that make it easier for developers to use our platform in building their applications and increase our product offerings into new territory. Our work will make a significant impact on cutting down onboarding time, adding new functionality to the product roadmap, driving up product adoption statistics, building a paywall for contractual commitments, and productizing customer-specific feature sets.

About the role

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will take a leadership role within the team. You will help mentor, guide and support the other software engineers within the custom engineering team. Reporting to the Sr. Director of Custom Engineering, you'll help us scale and build new products on top of our APIs. Right now, our open-source Python sync engine regularly archives terabytes of data across a massive SQL cluster, and our Flask APIs handle tens of millions of requests a day. We aim to scale that several times over in the next year.

Our engineers end-to-end own and ship new features, like offering Contact sync, while providing mentorship through pairing. They shard our webhook systems, then re-architect in SQS as we scale. They solve tricky customer issues, debug slow MySQL queries, and sometimes get into the depths of MIME and other email protocols. On the side, they improve our internal developer experience, most recently with MyPy, and open-source our custom-built tools. They talk at conferences, write blog posts, and make strong showings at local events.

You should have a growth mindset, enough engineering experience to architect complex systems, a track record of managing your own projects, and a strong sense of practical shippability over-engineering purity. You should also tend toward humbleness in your abilities and have an innate desire to pass the knowledge onto others.

About Nylas
