At Superhuman, we are driven to do good. We are passionate about productivity. We are serious about increasing wealth creation and positively impacting the economy.

Email is a huge point of leverage: there are 1 billion professionals in the world, and on average we spend 3 hours a day reading and writing email. This is more than almost any other aspect of our work.

That’s why we're rebuilding the email experience. We are 10x better than Gmail. 10x better than Outlook. So fast, delightful, and intelligent — you'll feel like you have superpowers.

At Superhuman, you'll shape the future of email, communication, and productivity.

Let’s show the world how it should be.

Engineering at Superhuman

Engineering team and processes

We have 5-person Desktop and Mobile Engineering Teams, a 3-person Backend Team, and an amazing QA Engineer. The engineering team is very close-knit and has the opportunity to work across our different stacks. with the following recurring meetings during a sprint: • Sprint planning (every two weeks) • Weekly planning (every week) • 1:1s with managers (every week)

Technical Challenges

We have a lot of performance work and challenges here. We're engineering things to work at 50ms, which requires getting down into systems level and understanding how things work under the hood.

We care a lot about user experience. One of our core values is to Create Delight: if it's better for users, its not over-engineered. As an example, our CTO reverse engineered the Google Chrome layout engine, to build our own framework so we could have a custom font which snapped to grid and had perfect vertical rhythm.
