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!


  • GENERAL

  • Marketing Mad Scientist

    Boomerang is looking to bring on a mad scientist who wants to explore distribution channels, come up will brilliant ways to find new customers, turn those ideas into reality, then measure and track the results.

    Driving growth is the hottest skill set in Silicon Valley right now, and we've already got working products that turn visitors into users and users into evangelists and paying customers. We're looking for someone who wants to build distribution skills, armed with a marketing budget, a responsive and technically-savvy team, and products that users love.

    If you're a branding guru, already know we could make 5x as much money if we just changed our pricing, or are eager to tell our engineering team what to build the day you walk in the door, we'd like to introduce you to our competitors (they're hiring!) If you're thinking about how to get a million new installs through duct tape, great stories, hard work, and a few bucks here and there, we want to meet you ourselves! In other words, we're looking for someone who wants to go out and do stuff even more than thinking up stuff to do.

    Coding skills not required, but you should know your way around Excel.

    Responsibilities will include:
    • * Conceptualizing, Implementing, Executing, and Measuring marketing campaigns.
    • * Building relationships with companies, outlets, and people who have audiences that are compatible with our products' user bases.
    • * Managing paid marketing channels and tracking the results.
    Requirements:
    • * A work ethic made of steel, steam, and fire. Plus explosives.
    • * Enough "mathiness" to be able to track and measure the results of your efforts.
    • * Incredible ability to shrug off failure, get back on your feet, and try again.
    • * The ability to handle rejection when doing outreach, link building, etc.
    • * Good judgement and a solid moral compass.
    • * An interest in productivity software in general, and email productivity in specific.
    • *Curiosity and appreciation for technology.
    Advantages:
    • * If you can create HTML, that's a plus. If not, we can teach you.
    • * Some kind of skill/talent that translates to viral things. Writing, video-creation, comic books, anything goes. Persistence and hard work are more important, but viral traffic is free traffic.

    While a resume and a good cover letter to i.want.to.work@baydin.com is all we can really ask, the job description calls for something with a bit more panache. Surprise us!

  • Customer Happiness Liaison

    Boomerang is looking to add an awesome new team member to its Customer Happiness Team. Working side-by-side with Alison, our current awesome Customer Happiness team member, you will communicate with customers, answering their questions and improving their experience with our products.

    You will provide technical and billing support, collect and report on feature requests and improvement ideas, and provide input and assistance to the development team as we improve products.

    Organized to a fault (borderline OCD is probably a plus), you should be obsessed with keeping the ship running smoothly, have a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and take satisfaction in getting the details right. Writing clearly and effectively - and enjoying doing it - is a must.

    Ideally, you'll have always dreamed about working at a company that's changing the email experience for hundreds of thousands of people every day. That's probably too much to ask, but you should at least like the idea, and you need to have tried our products out.

    Responsibilities will include:
    • * Providing first-line email customer service. You will help customers with billing questions, account migrations, cancellations (hopefully not many), and setting up group subscriptions. You will respond to customer feedback and general questions.
    • * Providing first-line email technical support. You will assist customers who are having trouble with Boomerang, Boomerang Calendar, Inbox Pause, and The Email Game, enter common issues into our bug tracking system, and work with the development team to minimize these requests.
    • * Working with the engineering team to improve the quality of the products. Specifically, you'll help with creating test coverage plans and testing new builds.
    • * Actively improving support documentation and working with the development team to make the product itself solve as many support requests as possible
    Requirements:
    • * Awesome listening skills
    • * Fantastic writing skills, with an emphasis on clarity
    • * Empathy and patience
    • * Borderline maniacal organization skills - nothing should ever slip through the cracks
    • * Excitement about working at a startup
    • * Excitement about the email space and about our products
    • * Ability to commute to our office in Mountain View, CA
    Advantages:
    • * College graduate
    • * This position does not require a computer-related degree, but some technical experience is a plus. It's good if you're the designated person in your family who helps mom and dad when their printer doesn't work. It's also a positive if you've fired up the Chrome developer tools before.

    This is a full time position based in our office in Mountain View. Please email your resume, a writing sample, and what you like about our products to i.want.to.work@baydin.com


  • INTERNSHIPS

  • Visual Marketing Memeternship

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

    Visual storytelling has been a fixture of human communication since an artistic band of Neanderthals painted the first cave walls. With a screen in every pocket, understanding how to communicate effectively with images is more important today than ever before. We'd like to enlist your skills to help us tell stories about how to work more productively in sharable, spreadable, engaging, bite-size visual formats.

    Because this position requires so much creativity, we will consider a wide variety of possible visual formats - please consider applying with whatever suits your personal creative talents. We're open to just about anything, as long as the format is primarily images and provides enough depth to teach audiences something meaningful about productivity. Whether you'd like to spread memes, draw a beautiful webcomic series by hand, take breathtaking photographs to make inspirational images, or something we've never even thought about, we're open to it.

    This is the perfect internship if you'd like to spend your summer creating fun, quirky productivity-focused educational images and building a community around them.

    Responsibilities:
    • * Creating visual content (without much of a budget) on a daily basis. We'll need quality, but we'll also need a lot of quantity!
    • * Building a community on visually-focused platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest. You'll be posting original content and finding engaging content to share, building followers, engaging in conversations, and cultivating shares and retweets.
    Requirements:
    • * First and foremost, you want a role where you get to create content on a daily basis.
    • * You are a stellar storyteller and an imaginative image-maker. Whether as an illustrator, a photographer, or via some other medium, you are skilled at creating original images that are both compelling and fun.
    • * You love productivity and maybe cute animals, and are excited for an opportunity that brings your passions together in a unique, fun, and challenging internship experience.
    • * You're a great collaborator, but also a self-starter who is comfortable with a role that requires internal motivation and drive.
    • * You have a quick wit and love taking an idea from inception to completion, creating a polished product that is just as good (if not better) than the original idea.
    • * You have an appreciation and understanding of Reddit, viral sensations, and what the Internet loves. You are well-versed in the world of webcomics and/or memes, either as a consumer or (preferably) a purveyor. You are social media savvy & hashtag happy.
    • * If the internship goes well, it would be great to continue working with you part-time afterward. It's a plus if you're open to that too!

    To apply, send us an email at i.want.to.work@baydin.com. Send us your resume, a note explaining why you're interested in Boomerang specifically, and some examples of content you've made and/or communities you've built to show you are the perfect candidate!
