Job description

Apply Apply
We're looking for a remote Senior Backend Developer (Ruby on Rails) to join our team to help grow our start-up SmartrMail and improve email marketing for commerce. Come join us building the highest rated marketing app on Shopify!

About SmartrMail 📧


The standard in email marketing sucks, especially for commerce. As a merchant, you're either stuck with a basic platform that sends bulk newsletters your customers hate, or you can upgrade to an enterprise tool which you pay too much for and will never have time to properly configure.

SmartrMail is the easiest way for merchants to send best practice emails and automations, so they can grow their business. Within minutes merchants have a template that matches their site, automations tailored to their customers journeys, and recommendations with products based on customer data. This saves merchants' valuable time, delights their customers, and gets them sales.

We have 300+ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ reviews and a 4.9/5 rating on Shopify, the highest of all email marketing apps.


We're a small, friendly team of 16, spread across Australia and Europe but growing fast. We care deeply about technology, a great user experience, and making life better for ecommerce merchants.

We're a remote first team, but if you're in Australia (Melbourne/Adelaide) or Lithuania (Vilnius/Kaunas) you can work flexibly out of one of our offices.
