From our CTO + Co-Founder, Christine Spang:
"We have a number of folks on the team who started as an individual contributor and became staff level or leaders in their area. I personally love seeing people reach their full potential and become successful at Nylas."

About the team:

Our team helps build and expand the Nylas Cloud APIs, which allow our customers and developers to make effortless use of email, calendar, and contact data.

  • Experience creating and developing on RESTful APIs
  • Experience iterating with git / modern version control
  • Experience leading technical projects from start to finish
  • Bonus: Experience contributing to, and managing contributions for open-source projects
  • Bonus: Experience working with mobile languages and frameworks like Swift, Objective-C, Dart, or Kotlin (to name a few)
