MailerSend is a cloud-based transactional email service built for developers, but designed so that entire team, including designers, project managers and marketing people can use it.

We are looking for a seasoned Laravel developer to join our lean mean machine of a team and help us improve & scale our product.

Why MailerSend?

Wondering why we think you’ll love working with MailerSend? Here are 6 reasons!

  1. You won’t be bored
    We are building a world-class email (and in the future, other channels) cloud communications platform and already have 3k+ active clients and send 15m+ emails per month. And we’re just beginning.

  2. You'll be challenged with interesting tasks
    As we grow, we are facing various challenges that require involvement from the whole team, and from you, as a developer - sharp mind, fast decision making and great technical skill set. So you bet, challenges are always ahead.

  3. You'll take ownership
    We don’t micromanage and try not to interrupt your work with random tasks. We do expect you to take full responsibility and ownership for the stuff you build.

  4. You’ll always have a helping hand
    Our immediate team is small, but being a part of MailerLite has its perks - we have access to world-class QA, SRE (Ops), DRE, Design and Marketing teams that help immensely in daily tasks. You will always have someone to talk to, share your ideas, and help out in any problem that comes up.

  5. You can pick where you want to work, every day
    We’ve been working remotely for the past 8 years. Every day you get to choose which environment makes you the most productive.
