Senior Software Developer – Analytics Team

Job description

Mailgun is hiring a senior software developer to join our analytics team.  The team's mission is to empower customers to gather actionable insights so every message they send can perform better than the last.  As part of this team, you will be responsible for writing and maintaining software that collects and analyzes metrics from the sending pipeline and customer activity.

Mailgun is a high-growth, developer-focused email sending platform designed to attach to customers' applications to provide high-volume email automation. It was a Y-Combinator company acquired by Rackspace in August 2012. In February 2017, Mailgun spun back out as its own business focused on profitable growth. The platform serves customers like Slack, Github, and Uservoice, all of which rely on Mailgun to deliver services for their core business needs.
