QuickMail is one of the leading cold email outreach solutions for sending business-to-business cold emails.

It is used by small and medium businesses all over the world to reach out to potential clients and grow their businesses.

Our clients are composed of Entrepreneurs, Founders, Growth Marketers & Agencies (small & medium businesses).

QuickMail was started in 2014. We more than doubled the business in 2022 and we have the same ambitious goal for 2023.

We are 100% self-funded and composed of a small group of highly driven co-workers.

Our current stack

  • Communication layer: GraphQL, Apollo & Pusher
  • Hosting: Heroku with Postgres & Redis

Your initial responsibilities


  • In the first weeks, to familiarize you with our code, you'll be making some small changes to the code to either fix problems or extend existing solutions.
  • You'll then move toward building smaller scope features & advancing on longer-term projects.
  • Ultimately, you will have the possibility to make a big impact on the product by driving initiatives to support the business (e.g. build an integration, create a new feature, extend the API...)

The role will evolve into more complex responsibilities based on your ability to write good, clean, and maintainable code as well as communicate & interact with the team.

We promote internally so this leaves a lot of opportunities to grow in more senior roles as your career advance with us.
