This is full-time role for a remote, US-based employee.
We're a venture-backed startup building the future of digital communications on top of the world's most ubiquitous messaging platform — email. We believe that email should prioritize people (not advertising), getting through your inbox shouldn't require busywork, and sending an email should be as fast as typing a text message. Our first product, a brand new inbox experience for Gmail, launched in February 2022. The Verge called it "The Google Inbox successor I've been waiting for".
We have an experienced team distributed across the US, with almost half of our team located in California. Our CEO Andrew formerly cofounded Firebase (later acquired by Google), and our early team met Andrew while working there building the infrastructure behind millions of today's mobile and web apps.
We're well-funded by top-tier investors including Union Square Ventures & Lightspeed Venture Partners.
