  • You have built an SDK or package from scratch or have extended an SDK/package from one language to another
  • 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)
  • Bonus: Experience with modern database and storage (MySQL, NoSQL, etc)

Perks and Benefits:

  • Nylas Alumni Fund: after 3 years employment, Nylas will invest $20k into your seed round if you decide to start your own company
  • Unlimited Paid Time Off (PTO): we take this very seriously as we care about the well-being of our employees
  • Healthcare: 90% premium coverage for medical, dental and vision for you and your family
  • One Medical onsite and tele-health membership for you and dependents
  • Additional: Health and DC FSA, Life insurance, with options for STD, LTD
  • Retirement Plan: match up to 3% of annual salary for 401k or RRSP contributions
