We're looking for a Front-end Developer to join our team to help grow our start-up SmartrMail.

About SmartrMail ⚡️

The standard in email marketing sucks, especially for commerce. As a merchant, you're either stuck with a basic platform that sends bulk newsletters your customers hate, or you can upgrade to an enterprise tool which you pay too much for and will never have time to properly configure.

At SmartMail, we make the next step in email marketing for small-to-medium merchants easier than the first. Like our merchants we're a small team with big goals. We understand what it's like to have limited time and resources, and build an easy-to-use email marketing app that saves our merchants' time and delights their customers with better personalized email that gets more sales.

We're a small team of 16, spread across Australia, Europe and South Africa, but growing fast. We care deeply about technology, a great user experience, and making life better for ecommerce merchants. We're rated 4.8/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ on the Shopify App Store and Capterra.
