Senior back-end developer or dev/ops engineer
StartMail is a trusted and reliable, encrypted private email provider. Our technology protects people's data and email activity with state-of-the-art security and technology.
Underneath the new webmail client that we have been building is a large back-end system with Terabytes of email data. We need help managing and expanding that in order to deliver new functionality to the webmail as well to make it as efficient and scalable as we can.
What will you be doing?
We need a strong Python application programmer to work on the API for the webmail client as well as the back-end services that are mostly written in Python. There are many aspects to running a private / encrypted email service and you'll be working on most of them such as:

- GPG integrations
- account administration systems / APIs / tools
- measures against spam and other abuse
- interfacing with Postfix and Dovecot for sending and fetching email
- ZFS/NFS/LUKS-based email storage system with remote replication etc
Since we run all this on our own hardware we want you to also help us automate the operations side. We are moving from virtual machines to containers at the moment.
