Mail Delivery Engineer

Job description

ProtonMail was started by scientists and engineers from CERN in 2013 to make end-to-end encrypted email as easy to use as Gmail.

We are rapidly scaling our talented teams to improve our core email product as well as to build an entire suite of web services that safeguards privacy in the digital age.


While the open nature of email is great for interoperability, accessibility and freedom from centralized control, it also creates challenging email delivery problems.

What you will do:

  • Improve our mail delivery pipeline (MTA, milters, custom anti-spam systems)
  • Improve and monitor delivery statistics
  • Protect users against various attacks such as phishing, list bombing, and spoofing
  • Automate, deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot critical mail systems
