The Impact You'll Have at RP

Are you a PHP guru who loves building great web applications? Can you write SQL with one hand tied behind your back, and code JavaScript, HTML and CSS in your sleep? Do you have a passion for problem solving, and enjoy working closely with a team of dedicated people? If so, you may be the right fit as a Web Developer on our Web Platform team at Return Path. The Web Platform team is working to build a best in class web presence for Return Path. Our business is growing and our development team has a lot of new and interesting problems to solve.

As a Web Developer at Return Path you will be building the next generation of web-based tools to solve the most pressing challenges in the email industry. You will also be improving the features and functionality of our existing product set. As a member of our web platform product development team, you'll work closely with other Engineers and members of our Operations, Product Management, and User Experience teams.

What we're Looking For:

Mid or Senior level professional software development experience, primarily focused on PHP
Advanced knowledge in web technologies including JavaScript, CSS and HTML
Strong SQL skills
A passion for usability and building awesome interfaces
Knowledge of email technology a plus, e.g. SMTP, DKIM, MIME
An ideal candidate will have experience with some or all of the following technologies: HTML5, Bootstrap, jQuery, LESS CSS, Git
You're comfortable owning a project, wearing many hats to get the job done
You'd rather spend your time solving problems than architecting systems
You are interested in working in an agile environment

The Return Path Experience

Don't get us wrong, it's not easy to land a gig at RP and really have to want it. You're going to have to learn the ins and outs of our business before you even get here. Here's the good news: only the best and brightest minds in email work here. So, once you're in, this is a place where you'll be challenged, inspired, rewarded and transformed. Really you ask? Yes, really. The Return Path experience is a two-way exchange. We ask you to give us your very best every day. We expect a lot from you. We challenge you with interesting work, stretch assignments, a collaborative work environment and a ton of learning and growth. The pace is fast and furious. In exchange, we give you everything you need to live a happy, balanced life. This includes great pay, open vacation (yup, you heard that right!), great benefits, flexibility and, well, whatever else you need. Everyone is unique and we pride ourselves on not having one-size-fits-all solutions. At Return Path you're a person, not a title. What's important in your life right now? Kids, pets, triathlons, church, tango, karate, yoga, parents, Pilates, pre-natal - we will support you through it all. Give and take. That's a Return Path career path.

What it's like to work here

It's great! From the CEO and senior management team to the newest entry-level employee, we are a company that cares a lot about fostering a great work environment and a fun, energetic, success-oriented culture. We have a strong philosophical belief that our people are our most important assets. And we don't just pay lip service to that phrase -- we incorporate it into our policies, and we live it every day. Yes, that philosophy means we have generous 'traditional' benefits, and it also means we take a lot of time to focus on high quality management and leadership, and time to make sure everyone in the company is in the right job, knows how his or her job contributes to the overall company mission, and has a clear sense of learning and career growth. We have great employee retention over the years because people love coming to work here and really feel like they're part of something special. For more information visit
