Constant Contact has announced it is recruiting for developer jobs in Boston.
has opened an office in San Francisco, bringing its total number of U.S. offices to four. The newly constructed space is located at 49 Stevenson Street in the popular SoMa district, home to some of the area’s fastest growing technology companies. Constant Contact announced plans to open a West Coast office when it acquired San Francisco-based NutshellMail earlier this year. Having a solid foothold in the country’s top two technology hubs, Boston and San Francisco, provides an optimal operations base for Constant Contact to best serve its customers and partners, and to tap an expanded talent pool to meet its ever-growing talent needs.
Mark Schmulen, general manager of social media, and David Lyman, director of software development, both of whom joined Constant Contact as part of the NutshellMail acquisition, will lead the San Francisco office. “Our new office, located in the heart of San Francisco’s technology scene, provides a fun and energetic work environment,” said Schmulen. “We’re looking forward to building off of the momentum from NutshellMail by hiring people who share our enthusiasm for developing solutions to make social media marketing simple for small businesses and organizations.”
Constant Contact, which recently surpassed 400,000 paying users, is hiring developers in both San Francisco and Boston. “The NutshellMail acquisition brought us technology and talent to complement the expertise we have today,” said Bob Nicoson, chief human resource officer at Constant Contact. “Now we’re looking to grow our East and West Coast teams even more. In our San Francisco location, in particular, we are searching for smart, innovative software and quality engineers who get excited about working with new technologies, social media, NoSQL and web user experience.”

In addition to its West Coast ties through the NutshellMail acquisition and its work with hundreds of West Coast partners, Constant Contact has had a local market presence on the West Coast for the past five years through its regional development director (RDD) program. RDD’s provide hundreds of free seminars and interactive workshops each month to local small businesses and nonprofits in 20 North American markets, including San Francisco.
“Our free education, training and personal coaching services — provided online, on the phone, and through in-person seminars in local markets — are unmatched in the industry. Only Constant Contact offers both the tools and the know how to help small organizations more meaningfully engage with their customers as a fast track to growing their business,” Nicoson said.
California and San Francisco have strongly supported small businesses; their commitment is well-aligned with Constant Contact’s mission to help small organizations succeed. According to the 2009 Annual Report compiled by the California Small Business Development Center (SBDC), individual SBDC chapters reported spending more than 82,000 hours in 2009 alone assisting small businesses with business plans, loan applications, cash flow management, government contracting, and other needs.
