At Emi Labs we are on a mission to increase Frontline Workers’ access to professional opportunities.

This is a 2.7 billion population that accounts for 80% of the world’s workforce. They are digitally invisible, as there’s little to no data available on who they are, their career history, or their skill set, limiting their access to professional opportunities and growth. We're here to transform this by building the infrastructure to make Frontline Workers visible. 

Our first step to achieving our mission is to transform the recruiting experience into an easy, human and fair process, for both candidates and companies with high-volume job openings.
Emi, our main product, is an A.I. recruitment assistant that enables companies to engage in a conversation with each applicant to detect interested and qualified individuals while saving Recruiters a huge amount of time by automating tasks such as screening, validating skills, scheduling interviews, and collecting documents. 

We were part of Y-Combinator's Winter 2019 batch and in 2022 we have raised an $11M funding round co-led by Merus Capital and Khosla Ventures.

About the Backoffice team

Recruiters, Hiring Managers, HR Managers, HR VPs, and the Emi team use different versions of our web Platform in their day to day to do their work. This includes their daily operative tasks, as well as seeing analytics data to help them take tactical and strategic decisions.

This team is in charge of building and making it the best platform to hire frontline workers in the world.

What you'll be doing

You'll build a Front-End Development Squad while also participating in developing our platform including the design, implementation, and deployment of different features and improvements. 

You’ll need to move fast, understand the multiple platforms with which we work, and automate the interaction between recruiters and candidates. You will also identify, propose and implement improvements in the core infrastructure and the architecture and train new team members in the best practices for the software development, testing, and documenting.

You will work cross-functionally to set and execute the business and product strategy and roadmap by building the best interactive platform for our users to manage their hiring process.
