Software Engineering Intern (Summer 2020)

San Francisco, CA

Intern
Email is the universal communication tool for work. It’s where you discuss work, answer questions, and talk to all of your customers, vendors, and partners. But email wasn’t made for business and hasn’t evolved to help you work with a team. So you’re dropping the ball, missing important context, and relying on many siloed apps that make you less productive as a whole.  

With more than 5,000 customers and $79 million in funding from Sequoia, Threshold (formerly DFJ), and others, Front is reinventing the inbox so people can accomplish more together. We’ve created one place where you communicate internally and externally, gain context about customers and projects, and access all your other tools so you can be more efficient, more fulfilled, and ultimately happier at work.

As an intern/co-op on our engineering team, you’ll help us reinvent the inbox for teams by working on high-impact projects like building new product features, improving our integrations framework, and optimizing customer onboarding. You’ll receive dedicated mentorship and learn from a world-class engineering and product team that’s experiencing rapid growth. Along the way, you’ll also become a part of Front’s award-winning company culture and learn how a successful organization scales. This is an exciting opportunity to have a path into a full-time role within the Front Engineering team, upon a successful internship.
