Full-time
Front is on a mission to make work happier with the first-ever customer communication hub. Relationships are everything in business, but they’re hard to maintain as a business grows because traits like trust, compassion, and empathy are human qualities that have been difficult for technology to scale. We’ve reimagined the way businesses communicate by bringing customer conversations to the center of one’s focus. Today, nearly 8,000 businesses–including Dropbox, Airbnb, Lydia, and Saint Gobain–have discovered that they can still grow their business and keep the human touch. With $204M in funding, Front is backed by Sequoia Capital and other leading venture capital firms, as well as independent investors including top executives of Atlassian, Okta, Qualtrics, Zoom, and PagerDuty.

The world is on course to work happier. We believe our role is to accelerate and shape this path in three ways: the product we make, the culture we live, and the example we set. We strongly believe in our company values of transparency, high standards, collaboration, low ego, and care. And we look for candidates who reflect these same values. Employee happiness and well-being is a vital component of life at Front. We offer flexibility in work schedules via our Flexible Fridays program and host events for employees to enjoy time with their fellow Fronteers. Whether it is building Legos, playing board games, singing at Karaoke nights, watching movie marathons, or enjoying a homemade DJ set done by a Fronteer, we are always on the lookout to invent fun ways to enjoy life both in and outside of work.

We are looking for experienced Full Stack engineers to help us extend the core features of Front and bring collaboration beyond email. To be successful in this role you must be a quick learner, have proven software development skills, enjoy solving hard problems, and work well in a small, cross-functional, dynamic team.

What will you be doing?

    • Design and contribute to sub-systems to make Front a better, more powerful collaboration software.
    • Work closely with product managers, product designers and other engineers to conceptualize, build and test new features.

What skills and experience do you need?

    • 5+ years of industry experience building fast, reliable, real-time web-based applications.
    • Knowledgeable about modern web technologies and excited to learn new ones, e.g. Node.js ES6, TypeScript, React
    • Exposure to architectural patterns of a large, high-scale web application.
    • Product minded: committed to building the best user experience.
    • Ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, collaborative, and high-growth environment.
    • Understand the trade-offs in employing different engineering solutions to a problem, valuing pragmatism over idealism.
