At Front, we’re redefining work communications and collaboration with our shared inbox for teams. Front brings all of your communication channels (email, Facebook, Twitter, Twilio SMS, live chat etc.) into one place, so you can triage and assign messages, have internal conversations around them, and even sync work across other apps you use from Salesforce to GitHub, without ever leaving your inbox. Today, over 3,000 companies rely on Front to power their communications, and we’re just getting started.

Front is a complex AngularJS app with high performance requirements: some of our teams involve hundreds of users working together in real-time on thousands of messages every day. While our initial approach has worked well to date, we are starting to push the performance limitations of that design and we're migrating to React. We are looking for an experienced frontend engineer based in San Francisco to help architect and build out the next version of Front’s app.

- Own central, complex components of the Front application
- Drive and deliver on our product roadmap (frontapp.com/roadmap), turning rough specs into features
- Ramp on new web technologies that will make Front better
- Find elegant solutions to usability problems
- Provide leadership and mentorship to other engineers on the team

- 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. ES6, Babel, Electron, AngularJS, React
- 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

- Experience with complex front-end projects such as migrating a mature app from AngularJS to React
