At Front, we’re redefining work communication 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.

The Front Platform team is in charge of delivering the best cross-product experience to our users by providing and maintaining tools (HTTP APIs & SDKs) for developers to easily integrate any system into Front. Our platform currently has 40 integrations (developed both internally and by third party partners), but there’s more work to be done. We’re looking for an experienced full-stack engineer to build off of our strong foundation and scale the next generation of the Front platform.

Responsibilities:
- Own central, complex components of the Front platform
- Full stack web application development with a variety of technologies including but not limited to React, node.js, Electron
- Work closely with our Product Manager and design team to help drive and deliver on our product roadmap (frontapp.com/roadmap), turning 1-pager specs into features
- Work closely with operations and infrastructure to build and scale back-end services
- Obsess about the quality of the product and the work you produce

Requirements:
- 5+ years of industry experience with a strong track record of launching and delivering projects of significant complexity and high level of ambiguity
- Experience architecting, deploying and operating a fast growing distributed platform
- A strong product mindset: we’re a product company on a mission to change how teams get work done so they can achieve more together
- Knowledgeable about modern web technologies and excited to learn new ones, e.g. ES6, Babel, Electron, AngularJS, React
- Fluency in a dynamic language like Javascript, Python, Ruby, or similar
- Understand the trade-offs in employing different engineering solutions to a problem, valuing pragmatism over idealism
- Ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, collaborative, and high-growth environment

Bonus:
- Experience with performance benchmarking and diagnostic tools
- Extensive experience in node.js or a modern front-end JS framework like React
- Familiarity with email formats or intricate details of HTML parsing
- Experience working with a multi-data center setup
