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 designed for business and hasn’t evolved with the way you work with a team. So you’re dropping the ball, missing important context, and relying on dozens of siloed apps just to get the job done.

With more than 5,500 customers 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.

Front was featured in Forbes’ Next Billion-Dollar Startups 2019, The New York Times’ The Next Wave of ‘Unicorn’ Start-Ups, Zapier’s Apps at Work Report: The Fastest Growing Apps of 2019, the Bay Area’s Great Places to Work, and of course Glassdoor.

Through building tools and products for other engineers, our infrastructure team acts as a team multiplier - think auto-scaling, horizontal sharding, scalable storage systems, application performance monitoring, and more. We are in the early phases of building out our next generation cells architecture that will support a scale orders of magnitude what we can today. Curious? Talk to us, we’d love to tell you more.

What will you be doing?

  • Design and implement a new Kubernetes staging environment that engineers can spin up in under a minute
  • Build tools to scale developer workflows for a >50 person engineering team, for example, schema migration automation tool to run online MySQL migrations across a large number of production database shards
  • Building blocks of our next generation cells architecture, a precursor to an on-premise solution
  • Troubleshoot and resolve low-level bugs and issues, e.g. memcached throughput exceeding AWS caps, network partitions in our AWS VPC

What skills and experience do you need?

  • Product mindset – we’re a product company on a mission to “advance how people work”
  • 5+ years of industry experience building highly available, large-scale distributed systems at a large-scale internet service
  • 2+ years of working on software systems built atop Amazon Web Services
  • Fluency in a dynamic language like Javascript, Python, Ruby, or similar
  • Strong track record of launching and delivering projects of significant complexity and high level of ambiguity
  • Experience architecting, deploying and operating asynchronous work queues, high-volume storage systems, high-throughput systems: you should not be afraid of writing code that will decide to start or stop 1000 servers
  • 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
  • Full professional English proficiency

Bonus

  • Experience as a tech-lead of an infrastructure team
  • Experience scaling data stores such as MySQL and Elasticsearch
  • Advanced Linux systems engineering skills
  • Experience with Kubernetes and Docker
