We're reinventing email by making it easier to use for teams who share an inbox. Email began life as a tool for individuals to manage their personal communication. Over time it's become used by teams to handle all external communication. The email clients haven't kept up with this change, Front is the email client used by teams to share their inbox (e.g. sales@ or support@ address) and collaborate easily with each other.

Engineering at Front
Technical Challenges

1) We're building a client that works equally well across web, desktop and mobile. We have dedicated applications for each platform, which creates more technical complexity than your average startup.

2) Front is a product used by team members daily as a crucial part of their workflow. This creates a lot of product and users challenges, as even a small tweak to our UI could have a big impact on the daily routine and happiness of our users.

Projects you might work on
  • We are looking for experienced backend engineers to join the team responsible for the core systems that power Front - a rules engine service that evaluates thousands of rules in milliseconds, a real-time inbox counter service that is fast and precise, and more. As you can imagine, this means a lot of responsibility and a tremendous amount of impact. The systems that you will work on need to be performant, scalable and reliable, all at once.

  • 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.

  • 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.
