Role Description

Sakari is hiring for an experienced Front End Engineer to help build our growing startup. You can work remotely until it’s safe to return to our offices in San Francisco.

Who we are

Sakari helps businesses reach their customers through SMS, and over time we’ll support voice and chatbots using AI. We serve thousands of businesses across more than 40 countries, and have offices in San Francisco, North Carolina and the UK - so far.

Founded less than five years ago, Sakari is not a typical software startup. We are not funded by venture capitalists or business loans. Our days are not consumed with growing “runway” or launching an “MVP.” We’re not racing for a quick exit. If not this, then what are we? We’re a market-proven and profitable company scaling at a strong pace thanks to organic, sustainable growth.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for a Senior Front End Software Engineer who is passionate about building the future of business communications. As a small, tight-knit team, every engineer at Sakari makes an outsized impact with the opportunity to touch all parts of our system. We move fast so that ideas quickly become reality, designing for scale at the outset. We want the businesses we work with to be able to move quickly to reach their customers with the right message at the right time, so we always build with self service in mind.

We’re looking for the kind of person who is excited to have a blank canvas to imagine - and build - the next generation of business messaging. As one of our first front end engineers, you’ll be responsible for the future direction of Sakari’s UI/UX development. You’ll determine the architecture, tools and processes that we’ll use to take us to the next level. You’ll have a hand in all stages of the product development lifecycle, including UI/UX design, writing and reviewing code, as well as overseeing deployment. You’ll also work with our backend team to develop an API suite for the UI.

In the past, business tools have been notoriously complicated and painful to use. We want Sakari to be simple and intuitive for our customers - as easy as sending a text. Your primary goal for 2021 and 2022 will be to re-architect and simplify our existing user interface. You’ll use your expertise and keen understanding of what businesses need to build V2 of our dashboard using the best of breed technologies.
