Hi, I'm Darlene, Engineering Manager at Customer.io. I'm looking for a product-minded Senior Front-End Engineer to help us empower companies build meaningful conversations with their customers.
As a customer engagement platform, one of our biggest challenges is to turn complex concepts and workflows into fast, accessible and intuitive interfaces. And in this role, you’ll have a direct impact on the product with a high degree of ownership and freedom.
Our small, remote-first team is fun-loving, passionate and highly effective. As a distributed company we are committed to giving you the flexibility and freedom to work from anywhere in the world, on a schedule that fits your family and your life. We genuinely value diversity (one of our core values is awkwardness for a reason). We believe that embracing unique perspectives and expertise is key to our success as a collaborative team.
Thus we understand that you might not have all the skills listed below, that's okay. If you have a combination of some of the items and you're interested in developing the others, we want to hear from you!
What you'll do:
- Collaborate with the product, design, and backend engineering teams throughout the conception and development of front-end features,
- Develop maintainable, performant and well-tested UIs that help our customers easily send timely & relevant messages at scale,
- Contribute to our extensive design and component systems,
- Work with our tech support teams to diagnose operational issues and help our customers to achieve their goals with our product,
- Learn, practice, and share with your coworkers through code review, pair programming, team collaboration, and training to help improve our collective knowledge and best practices together.
What we're looking for:
- Preferably 7+ years of relevant experience
- A collaborative mindset backed by excellent communication skills and a desire to help us make great decisions in an empathetic and respectful way,
- A solid understanding of how to create front-end web applications that are both accessible and performant,
- Comfort working in UNIX environments and applying modern collaborative development practices,
- Experience working with customers and applying a deep understanding of their needs to produce timely solutions to their real-world problems,
- Experience working within a distributed company is preferred.

All final candidates will be asked to complete a background check and employment verifications as part of our pre-employment process.
