Hi, I’m Julia, Engineering Manager at Customer.io. I’m looking for a Front-End Engineer to join our growing Engineering team.

We’re looking for a product-focused Front-End Engineer to help us empower companies to 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, but 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,
  • Build and improve editors for messaging channels like email, push or in-app,
  • Create dashboards to explore performance data visualization and customizable tables (more generic visualization over graphs),
  • 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:

  • A collaborative mindset backed by excellent communication skills and a desire to help us make great decisions in an empathetic and respectful way,
  • Large experience using front-end technologies like JavaScript and CSS to build complex web applications. Ember.js experience is nice to have, but most of our engineers have succeeded while picking it up on the job,
  • 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.
  • Preferably based in the Americas time zones or West Europe/Africa.

  • Company retreats twice a year – we typically get together IRL every spring and fall, but most recently had an amazing virtual retreat!
  • Flexible schedule, work anywhere you want! – as long as you have a reliable internet connection and some overlapping work time with your manager, you can work where and when you want

All final candidates will be asked to complete an employment and education verification authorization form (which allows us to verify your job history and education listed on your resume) as part of our pre-employment process.

Customer.io recognizes the stifling impact of systemic injustice on diverse communities. We commit to using our influence to increase inclusion and equity within the tech industry. We strive to build an inclusive team culture, implement bias-free hiring practices, and develop community partnerships to expand our global impact.
