Job Description:

Front is a hub for customer communication that allows companies to offer tailor-made service at scale. Front looks and feels like your email inbox with a few very important differences: teammates collaborate in the same place where external messages are sent and received, and behind the scenes, robust workflows and integrations power the efficiency and insights typically found in a CRM. More than 6,500 businesses use Front to work together to send out the best replies faster, keep messages organized across channels, and always maintain a personal touch. The result is premier, personalized service that scales with your business - and a team that works together as one.

With $138M in funding, Front is backed by Sequoia Capital, and other leading venture capital firms, as well as independent investors including top executives of Atlassian, Okta, Qualtrics, and Zoom. Front was recently named to Wealthfront's Career-Launching Companies in 2021. We have also been recognized on LinkedIn's 2020 Top Startups, The New York Times' The Next Wave of 'Unicorn' Start-Ups, Fortune's Best Small Workplaces, and Glassdoor's Best Places to Work.
