Staff Software Engineer, Front-End

About Glue

Glue is rethinking work communication. We believe that today’s work chat is noisy, unstructured, and not optimized for productivity. We’re starting from first principles to build a smarter work chat—reducing noise, and integrating AI directly with team communication to help you get things done.

Opportunity

We’re looking for an experienced and passionate staff-level software engineer to join our front-end development team. As a key member of the early team, you will be instrumental in stewarding front-end best-practices architecture, and craftsmanship across the team. You will be pivotal in recruiting and developing a world-class engineering team that will support the massive vision of Glue’s impact on work communication. Our problems are heavily UI/UX-focused, and our technical foundation—modern Typescript, React, & GraphQL—is simple, straightforward, and battle-tested. As a technical leader of the team, you’ll get to help set the direction of the product, codebase, and team culture. We ship daily and experiment with ideas and interactions as we envision them, focusing on usability, attention to detail, performance, and innovation around optimal team communication.

You:

  • An accomplished staff-level or equivalent software engineer with deep experience in front-end technologies, including Typescript, React, and preferably typed backend APIs such as GraphQL.
  • Love to identify opportunities and implement improvements to existing systems and workflows for performance, scale, speed, and accuracy. You like leveling up the team around you.
  • A self-starter, a builder, a doer. You know how to architect a project the “right way”, but also know when to ask about requirements and make tradeoffs depending on the maturity of the project.
  • You care about details but know when to avoid getting lost in the weeds and prioritize the immediate outcomes needed.
  • You want to be part of a scrappy, early team who is building something ambitious and exciting.

What will help you succeed:

  • 8+ years of front-end web development experience, including 2+ years with Typescript and React
  • Deep understanding of web technologies including the DOM, CSS, and Javascript.
  • Independent and self motivated—maintaining side projects or libraries a major plus
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to clearly articulate ideas to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Optimistic attitude and a "let's try" approach to tackling difficult situations
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field is preferred

Benefits

  • This is an early role, but we’re offering a very competitive salary in addition to significant equity, a healthcare package, and whatever equipment you need to excel at your job.
  • Flexible vacation policy and work/life balance—we’re moving quickly but want a sustainable culture.
  • We’re currently located in San Francisco, but open to remote applicants.
