Sr. Software Engineer (Front-End)

| Greater Boston Area
Appcues is a SaaS platform used by hundreds of software companies to improve their products without writing any code. The Appcues frontend engineering team is responsible for building and maintaining features that directly empower customers, from our browser extension that provides a drag-and-drop interface for customers to build their dream UX, to the UI patterns that help millions of end users every month achieve their goals faster.
We're looking for talented web developers to join our team and help our customers build products their users love.

A typical project might include:

  • Web development in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to support and extend our customer-facing WYSIWYG editor, analytics dashboards, and management interface, as well as our end-user-facing JavaScript SDK.
  • Conception, design, and user-testing of new features and products, with an eye toward rapid iteration and agile processes.
  • Creating microservices when necessary, to support new frontend initiatives with a minimum of duplicated code.
  • Working with design, customer success, technical support, and sales to translate customer needs into working code and tight UX.

You might be a great fit if you have:

  • 4+ years experience developing software for the web
  • A great teamwork ethic
  • Experience with modern JS frameworks, e.g. React, Angular, Vue, Knockout, Backbone, etc.
  • Strong knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3

A bit of a bonus (but not a dealbreaker)

  • We love a good GitHub account
  • Experience with databases, caches, and other persistence layers
  • Background in product or UX design
  • Expertise in responsive and accessible design

At Appcues, our mission is to help teams build products their users love. With Appcues, you can create in-product experiences (user onboarding, feature announcements, checklists, and more) without writing any code. We believe it’s the non-technical people who often have the best information about a user’s needs and desires, and we give them the tools to act.
We’re a dynamic group of talented teammates who challenge, trust, and care about each other, the work we do, and the success story we are writing. Our values are not just words, we live by them.
Appcues is an equal opportunity employer. We believe a diverse team is a stronger team.

An Insider's view of Appcues

What’s the vibe like in the office?

You walk into the Appcues office and you are immediately greeted by our office dog and distinguished citizen ZEKE! Among our many office dogs, we also have some pretty cool humans. Appcues is full of some of the brightest, most creative, and strategic minds I've ever met. I truly feel so lucky to be in the presence of all of these people everyday.

Tanya

Senior Marketing Designer

What does your typical day look like?

What I love most about being a CSM here is that there isn't a typical day. Some days I'm focused on talking to customers about their experience, other days I'm focused on heads down work and collaborating with my team on big picture initiatives. Each day presents different challenges and learning opportunities, and it's the best part of the job!

Okello

Customer Success Manager

What is your vision for the company?

We are surrounded by software—it’s in our homes, at our offices and in our pockets—and most of it, frankly speaking, sucks. At Appcues, we’re on a mission to make every experience with software an amazing one. To do that, we’re creating tools that empower anyone, regardless of their technical ability, to improve the UX of their product.

Chief Product Officer, Co-Founder

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to take ownership over pieces of the customer experience that excite them. Trusting people & letting them know that you believe in their decisions empowers them to be more creative & experimental with their solutions. We have a culture where if things don't go as expected, it's not a failure, but a chance to do better next time!
