Headquarters: San Francisco, USA
Why we want to hire this role now
We started Chameleon
after being frustrated at poor user onboarding, and feeling required to speak with sales before we could start using new products.
As engineers, we want to solve the hardest problems, and apply our creativity to design beautiful software. It's tedious to build and maintain tooltips, or banners, so we built Chameleon to let the product people handle that independently, while letting engineers focus on the core value proposition a product provides.
Chameleon exists as a layer between our customers' web applications and their users. This means that the software we build is for our thousands of customers and tens of millions of their end-users.
As we gain more customers, they require our software to handle more and growing use cases. The way web applications are built is changing rapidly; UX patterns are getting smarter; organizations are embracing the product-led movement.
- As software becomes more self-serve, we will stay ahead of the curve to to better enable software around the world.
We are looking for a Senior Front-end Engineer who thrives in a remote startup environment, is passionate about building great software, and enjoys a wide variety of problems.
You will be a key member of our engineering team, work closely with our CTO and enable us to improve our product velocity.
