Senior Front End Engineer

Affinity, San Francisco

Relationship Intelligence, Reimagined.

Over the past two years, we’ve seen enormous growth at Affinity. We've expanded our customer base in relationship-driven industries and we now power hundreds of top investment teams around the world - from investment arms of Fortune 100 companies to the biggest venture capital funds in Silicon Valley.

We’re fundamentally changing the way people cultivate and harness their networks, and we're building a world-class engineering team to tackle some of our toughest challenges. 

Affinity was founded with the philosophy that the best products win. In this role, you'll play an integral part executing on this philosophy, taking the lead in pushing the limits of what's possible with front end technologies to create a delightful, reliable, and lightning-fast product experience. Leveraging your past experiences and deep understanding of front end tech, you'll help shape our company's technical strategy, champion engineering best practices, and become a technical mentor for other engineers on the team. You'll play a significant role in defining the future of how businesses around the world use their relationships.

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You have at least 5 years of front end web experience
  • You’re fluent in web development technologies and have a good feel for what is and is not possible
  • You have a proven track record of building high-quality, complex, delightful web applications
  • You take pride in maintaining excellent product quality as well as championing engineering best practices
  • You're excited about teaching, learning, and working collaboratively across functions as well as within engineering
  • You like to voice your opinions, but are eager to change them based on data
Relationships are the backbone of the world's most valuable industries—from sales and business development to finance and philanthropy. But the tools used today to manage those relationships are broken. Actionable context remains locked away in the email and calendar streams of coworkers and colleagues, and no one has the time to analyze or organize this exponentially growing trail of data.

Affinity ingests and analyzes this massive communications data stream and uses it to power our platform, which helps our customers understand, manage, and leverage their networks more effectively.

We've raised over $40M, and in the past two years, we launched the product and have since processed over 1 billion communication data points and generated 4+ million introductions and connections while capturing close to 40% of the global venture capital market. We are also actively breaking into new markets.  We're growing fast and we’ve got a lot left to build.

Some of our core technologies are Ruby, PostgreSQL, TypeScript, React, React Native, and Redux. On the infrastructure side, we make extensive use of AWS, Kubernetes, and Terraform.

We love learning and teaching, and we’re happy to bring on strong engineers whether or not they have experience with these particular tools.

The more diverse our team is, the more we’ll be able to learn from each other, and the better our company and our product will be. Whatever your gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, age, veteran status, favorite Spotify playlist, or social, cultural, and economic background, we can’t wait to welcome you to Affinity!

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
