Gladly is a Radically Personal Customer Service Platform that puts people at the center of a single, lifelong conversation. We enable companies to talk to their customers the way people talk to their friends: seamlessly across voice, email, SMS, chat, and social media.
What You’ll Do
- Code! You’ll design and code innovative, scalable, and fault-tolerant features
- Teach. Provide technical guidance and mentorship in software engineering best practices while demonstrating these as an individual contributor
- Collaborate. Work closely with small, nimble, cross-functional teams of engineers, product managers, designers, and business teams.
- Contribute. Participate in all aspects of the project lifecycle, from ideation to specification to release (sometimes in a leadership role).
What You Bring To Engineering Team
- 5+ years of full-stack engineering experience, with some leadership or mentorship experience.
- Strong teamwork skills; you love participating with high-performing teams of engineers.
- Customer-centricity and product focus. You look at everything you create through the lens of how it improves things for the end-customer. You are comfortable communicating how various technical approaches might impact the product behavior (and vice versa).
- Competency with data structures, algorithms, software design, and cloud architectures.
- Willingness to work across the development stack. You should be able to work on the front-end, backend and platform with varying degrees of proficiency.
- Technical acumen. Our product is built on a lot of incredible technologies like React, Node, Go, Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, Kafka, Redis, Postgres, ElasticSearch, and Twilio. You know a thing or two about some of these, and you’re confident you can work with them comfortably after some on-boarding and a bit of practice.

Founded in 2014 by a team of repeat entrepreneurs with multiple successful exits, Gladly is reinventing customer service. By managing customers instead of tickets, we are disrupting a $70B market and are proud to count JetBlue, Warby Parker, Crate and Barrel and many other innovative brands as customers. Gladly has raised over $110M from Greylock Partners, NEA, GGV Capital, Glynn Capital and JetBlue Tech Ventures.
Gladly has made the decision to become a full distributed company, allowing employees to live anywhere in the United States, and candidates to come from nearly any geographical region. That said, we also highly value our collaborative and creative culture and commit to meeting in real life as a company at least once per quarter when it is safe to do so.
