Vero is the messaging platform that scales personalisation.

We enable engineers and marketers to work together to track, store and organise their data and workflows to power more useful email and push messages. We've tracked over six billion actions for more than five hundred million end-users and we're growing quickly.


You will be working closely with Vero's Head of Engineering and other Senior Engineers and Designers to design and implement new features and improvements to Vero's web-based UI. Our focus is on building an easy-to-use yet powerful and flexible product.

We are looking for a talented Front-end Engineer with Ember.js (or similar JavaScript) experience who can help help drive the implementation of our product roadmap and ensure the continued, long-term success of Vero.





  • Think ahead and build for the future as opposed to band-aid fixes for today. We need to balance the “getting things done” part of a startup with long-term future-proofing of Vero's application.
  • Working closely with the product manager and designer in preparing and approving the scope of work for development teams.
  • Taking a customer-focused approach to development work.
  • Develop tools and applications that use clean, efficient code, ensuring code quality and standards while meeting deadlines and delivering targets set by the product team.


We're looking for someone to join our team who can ensure we build architecture for the long-term. You need to have a strong problem-solving ability and the aptitude to consider the big picture when solving engineering challenges.

We strive for elegant solutions that are as simple yet as effective as possible.

We expect that you'll have an interest in and respect for both the latest technologies available on cloud providers, as well as traditional technologies such as PostgreSQL. We have found that often tools and frameworks tried-and-tested over decades provide the most elegant solutions.

Three key values lived at Vero are:

  1. Humility. We listen and learn. We aim for as little politics and ego as possible at Vero.
  2. Empathy. We're a remote team with people from all over the world. We believe in inclusivity and work hard to understand and support each other.
  3. Care. People at Vero look out for each other. We work together to achieve tasks, and we back each other up.

We're proud of our culture and if these values sound on point to you, we'd love to hear from you!
