Senior Front-end Engineer, Automation


Paris, Europe - Remote

Gorgias helps e-commerce companies deliver excellent customer service at scale. We integrate email, live chat, voice, Facebook, Instagram, and SMS with Shopify, BigCommerce, and Magento.

Our product creates a unified customer profile by combining emails, live-chat, and social-media messages with e-commerce data such as purchase and delivery info. Combining all this data in a single application makes customer service more efficient and just better. Another fortunate side-effect is that some requests are completely automated using machine learning. 💬 + 📦 = ❤️

We've been around since 2015, and we're serving over 6000+ e-commerce businesses, including Steve Madden, Timbuk2, Decathlon, and Sports Illustrated.

Our growth exceeded 200% in 2020, so we raised $25 million Series B in December 2020 to double our global team and to accelerate our progress towards our mission to transform support from painful to exceptional for merchants. 🥳

About the Automations engineering team

  • The team's primary function is the automation of the customer support process. We enable merchants to configure rules for auto-responses, organize tagging rules and set up intelligent auto-replies for the end-users eCommerce needs. We also provide tools to make support agents more efficient, like macros and phrase prediction.
  • There are currently 2 machine learning engineers in the team, two full-stack engineers, 1 senior full-stack engineer, and the engineering manager.

What ongoing projects is the team working on?

  • Complex rules - this is a UI-intensive feature where merchants can create complex trigger-action rules.
  • Smart Auto Responses - these are additional capabilities of the rules system and are blocked by a paywall.
  • Macros - these are canned responses for replying to frequent customer queries. A merchant can create their own macros.
  • Phrase prediction - when agents reply manually to end-users, they are assisted by a specialized phrase prediction solution.
