About Us

Amper is a rapidly-growing IoT startup that helps manufacturers unleash their potential with modern software to run operations.

We build a simple but powerful platform that helps manufacturers reduce costs, increase visibility, and drive efficiency. We believe in keeping things simple and easy-to-understand - and our culture and products are a reflection of that. For example, it takes a few minutes to self-install Amper on any kind of industrial machine - like a consumer device and without the traditional hassle of integration.

Our vision is to build the market-leading FactoryOS to enable cutting-edge operations, and we are investing in the next level of growth across our GTM and product teams. We are a venture-backed startup with a distributed team and HQ in Chicago.

About You

We’re growing our engineering team and we’re looking for a Senior Front End Engineer to take ownership of our front end development, tooling, and developer experience. While some full-stack work will be expected, your primary focus will be on enhancing the user interface and overall experience of our platform.

Working as a Senior Front End Engineer at Amper means working in a wide variety of contexts. Our front ends are largely built with React, alongside some third-party tools. We build for both web and mobile, ensuring a seamless experience across platforms. You will also work on improving our development tooling and processes to enhance productivity and maintain high-quality standards.

Being an engineer at Amper also means being a “product person.” Our engineers don’t just move tickets from pile A to pile B. Led by a Product Owner, you'll help us work through new ideas and figure out the best way to implement them.

You’ll enjoy working at Amper if you:

  • Have a strong appetite for the unfamiliar; that includes technical content as well as solving problems our customers face

  • Believe that being helpful and humble are just as important as technical know-how

  • Can teach the things you know well, and acknowledge what you can learn from others


  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • Expertise in front end technologies, including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (React preferred)

  • Experience with front end build tools and development pipelines (Webpack, Vite. etc.)

  • Strong understanding of UI/UX principles and best practices

  • Some familiarity with back end technologies and frameworks (Python preferred)


  • 5+ years of professional engineering experience with a front-end focus

  • Previous experience owning / leading front end development for an application

  • Knowledge of DevOps tooling and practices (CI/CD, Monitoring)

  • Interest in UI design / visual design


  • Unlimited PTO, 2-week minimum

  • 401(k) plan

  • Health insurance (medical, vision, and dental)

  • Flexible work schedule
