Senior Software Engineer (Frontend)

What is Yammer?

Yammer is THE social network for the workplace - used by millions of employees every day to build community and culture, share knowledge, and connect with their leaders and each other.

Why Yammer?

Yammer was one of the first startup unicorns this past decade and we were acquired by Microsoft in 2012. A lot of what makes working at Yammer special is the unique blend of being a “startup” within a top-tier tech company. We have the autonomy and freedom to innovate. We get to make our own technology decisions and pick the best of open source and internal technology. We run Linux on Azure, use Macbooks for development, Snowflake for analytics, etc. At the same time, we also enjoy the benefits of working at a top tech company, Microsoft, when it comes to compensation, benefits, opportunities for growth, brand and networking.

The last few years our focus was directed inward on much needed infrastructure improvements, like moving to the cloud. Despite this, our active user base still doubled in this time period. We’re now able to focus our energies on totally revamping our product and user experience and releasing brand new product capabilities. It’s a great time to join - we are already at scale but there’s so much uncharted territory in front of us.
