At Kipsu, we believe that human connections are at the heart of great service. Kipsu is a high growth startup that is redefining how businesses engage their customers using technology. With an impressive list of clients in hospitality, retail, and healthcare, we are pioneering a new category of software tools that allow companies to interact with their customers via real-time digital channels such as text messaging, internet chat, social media and mobile app messaging.

We love the work we do, how we do it, and we’re constantly looking for the right people to contribute their skills and talents to our culture. Currently, we are on the lookout for a Full Stack Software Engineer who wants to join our team and take on the exciting and complex challenges of rapidly growing a software company. At Kipsu, we have built an engineering team that is tight-knit, agile, and embraces talented individuals who take initiative and get out there to make it happen. Sound like the type of culture you would excel in? Yeah, we feel the same way.
