Remote Senior Front End Software Engineer

Job Description

The polymer, ingredient, and chemical industries are undergoing a digital revolution. Those suppliers and distributors who embrace modern digital strategies will thrive. Over 8,000 of the world’s top suppliers and distributors use Knowde to accelerate their digital transformation and foster business growth.

Knowde addresses the core challenge impeding the industry’s digital transformation: the organization and digitization of product data. Knowde’s Proprietary Knowledge Engine extracts, cleans, and organizes unstructured product data within weeks, creating master data in a PIM system that supports business tools, internal teams, and exceptional online customer experiences.

Knowde revolutionizes how customers discover, engage, and transact with suppliers and distributors online — whether on your existing website, Knowde’s marketplace, or both.

To achieve our vision, we’ve secured over $110M from leading investors, including Sequoia Capital and Coatue, who recognize that digitally transforming the chemical industry will globally accelerate innovation.
