Customer Support Engineer
We started as app developers who just wanted a developer-friendly API for push notifications. Finding no good solution, we built one ourselves.
Today, OneSignal is the leading solution for sending effective messages across channels including mobile push notifications, web push notifications, in-app messaging, SMS, and email. We support over 1,400,000 of the world's leading marketers and developers.
OneSignal is available on every platform and development environment, letting content creators focus on quality user engagement instead of complex implementation.
Covid-19's Impact on OneSignal
Covid-19 has accelerated OneSignal's growth. Near the beginning of Covid, we saw a 20%+ increase in new accounts created for OneSignal each day and a 20%+ increase in daily message delivery volume. This trend has continued as more businesses seek to better engage with their customers on digital channels.
We are growing faster than ever, and hiring in all departments. We hope you'll apply and we look forward to meeting you!

Above and beyond discrimination/harassment based on 'protected categories,' we also strive to prevent other, subtler forms of inappropriate behavior (e.g., stereotyping) from ever gaining a foothold in our office.
