KeyMe is a New York City-based company that is revolutionizing the way people gain access to their property. Via artificial intelligence and robotics, it allows users to store, share, and duplicate their physical keys based on a digital image. Fully automated, self-service key duplicating kiosks can be found in over 1,800 locations in 44 states inside of Bed Bath & Beyond, Rite Aid, 7-Eleven stores, and many major grocery store chains today. The free mobile app allows users to manage their keys either scanned at a kiosk or from phone pictures so that they can access their keys when and where they want, at a kiosk or via mail order, and never get locked out again. KeyMe is currently developing a new business to revolutionize locksmith services and create an amazing customer experience based on transparency and trust, while also bringing quality work to locksmiths, eliminating the need for them to pay for dead leads. This new business is fed by demand for these services generated from our local businesses across the company, and in turn the new business will feed KeyMe’s duplication business.

Headquartered in Manhattan, KeyMe is an exciting, well-funded (over $100M raised to date backed by Comcast Ventures, Battery Ventures and White Star Capital, among others), tech startup that is solving real consumer pain points. The company expanded its install base by 5X in 2017, and is on track to more than triple revenue in 2018.

Senior Front End Engineer

KeyMe is a robotics company that uses computer vision and machine learning to bring innovation to the locksmith industry. Our primary product is a self-service key-copying kiosk that lives in stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond. We have a hard-working but low-stress culture and are looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our team.

The KeyMe Locksmith-in-a-Box is a kiosk that can both digitize physical keys and create physical keys from digital backups in the cloud. If you ever lose your key or get locked out of your home, you can scan your fingerprint at any KeyMe kiosk and print a copy. The user interface for our kiosk is built on standard web technologies.

You will work out of our Manhattan office, focusing primarily on new product and feature development. You will interface with senior engineering and business leadership to build technology road maps and execute on those plans. You will also mentor and coach junior engineers and serve as a technical leader.


- You likely have around 5-7 years of production engineering experience, and have expertise in front-end web technologies (HTML, CSS, Javascript, etc)

- You have the strong ability, and ideally experience, to be a technical leader - to help define architecture, to bring a point of view on different frameworks and tools, to mentor junior staff, and to communicate with clarity, conciseness and confidence.

- You are super experienced and knowledgeable in Vue.js, or similar modern JS frameworks.

Good to have:

- SCSS / SASS familiarity, knowledge of best practices and opinions

- AWS, or other scalable cloud based platform, experience
