Front, the company replacing corporate email with an inbox built for teamwork, will create up to 50 new jobs in Greater Phoenix in 2020, its inaugural year in the region. With offices in San Francisco, Paris and now Greater Phoenix, the company is hiring marketing and sales professionals at the new Arizona location. Candidates are encouraged to apply at frontapp.com/jobs.

Front recently announced the appointment of Greater Phoenix local Anthony Kennada as Chief Marketing Officer and head of the Phoenix operation. Front is Kennadas second business expansion to Greater Phoenix, having brought San Francisco-based Gainsight, the Customer Success company, to Downtown Phoenix in 2013.

While the world of work has changed all around us, one paradigm has remained constant for over three decades: our corporate email. As a result, we are more overworked, more burned out and are lacking vocational fulfillment unlike ever before, said Anthony Kennada, CMO at Front. Thats the problem Front is solving in the marketplace, and as a result, is helping thousands of businesses work together with purpose. I am thrilled to help the company usher in its next chapter of growth, and even more excited to be doing so in Greater Phoenix, adding yet another case study to the evolving story of the citys incredible startup ecosystem.

The company considered multiple markets including Salt Lake City and San Diego, but ultimately selected Greater Phoenix due to the regions competitive costs to do business, the availability of talent, and access to local resources. In addition, the executive team was inspired by the energy in the local startup ecosystem and community, and felt an alignment of values with the entrepreneurs working to advance its interests.

Fronts new office in Greater Phoenix is a testament to our regions growing reputation as a tech hub, said Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. Front isnt just any tech company, though. Their commitment to creating an exceptional work culture and innovative product makes Front exactly the sort of startup we welcome to Greater Phoenix. We look forward to supporting their team in the coming years, and are excited to see their growth.

Founded in 2013, Front is building a platform that unifies people, messages, and appsstarting with email. In place of Gmail or Outlook, Front is an inbox that unites teams to do their best work. Front brings email together with team collaboration, other communication channels, and business-critical apps, all in one place. By fixing email, Front untangles convoluted processes, miscommunication, and the crossed-signals that hamper most teamwork, helping teams get aligned, stay focused, and act faster than ever before.

Front has raised $79 million in funding from respected venture firms including Sequoia Capital and Threshold Ventures, and is proud to work with more than 5,000 customers representing leading brands such as Cisco Meraki, MailChimp, Shopify and Arizona-based Carvana. In 2019, Front was recognized as the #1 Small Workplace in the U.S. by Fortune and Great Place to Work.

Another tech company has chosen Arizona to grow their business, a testament to the environment in our state that encourages innovation,” said Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. “Arizona welcomes Front, and we look forward to the big things ahead for this company.”

Under Governor Duceys leadership, Arizona offers the best environment in the nation for companies to scale their operations quickly, said Sandra Watson, Arizona Commerce Authority President & CEO. Thanks to investments from companies like Front, our state continues to lead the nation in tech job growth. We congratulate the Front team on its expansion and look forward to supporting its success well into the future!
