Advancing the way people work

We started Front around a simple goal: to help people thrive at work.

People should be excited to head to work on Monday — from accountants to engineers, sales reps to customer service agents. Empowered to solve hard problems. Collaborating with their teammates. Enabled to do their best work.

But reality doesn’t measure up. Too often, getting work done is a struggle against an overflowing inbox, endless distractions, and unclear priorities. Our tools haven’t caught up with how we want to work.

That’s why we’re building new ways for teams to communicate and collaborate easily, openly, and with the information they need. So every conversation with a customer, partner, or teammate helps them move faster, make smarter decisions, and learn from each other.

Shared inboxes are just the beginning. When we work with open communication and trust, we get more done. We’re able to find a little more happiness at work.

And we believe happy people make more happen.

The values that guide us


Our communication is open, candid, and constructive to foster a culture of trust and integrity.


We hold ourselves to the highest standards and always go the extra mile for our customers.


We strive to be generous and thoughtful in every interaction with each other and our customers.


Everyone on our team shares in our impact, and we’re better together than we are on our own.
