Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.

Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if you meet these criteria:

 

About You

You know how to build scalable web apps. You have at least 4+ years of software development building web based software products. You’ve worked across the stack, and though you may know more front end frameworks or building web services, you can dive into any aspect of an application. Zapier is built on Python, Django, React, Node.js, and AWS. It’s a big plus if you have experience with languages and frameworks. 

You know how to build frontend components. You’ve used a modern frontend framework to develop frontend components. You value user experience and think about reuse as well. 

You value code quality. You understand that testing your code and good code coverage is essential in delivering a solid product. You know how to document well and lean on automation whenever possible. You have an understanding of tech debt and can formulate a plan to address it, but know how to ship production ready code.

You have experience with Web APIs. In this role, you'll be working with many different APIs. You’ll need to be able to dig into their documentation, build proof-of-concepts, and then build complex  integrations with those  APIs. Basically, you'll need to know and love Web APIs.

You have a systems oriented mindset. You understand how to design systems in a distributed manner across hundreds (and even thousands) of servers, and understand how interdependencies can affect what you build.  -Zapier handles 100s of millions of API calls every week and is growing fast.

You value our values. At Zapier, our values are at the heart of how we work together and how we think about our customers. In our remote setting, they help develop trust and ensure we work and collaborate together to democratize automation. You see how these values can empower meaningful work, you thrive in a collaborative setting, you are eager to continue growing and you’re excited to be part of the team. 

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a fast-growing,  remote-first company. You'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • Building and scaling web products that directly impact our customers or partners.
  • Developing frontend components and UIs that are reusable and highly performant. 
  • Create tooling that enables automation that leverage other microservices in our architecture. 
  • Translate several RESTful data sources to be used in a front-end application
  • Run experiments and tests to learn what techniques work best at keeping users engaged and informed
  • Monitor reliability and performance through dashboards and tools to ensure availability
  • Dig into bugs and feature requests 
  • Work with teams and stakeholders across Zapier - marketing, partnerships, companies - to help them deliver value to customers in new and exciting ways
  • Help other engineers on the team and across Zapier

As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.

About Zapier
