You love collaborating with teammates to understand and address their data needs and help them become more effective.

About You

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 are a skilled programmer. You don’t expect to come up with designs and leave implementation to others. Instead, you dig in and get stuff done. Our main tech stack is Node and Python, you’ll be working with both.

You solve problems. Engineers write lots of code, but that is not all they do. You can recognize when something isn’t working and do the work to figure out how to fix it. This could be with code, or by working with your teammates.

You are a skilled written communicator. Zapier is a 100% remote team and being able to communicate well is critical. Chat and video are our primary means of communication. You can communicate unfamiliar technical topics clearly and in an approachable way.

You want to do what's best for users. Integrations are at the core of Zapier's value to our customers, and we want to keep building ones that are of the highest quality and solve our customers' needs.

Your experience lifts others up. You love assisting others and use your prior experiences to mentor, no matter how many or how few you have.

You understand that perfect is the enemy of the good. One of our core values is defaulting to action. You can ship code and systems that just work and work simply, while iterating as needed to get towards better solutions.

Things You Might Do

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

  • Build and maintain Integrations on the Zapier platform for crucial APIs
  • Migrate applications to new APIs as the need arises
  • Dig into bugs and feature requests 
  • Work with our partnerships team to solve problems for external groups
  • Help other engineers on the team and across Zapier
  • Be a shepherd for our platform and partners
  • Be available for emergencies if there is a problem with one of our apps when on-call.
  • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.
  • You have 2+ years of experience with development

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

How To Apply

We have a non-standard application process. To jump-start the process we ask a few questions we normally would ask at the start of an interview. This helps speed up the process and lets us get to know you a bit better right out of the gate.

After you apply, you are going to hear back from us, even if we don't seem like a good fit. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to make sure you never go more than seven days without hearing from us.

About Zapier

For the past nine years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

We believe that with the right tools, you can have a big impact with less hassle.

We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

We believe in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.

The Whole Package

Location: Remote in North America

Our team of 350+ is distributed (remote) because it lets us work with the best people. We have team members that live in the United Kingdom, Thailand, India, Nigeria, Taiwan, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia, and more! While we can hire many roles in locations anywhere in the world, some require specific timezone fits. 

Compensation:

  • Competitive salary (we don't use remote as an excuse to pay less)
  • Great healthcare + dental + vision coverage*
  • Retirement plan with 4% company match*
  • Profit sharing
  • 2 annual company retreats to awesome places
  • 14 weeks paid leave for new parents of biological or adopted children
  • Pick your own equipment. We'll set you up with whatever Apple laptop + monitor combo you want plus any software you need.
  • Unlimited vacation policy. Plus we require you to take at least 2 weeks off each year. We see most employees take 4-5 weeks off per year. This isn't a vague policy where unlimited vacation means no vacation.
  • Work with awesome companies around the world. We partner with great software companies all over the world and you'll constantly get to interact with people from these great companies

*While we take care of our international folks as best we can, currently, healthcare and retirement plans are only available to UK, Canada, and US-based employees.

Zapier is an equal opportunity employer. We're excited to work with talented and empathetic people no matter their race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, or age. Our code of conduct provides a beacon for the kind of company we strive to be, and we celebrate our differences because those differences are what allow us to make a product that serves a global user base.
