About You:

  • You can build scalable web apps. You have at least 5+ 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. This particular role is full-stack JavaScript, but It’s a plus if you have experience with Python and Django.
  • You can 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 care about users. You spend most of your time coding but are driven by solving user needs. You contribute to design and product strategy discussions with a broad understanding of both the constraints and opportunities created by technology.
  • 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 a systems-oriented mindset. You're inquisitive. You build a deep understanding of problems and are good at spotting patterns. You understand how to design and implement end-to-end software systems.
  • You value our values. At Zapier, our values are at the heart of how we work together and how we think about our customers. As a remote-first company, our values help develop trust and ensure we collaborate effectively to democratize automation. You recognize how our 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'll 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.
  • Design and build RESTful APIs to be used in a front-end application
  • Run experiments 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 to help them deliver value to customers in new and exciting ways
  • Help other engineers on the team and across Zapier
