Meet the Zapier Team - Introducing Frontend Engineer, Emily Jones

Emily Jones / December 20, 2016


My name is Emily Jones, and I'll be joining Zapier's frontend team as a frontend engineer. I'm super excited to be working with the many talented people who populate the Zapier team!

I first heard about Zapier while I was working at Hack Reactor, who uses the service for some of their workflows. It wasn't until I saw that they were hiring that I took a closer look. I was distracted from applying for the position by the awesome Zaps that were already offered - there was a solution to my multiple-Google-calendars-and-mulitple-Google-email-accounts problem! When I saw how easy and convenient it was to build a Zap, I was more intrigued. As I researched Zapier and what it's like to work here, I really set my sights on becoming part of the frontend team.

As a quick intro, I was born and raised on the front range of Colorado, spending time in Fort Collins, Boulder and Denver. My background is in fine arts - specifically the experimental film variety. I made the switch to software after college, when I was working at a film preservation company with an ugly website. I started tinkering with it and fell in love with web development. Fast forward to today, and I couldn't be happier as a frontend engineer at Zapier!

When I'm not working, I enjoy watching weird and/or classic movies, cuddling with my adorably feral cat, practicing French, reading books about science, tech and politics, listening to podcasts and trying to find someplace to live that's warmer.
