We know applying for and taking on a new a job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. Hopefully you'll take the leap of faith and apply.

Job Description

We're looking for someone who's eager to help our newest and fastest-growing partners, like Zoom, Calendly, and Airtable, succeed in launching and growing their Zapier integration. If you're excited about SaaS, APIs, and automation, then read on.

About You

Meaningful relationships maximize your success. You prioritize creating, nurturing, and managing personal relationships over relying on hastily-made contacts.

Strong writing is a skill you sharpen non-stop. From authoring a short, convincing email to an 800-word persuasive blog post, you don't stop honing your craft.

Long-term customer success tops short-term revenue. You pull in partners to activities that yield sustainable gains not just one-time growth bumps.

Business development isn't just for BD professionals. You don't hesitate to hold a cold call, design and deliver a presentation from scratch, and make a persuasive big ask.

HTML edits are familiar territory. You're comfortable digging into "inspect element" in Chrome or changing up a marketing email layout.

Efficiency impacts outcomes. You consistently automate manual processes to free up time for more meaningful work.

Action beats inactivity. When you're given a task, you take ownership and find an effective way to complete it, whether or not it requires dozens of Google searches.

Learning gives you satisfaction. You strive to improve your work and expand your industry and marketing knowledge.

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a startup, so you'll get experience with a little bit of everything. That said, here are some things you'll get to work on:

  • Create marketing materials, including launch blog posts, announcement emails, and partner help resources
  • Persuade integration partners to tie their product to Zapier more closely
  • Approve, edit, and create 500 Zap Templates monthly
  • Establish and maintain meaningful relationships with Zapier's integration partners
  • As a part of Zapier’s all-hands support philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible

About Zapier

For the past five 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 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 that credentials don't say everything. Our CTO has a finance degree. Our CEO has an engineering degree. Our CPO has a mechanical engineering degree. What you love doing is way more important than the credentials you have.

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