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.
You are interested in APIs, and what differentiates the great ones from the rest. You want to become an expert in API standards, and aren't afraid to dig into HTTP requests to find out how closely an API follows them. You're interested in seeing where technology can be put to use in automating processes. You are a capable programmer, but you are more interested in the applied side of technology, than putting your head down and cranking out hundreds of lines of code. At Zapier:
If you feel like growing your experience and taking on these responsibilities, this role may be for you. This is a chance to build your expertise in API integrations, while working to automate your way through new challenges within a growing team.
You can think of this role as one that needs the knowledge base that an engineer has, but is more focused on working with people. Good experience to have had (in addition to any engineering experience) is in QA or QE, teaching/training, sales engineering or business development, or project management.
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.
