    We’re looking for a Back End Engineer to join the engineering team at Zapier. Want to create a simple product that allows anyone to do complex, incredible things with the world’s APIs? Then keep reading! We know applying for and taking on a new 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. We hope you’ll take the leap of faith and apply. Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce. We skew heavily towards candidates who have professional experience with Python. If you have none, or it has been a long time since you worked in Python, you can still apply, but know you’ll be ranked against candidates with current experience. About You You love building new things. Your work could be on our workflow engine, the editor that our customers use to build their Zaps, our platform where partners build their integrations, or any number of areas in between. You’ll have a primary focus on backend development in Python, though may need to jump into the frontend from time to time. Zapier is built on Django, React, node.js and AWS. We use modern tools, which means you’ll have the opportunity to work with software like Memcached, RabbitMQ, Zookeeper, Docker, Redis, Jenkins, Puppet, Ansible and much more. You have worked with teams before on large Python projects.You’re also familiar with frameworks like Django and React You understand how to design systems in a distributed manner across hundreds (and even thousands) of servers – we handle 100s of millions of API calls every week and are growing fast. You love shipping to customers. Your engineering projects will focus on understanding customers’ needs and translating those needs from product specifications into functional, production ready code. You’ll have the opportunity to ship code daily that will be used by millions of people. You love doing things efficiently. At Zapier, we believe in “Don’t be a Robot, Build the Robot.” We build systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves. You love learning. Engineering is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet. You love to set your own course. You will have a team meeting and a one-on-one meeting every week where you can help direct the course of your projects. You’ll have a direct impact on what we work on next. Things You Might Do Zapier is a small, 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:
    • Help scale a fast-growing and unique system – our workflow engine connects with thousands of APIs across thousands of servers
    • Plan and build product features – directly impact how our customers can be more productive
    • Improve our developer platform – directly impact the way partner devs add their apps to Zapier
    • Ship code to millions of users every week
    • Work with hundreds of different API integrations
    • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts
    • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change
    • As a part of Zapier’s all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.
    You’ll also have the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas of the Zapier codebase, including core product or platform development. Focusing on a specialization will not limit your area for growth at Zapier as each engineer brings a unique perspective and can contribute differently in all areas. We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects. About Zapier For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job.

    Help us build the most awesome billing engine in the world! ClubCollect --one of the hottest Dutch fin-tech startups-- is looking for an experienced backend software engineer.

    We've created a service for (sports) clubs and other organizations to make invoicing of club members a breeze. Invoicing, reminding, online payments: everything is processed via ClubCollect. Our customers (mainly treasurers of sports clubs) absolutely love our product. Tens of thousands of club members have already made payments using our service.

    We're a small team (just under 50 people including 15 programmers), we love remote working but we also like to get together for beers and a great dinner.

    ClubCollect is built in Ruby (+ Ruby on Rails) and Elixir (+Phoenix). For this position you'll mainly develop in Ruby, with a chance to learn Elixir. We value simplicity, creative solutions, and the ability to get things done.

    You will have the opportunity to contribute to all areas of our code base.

    @recruiters: please don't contact us, we're not interested.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • You love Ruby
    • Experience with Erlang would be great
    • Several years experience with a modern web framework such as Rails or Django
    • Not shy to touch JS

    BENEFITS

    • Remote working but you must live in the European Union due to occasional team meetings in Amsterdam
    • Your own choice in top-of-the-line development hardware
  • About Sourceress

    Our mission is to help people find work that matters. We believe that the world is better when people understand the opportunities available to them. Our human-assisted AI platform delivers great results to our customers (customer quote: "I'd have a panic attack if you guys stopped existing").

    Because of this, we raised $3.5M from OpenAI researchers and Lightspeed Venture Partners at one of the highest ever valuations coming out of YC. Our team has previously sold companies, published machine learning research, has Dropbox's former Chief of Staff, and hails from MIT, Google, Airbnb, McKinsey, etc.

    Help us create a world where all 7 billion people work at jobs that they love, do things that they’re great at, and work for companies that are solving meaningful problems.


    Responsibilities

      • Solve the most important problems facing the business (generally by writing software, but not always!)
      • Minimize the complexity of the software that we create and maintain.
      • Continually improve your own software engineering skills (whether via side projects, classes, or whatever else works for you)
      • Help develop our team of talented engineers by mentoring, collaborating on projects and providing detailed code / architecture reviews.

    Sample projects

      • For detail-oriented engineers that love to build beautiful and highly correct products: we have greenfield customer-facing product work. These users depend on and love Sourceress, and are eager to help improve the product and provide feedback to your work.
      • For engineers that love rapid prototyping and hate CSS: we have a variety of products for our highly-trained internal contracting team. These are critical to the magical feeling of our product and often require creative solutions and complex interfaces.
      • For engineers who love data, systems, and infrastructure: we're also building a distributed model training and model scoring system. Because we care about all of the candidates in the world, we run into quite interesting infrastructure scaling problems that most startups would not hit they were much larger. As a result, a relatively small number of engineers get to solve “large” infrastructure problems end-to-end.
      • For engineers interested in machine learning, we have a variety of interesting problems touching a huge variety of sub-fields: NLP, deep learning, interpretability, fairness, graph-based learning, entity resolution, and much more are all relevant to our work. Engineers without prior experience but interest in learning can and will be taught the relevant skills.
      • For those engineers who care about clean code, developer tooling and productivity: we pride ourselves on exceptional developer tooling, and are constantly investing in our internal tools. For example: we've created a method that that allows us to attach a debugger to any process that has encountered an unexpected exception, even in production. This tool (we call it the Platinum Debugger) eliminates the time-consuming and often difficult step of reproducing the bug for about 90% of our bugs, vastly improving our productivity.

    Requirements

      • 3+ years of software engineering experience.
      • You’re an effective executor. You understand both the value of shipping quickly and of software craftsmanship, and have the judgment to know when to apply each. You’re capable, focused, and productive.
      • You’re cognizant of the multi-year consequences of your decisions.
      • You’r dependable. You do high-quality work, on time.
      • You’re incredibly smart.

    Stack

      • Typescript (react)
      • Type-annotated Python 3 (django, scikit-learn, pytorch)
      • PostgreSQL
      • AWS

    Responsibilities

      • Create product features that solve customer problems and make interacting with Sourceress a delightful experience.
      • Own projects from conception and design through testing and deployment.
      • Collaborate with product, design, and users to understand the requirements and determine what we should build.
      • Minimize the complexity of the software that you create and maintain.
      • Continually improve your own software engineering skills (whether via side projects, classes, or whatever else works for you)

    Sample projects

      • Create tools and interfaces for customers to integrate our service more tightly with their own recruiting workflow (whether that's in their browser, their inbox, or via our own interface that let's them quickly find and add candidates to their process).
      • Ensure that candidates have a great experience at each customer -- integrating into the application tracking system to ensure that no candidates are dropped, flagging high priority candidates for the customer that need action right now, and allowing customers to see metrics about their recruiting funnel so they can improve the experience themselves.
      • Give customers visibility into, and control over, the entire product and recruiting process -- it currently operates mostly as a black box, and exposing the options already present in the system will make customers feel more in control and even happier about the product experience.

    Requirements

      • 3+ years of back end software engineering experience.
      • Strong software engineering skills.
      • Understand both the value of shipping quickly and of software craftsmanship, and have the judgment to know when to apply each.
      • Highly focused and productive.
      • Empathetic, thoughtful, and impact-oriented.
      • Enjoy designing, building, and shipping projects independently.

  • Who are we?

    Plato is a new type of design agency. We empower people to do what they love from anywhere in the world. Our vision is to blend the best of human creativity with the power of Machine Learning to reimagine collaboration with each other, and partnership with our clients.

    We believe that if you hire talented folks, lead with trust, and give people the tools they need to succeed, then creativity will come. Our team is completely distributed, but we’re building new modes of operation together.

    Our team leverages technology to collaborate because we want to, dives into deep work when we need to, and (every so often) connects in real life because we like to. With us, you get the opportunity to be curious and collaborate with passionate peers, without sacrificing autonomy or career ownership.

    Plato is proud to be backed by Y Combinator and some of Silicon Valley’s best investors. Join us on our untraditional, inspiring journey.

    What We're Building

    Plato’s engineering team focuses on managing the complex flow of tasks, assets, and data between clients, creatives, and Plato agency staff, leveraging a workflow system to encode the processes for each types of design projects.

    We strive to:

    • enable our clients to request new design projects and provide feedback
    • let creatives in our network submit work and iterate
    • empower our agency team to oversee many projects with minimal coordination overhead

    Roles & Responsibilities

    • designing and building our core workflow engine
    • integrating or replacing the software tools used for managing agency processes
    • instrumenting and measuring efficiency metrics to help understand agency capacity
    • discovering and proposing optimizations to the agency team’s workflows

    Your Working Style

    • Strong Written Communication Skills: Plato is a remote-first team. In order to work effectively as a distributed team, it’s important to capture our thinking in a way that’s useful for asynchronous collaborators. - note about cover letters being required?
    • Productive Laziness: Plato’s goal is to scale beyond what other agencies have been able to accomplish. This involves relentlessly chasing down mundane tasks that can be automated, in order to free up creative thinkers to do what they do best. Successful Plato engineers will have found ways to automate their personal tasks or engineering workflows and enjoy analyzing existing processes and looking for optimizations.
    • Empathy for Users and Colleagues: We believe that engineers who genuinely care about their colleagues and users will be more effective in spotting potential improvements and in prioritizing tactical fixes that help users alongside the team’s core engineering work.

    Your Background

    • >= 5 years Web Development Experience: We are looking for engineers who can take ownership of large parts of our architecture. This requires thoughtful tradeoffs such as when to incur technical debt vs when to engineer something more robustly. We believe this kind of skill is earned through a track record of building and owning substantial systems. 
    • JS/React and Python: Though we use a Python/Django API backend with a React frontend, we believe that candidates with the right attitude and a willingness to learn are more likely to succeed than those with resumes that happen to contain the exact list of technologies we work with. This was our policy at the last company we founded (URX YC S’13), and lifelong learning is a core part of our engineering culture.
    • System Architecture: Independent of the tech stack, it’s important to understand various options for integrating a multi-component system through queues, databases, micro services, etc.
  • 2 months ago

    We look for people who are:

    • As passionate about helping customers succeed as they are about working with new technologies.
    • Confident, and value freedom (we work almost exclusively from home), but humble enough to ask questions when they are stuck.
    • Want to build new things, but don’t mind rolling up their sleeves and doing what needs to get done.
    • Love to work directly with customers to solve their business problems.
    • Want to work hard, but balance that with the rest of their life.

    We are looking for a passionate engineer to be the next member of our growing developer-owned company. We care far less about what particular technologies you’re working with than we do about your experience and passion for building useful software. We are looking for an individual who has experience building production web applications and is as passionate about helping customers succeed as they are about working with new technologies. We need a person that is confident and values freedom (we work almost exclusively from home), but is humble enough to ask questions when they are stuck. We need a person who wants to build new things, but doesn’t mind rolling up their sleeves and doing some maintenance work. We are looking for someone who wants to work hard, but balances that with the rest of their life. We know this is a hard mix to find, but if you feel like you’re up for the challenge, please get in touch!

    Requirements

    Loves to work directly with customers to solve business problems

    Being within < 2 hours driving distance of Richmond or Charlottesville is a HUGE plus!

    Linux/infrastructure experience a plus

    Experience writing modern/production web applications using any of ASP.NET MVC, Rails, Django, Node.js, etc…

    Experience with HTML/CSS

    Experience with JavaScript

    Experience with writing tests and using automated testing frameworks

    Experience with AWS/Azure/Google Cloud a plus

    iOS/Android experience a plus
