      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. 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 in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct. The Whole Package Location: Planet Earth. If you want to work remote, that’s great. If you want to work near others, that’s cool too. Our team of 200+ is distributed because it lets us work with the best people. You don’t have to be located in the USA either. Some team members live in the United Kingdom, Thailand, India, Nigeria, Taiwan, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia, and more! You just need the skills and drive to succeed in this role and the ability to work from anywhere. Compensation:
      • Competitive salary (we don’t use remote as an excuse to pay less)
      • Great healthcare + dental + vision coverage*
      • Retirement plan with 4% company match*
      • Profit sharing
      • 2 annual company retreats to awesome places
      • 14 weeks paid leave for new parents of biological or adopted children
      • Pick your own equipment. We’ll set you up with whatever Apple laptop + monitor combo you want plus any software you need.
      • Unlimited vacation policy. Plus we require you to take at least 2 weeks off each year. We see most employees take 4-5 weeks off per year. This isn’t a vague policy where unlimited vacation means no vacation.
      • Work with awesome companies around the world. We partner with great software companies all over the world and you’ll constantly get to interact with people from these great companies
      *While we take care of our international folks as best we can, currently, healthcare and retirement plans are only available to US-based employees.
    • Overleaf (Core hours 2pm-5pm UK time)
      2 weeks ago

      Core hours 2pm-5pm UK time. Applicants in North America and the EU (including UK) are preferred.


      What We Do

      Overleaf is a startup and social enterprise that builds modern collaborative authoring tools for scientists — like Google Docs for Science. We have over four million registered users from around the world. Our primary product is an online, real-time collaborative editor for papers, theses, technical reports and other documents written in the LaTeX markup language.

      Who We Are

      Overleaf was founded by two mathematicians who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for scientific collaboration and communication. Now we are a team of about forty with fifteen developers, based mainly in and around the UK and in the US. We were recognised as one of the UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses in 2018.

      About a third of our development team joined us through our acquisition of ShareLaTeX, another major online LaTeX editor, in 2017, and we've now integrated the two teams.

      Our Tech

      Overleaf is based on open source software, and most of our product code is itself open source. You can find it on GitHub: https://github.com/sharelatex/sharelatex (note: most activity is in the repos linked from there).

      We run a mainly Node.js back end using MongoDB, PostgreSQL and Redis. We use a microservices architecture, with about a dozen services. Most of our code is written in CoffeeScript, but we are in the process of decaffeinating to use ES6. On the front end, we mainly use Angular v1 and are incrementally migrating to React.

      We're hosted mainly on Linode and managed with Chef but will be moving imminently to Google Kubernetes Engine. We use Docker to manage our development environments. We support continuous delivery and typically deploy at least a few times a day (less on Fridays).

      How We Work

      Overleaf is remote-first — all founders and staff work remotely. We also have an office by King's Cross station for those in the London area, and we get the whole team together in London several times a year for face-to-face time.

      We encourage flexible working. Our core hours are 2pm–5pm UK time, during which our development teams have 10–15 minute daily standup calls. We have few standing meetings for developers, but we do many smaller video or voice calls for pairing or within teams.

      We always collect user feedback to inform our work. We have UX professionals on our team, and we run many surveys and user interviews.

      We organize our work with Kanban. We use GitHub pull requests for each feature with code review to share knowledge and best practices (and catch bugs). We test thoroughly with automated unit and acceptance tests, supported by continuous integration (CI). We're also fans of linting to minimise bike-shedding (and to catch bugs).

      About This Role

      We plan to add two developers to our team, one with a back end focus and one with a more full stack focus. Experience with some of Node.js, Kubernetes, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis, Angular and React are desirable. Ruby on Rails experience is also a plus, because we have one Rails service from before our integration with ShareLaTeX.

      Key projects on our road map this year include:

      • University Single Sign On — make it easier for users at our 60+ institutional customers to log in to Overleaf
      • New releases of our on premise editions — anyone can install our open source Community Edition, and many labs and companies install our commercially supported Server Pro edition
      • Improve our B2C conversion metrics and monitoring — a more data-heavy project focused on web analytics

      Here are some examples of projects (large and small) we've recently completed:

      In the longer term, we are planning projects around improved collaboration features for teams, improvements to our rich text mode, and more.

      How We Hire

      The stages in our hiring process are typically:

      1. We will aim to update you on the status of your application within 14 days from when we receive it.
      2. We'll follow up by email (or sometimes schedule a phone call) with any questions we have about your application, usually around logistics, your ambitions and your expectations about the role.
      3. We'll schedule a more in-depth interview, which is typically two hours long. The first hour is discussion, and the second hour is technical. For the technical, you'll have the option of either completing a homework assignment, which requires about one hour of your time before the interview, or solving a problem in the interview, if you prefer. The problems are practical in nature (no fizz-buzz or reversing linked lists), and you can use Google, man pages, etc., and ask us questions.
      4. We'll make an offer. We usually interview in batches, so there may be a short delay while we interview other candidates, but we will try to keep you informed throughout the process.

      If you have a deadline, please let us know in your application, and we will try to be accommodating.

      Requirements

      We require that you:

      • have a minimum of 2–3 years of relevant experience (we aren't taking on more new graduates at the moment).
      • will work for us full time (or nearly full time).
      • will usually be available in our core hours, 2pm–5pm UK time.

      Experience with the technologies we use is always a plus, but you don't need to know them all; your ability to learn is much more important to us.

      Benefits

      • Remote and flexible working.
      • Salary £40k–£75k per year depending on experience.
      • You would join a small, dedicated and growing team.
      • We're substantially (around 80%) open source, so your work will often be on open source code.
      • We're backed by Bethnal Green Ventures (https://bethnalgreenventures.com/) and Digital Science (https://www.digital-science.com/), through which we're part of a wider community of startups in science, health and ed-tech.
      • Our London office is shared with several other Digital Science companies, so there's lots of interesting people to meet, and clubs and sports activities outside of work.
      • We get everyone together in London for team meetings several times a year for valuable face-to-face time.
      • You can pick your own equipment. MacBook Pro? Lenovo ThinkPad? Notebook and pen? However you like to work, we'll provide what you need.
      • We provide a training budget; many of our developers choose to attend relevant industry conferences or buy training materials.
      • We run a biweekly internal seminar series (show and tell) with short talks from staff about their work or personal projects, new technologies and techniques.

      We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

      We look for people who are:

      Research is the oxygen for intelligent innovation, which is why Respondent is revolutionizing how it’s completed. Our mission is to be the most-trusted global marketplace for research that delivers higher-quality, faster connections to respondents.

      Respondent is a two-sided marketplace that connects market and usability researchers with the highest quality research participants in the world. Our platform gives researchers a single place to quickly find the right participants for their projects, as well as schedule and pay them instantly. It simplifies the work that’s necessary to conducting quality research. Companies like IBM, Airbnb, Uber, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble and many more have already integrated us into their research processes.

      Respondent is not only at the forefront of research we are also at the forefront of work trends. We are firm believers that the world is transitioning to a remote workforce and as a result, are an entirely distributed team. Cities are becoming more expensive and commutes are growing longer. Working on a distributed team gives our team members the chance to live in more affordable and desirable locations without a lengthy commute.

      We are a small, quickly growing startup. Working as a distributed team allows us to hire the best talent regardless of location (right now everyone works in a US Time Zone). As a growing startup all employees work up and down their vertical. You will work on things that seem more senior than you are used to (you’ll be answering problems that no one has the answers to) while simultaneously working on things that seem more junior than you are used to--and everything in between. Additionally, to fill gaps across our small team all employees work outside of what they might consider their normal job responsibilities. This blog post outlines how we work as a distributed team.
      We encourage those who are underrepresented in technology companies to apply!

      Responsibilities:

      * Directly manage seven engineers--we’re growing!--through coaching, giving feedback, having one-on-ones, assisting with career development, giving performance reviews, etc.
      * Hire for and build an incredible engineering culture.
      * Create and improve engineering processes, applications, and systems for scale (you are leading this from the ground up!), which you will need to ensure are documented and communicated. You will build the blueprint, which will be hugely impactful for the company.
      * You will report to the CEO, manage projects and collaborate with key stakeholders, including other teams such as design, product and sales.
      * Perform code reviews (we use Node.js).
      * Guide and build scalable backend applications to support the growing needs of the business.
          * Work with both SQL (we use Postgres) and NoSQL (Neo4j/MongoDB) databases and caching technologies like Redis.
      * Take full ownership and responsibility for building, shipping, and maintaining core features, end to end.
      * Collaborate with our Co-Founder and Architect to scale infrastructure and introduce new technologies.
      * One of your first projects will be to do an audit of how we do things (look at our processes, talk to engineers, etc.) and determine what are priorities should be.

      Who are you?

      * Proven ability to lead high performing teams and to promote an incredible engineering culture
      * A BS degree in Computer Science or other related technical fields preferred
      * Experience with Node.js applications in production (most of our stack), REST APIs, CI/CD and unit testing
      * Comfortable with agile methodologies (scrum, kanban, etc)
      We are looking for someone who matches our level of joy for the work we do, brings something new to the team, and elevates our game. Our values are: Always Researching, Ownership, Active Honesty, and Thriving Together. Read more about them here.

      Benefits:

      Working at Respondent is a unique experience. You will be part of a remote, diversified team around the US. and world. We care deeply about creating a cohesive, tight-knit culture that gets results. That’s why we offer our employees the following:

      * Work remotely from anywhere in a US Time Zone (this does not have to be in the US itself, but rather must be in a US Time Zone: ex. Mexico City, Mexico)
      * A new office set up, including a new Macbook Pro, desk, second screen, ergonomic chair, and wireless mouse & keyboard
      * Health insurance for US-based employees covered at 99% for individuals and 50% for dependents (non-US employees receive a healthcare stipend)
      * Short Term Disability covered at 100% for all US-based employees
      * Dental and Vision insurance offered at group rates to lower the cost for US-based employees
      * Four weeks of flexible vacation (need a bit more for religious or country holidays--no problem!)
      * Paid holidays
      * Stock options
      * Company retreats for teammates to get to know one another in-person: our last retreat was in New Orleans!

      Respondent is an equal opportunity employer

      • Maintain project starting templates in various stacks and languages
      • Publish how-to articles and tutorials

    • We are looking for an expert Javascript developer to help us build frontend apps for our products and services. You will be working with the Vue.js framework primarily, bringing UX to life and developing all the frontend interface and interactions. Experience of working with Vue.js is obviously a plus, but more generally you will need to be a strong all-round Javascript developer with a solid grasp of HTML/CSS as well. If you're also proficient in working with backend Node.js as well, that would be a bonus.

      You will need to be a creative problem solver, as much of the work requires creative approaches to unique technical challenges which often don't have much - if any - coverage on sites such as Stack Overflow.

      The complexity of the software is also a key component. Much of what we are building is concerned with complex data structures (including SVGs) as well as the inevitable complexities of scaling an app out into large organisations. As such, you will need to have a strong engineering mindset with the ability to think through problems in a structured way. Or to put it another way, you should be able to produce robust, tested code that will stand up in production.

      Responsibilities

      • Building robust frontend apps with the Vue.js framework, including unit tests
      • Creating custom single-file components for use in the interfaces
      • Developing applications for parsing and working with XML structures including SVG data
      • Writing clean, well-documented and well-tested code with strong adherence to modern ECMAscript standards
      • Optimising applications for maximum speed and scalability
      • Working with the team to solve complex challenges and contributing ideas and solutions regularly

      Skills and qualifications

      • Strong understanding of vanilla Javascript and latest ECMAscript standards
      • Basic understanding of web markup, including HTML5 and CSS3
      • Minimum 2 years experience of working with the Vue.js framework
      • Experience of working with state management systems, preferably Vuex
      • Experience of writing unit tests in tools such as Jest or Mocha (or component snapshots)
      • Familiarity with frontend build tools, particularly Webpack
      • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools including Git
      • Good understanding of browser rendering behavior and performance
      • Bachelors degree in computer science
      • Excellent communication skills

  • Product (1)

    • Simple Thread (USA)
      6 days ago

      We are looking for a thoughtful, detail-oriented developer to be the next member of our growing developer-owned, remote-friendly, people-first, hyphen-loving company. 

      The ideal candidate would have several years of experience working in open source web frameworks. They would also be eager to learn, grow, and foster healthy working relationships. 

      If you have experience building production web applications and are as passionate about helping customers as you are about working with new technologies, then we want to talk! 

      Requirements

      Skills & Requirements


      Do you love to work directly with customers to solve business problems?


      We believe great software is discovered by understanding the core problems our clients are facing – and that is best achieved through frequent and direct communication with the subject matter experts. We provide leadership to support and guide interactions, but we need you to be comfortable talking with clients, discussing problems, and proposing solutions, which may not always be more software. 

      Do you have experience writing production web applications?

       

      We strive to support our team’s growth, learning, and taking on new roles at the edge of our comfort zones. At the same time, our clients expect us to bring a certain level of expertise. If you have never worked on a production web application, it is unlikely you will succeed here, even if you have other types of engineering experience.


      Are you able to work remotely, within +/- 2 hours of US Eastern time zone?


      We all mostly work from home. This requires the ability to self-direct and communicate well in writing. It also offers tremendous freedom and power, which comes with, uh, tremendous responsibility. We currently require our team to be within a 2hr time zone difference of Richmond, VA and physically based in the United States.

       Bonus Points

      Being within easy driving distance of Richmond or Charlottesville is a huge plus!

      Experience with:

      Open source web development platforms (Rails, Django, Node.js)

      Writing tests and using automated testing frameworks

      Modern HTML/CSS (nothing crazy, we have a design team)

      JavaScript and front-end JavaScript frameworks

      Linux/Infrastructure/DevOps

      AWS/cloud architectures

      Mobile-first development, iOS/Android, React Native, etc.

      WHAT WE OFFER

      A Great Team – Our team of engineers and designers is the best part of working here. We only hire people who are fantastic teammates – competent and smart, sure, but also humble, positive, and generous.

      Great Clients – We work with mostly small and medium clients, for whom our projects make a huge impact. We prioritize clients who are pleasant and good to work with, people who share our values of transparency and empathy.

      Work From Home – We are a distributed company. Everyone works from home, though the leadership team all live in central Virginia.

      Negligible Travel – In general, we don’t travel routinely for projects. If this is a specific concern, we’re happy to discuss.

      Flexible Work Schedule – We require a certain amount of overlap with the rest of the team, but if you have a predictable schedule, we can probably support it, e.g., ending at 3:30 every day or being out every Friday morning.

      Good Work Life Balance (really) – We ask our team to work 40 hours a week*. That’s all: a good, productive 40 hours. And then we try our best to leave you alone off the clock. We do this in part because that’s how we want to live but also because we want our team to be recharged and ready to do their best when working. *If you need to work fewer than 40 hours, that might be possible too; let’s talk.

      Competitive Compensation – We offer highly competitive salary and benefits, including generous time off, 401k, FSA, medical and dental insurance.
