  • At Zaarly, we are fixing what is broken in local home services by building great tools and providing exceptional service to local businesses and homeowners. In order to scale to new markets, we are improving and automating a lot of our manual operations and making our product more useful, usable, and delightful across the board.

    We’re growing, and we are looking for a few talented full-stack software developers to join our team, either remotely or in Kansas City.

    Why this job is important

    Working with a small team of very talented engineers, designers, and operators, you’ll play an important role building an incredibly unique, local marketplace. We’re a small company and a tight-knit team working on problems no other business has solved – everyone on the team is mission-critical.

    We are only interested in win-win arrangements with local small businesses. We never sell ads or leads, and we don’t require contracts or commitments. Zaarly only makes money when we deliver real value to the businesses who partner with us, and we work hard to do exactly that every day.


    • Building features that small business owners and homeowners rely on daily to get real jobs done. There are so many interesting problems to solve around building and maintaining trust, creating efficiencies for different kinds of small, local businesses, creating transparency in the market – the list goes on and on.

    • You have 3-6 years of professional experience, most of which has been spent working with a team on a web app with real users.

    • You’re a life-long learner and a student of your craft – both teachable and eager to teach in order to improve our team.

    • Either you are interested in working in our Kansas City office, or you have the skills you need to be a happy and successful remote team member. (Our product team is roughly 50% remote, so both of these options are totally fine. We try to bring the remote team members to town about four times a year.)
