About Rippling

Rippling is the first way for businesses to manage their HR & IT — from payroll and benefits, to employee computers and apps — all in one, modern system.

In just 90-seconds, a company can set up (or disable) an employee’s payroll, health insurance, work computer, and third-party apps, like Gmail, Microsoft Office, and Slack. It’s the only platform that truly unifies every employee system, and automates all of the administrative work.

Rippling is headquartered in San Francisco and has raised over $200M from top-tier investors, including Founders Fund, Greenoaks Capital, Coatue Management, Kleiner Perkins, and YCombinator.

About The Role

The Hub team builds Rippling’s core data models and the HR functionalities in the product. Rippling is built as a hub-and-spoke model, where the hub team sits in the middle of all products within Rippling. We allow other teams at Rippling to create and refine new products by building the necessary foundations. Additionally, our team owns the HR functionality built on top of the core data models, allowing employees and admins to manage their employee system of record on Rippling.

  • Develop high-quality software.

  • Have very clear ownership of one or many product spaces.
  • Get exposure to the different company partners and our end-users, who will help provide feedback for your product space
  • Learn and understand how your product can help Rippling continually differentiate itself.

  • You’re passionate about being in a product-focused environment where everyone cares deeply about customer impact.
  • If you don’t necessarily meet all of the requirements listed here, we still encourage you to apply because skills can be used in lots of different ways, your life experience is equally important sometimes.
