About the role

About Rippling Rippling is the first way for businesses to manage all of their HR & IT—payroll, benefits, computers, apps, and more—in one unified workforce platform.

By connecting every business system to one source of truth for employee data, businesses can automate all of the manual work they normally need to do to make employee changes. Take onboarding, for example. With Rippling, you can just click a button and set up a new employees’ payroll, health insurance, work computer, and third-party apps—like Slack, Zoom, and Office 365—all within 90 seconds.

Based in San Francisco, CA, Rippling has raised $700M from the world’s top investors—including Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, Sequoia, and Bedrock—and was named one of America’s best startup employers by Forbes (#12 out of 500).

We Are Engineering-First. Today 50% of Rippling is engineers, product managers, and designers. For our first three years, engineers owned the product without any support. Of course, we’ve grown a lot since then. But our culture remains engineering-led. Want to create something from nothing? Our team has 50+ ex-founders who will teach you how. More interested in scaling a product? Learn from Rippling engineers who cut their teeth at Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

About The Role We’re looking for Senior Engineers to be founding members of Rippling's next billion-dollar vertical.

Interesting problems this team will work on: Implement an S-expression based calculator used for millions of calculations per second Abstract complex networks to build a generic API framework that is capable of moving billions of dollars. Play a foundational role in not only the engineering systems we may use (Rust, Postgres, etc) to build this product but also help drive complex business initiatives.
