About the role

Interested in a 🚀 startup experience? We’re scaling fast at Zip (YC S2020)! Zip is tackling the $50B+TAM space to transform the way businesses manage spend. We started Zip because we saw the challenges companies had using outdated 20 year old software to manage hundreds of millions of dollars every year. We are a small but mighty team that helped scale category-defining companies like Airbnb, Facebook, Salesforce, Apple, Quora, Pinterest, and Square.

Your Role

We’re growing quickly and need your help: We launched in early 2020 and are growing by 40% every month. We have a wide product surface area, covering request management, no code workflow builders, customer-facing reporting dashboards, connections to ticketing systems, integrations with financial systems, B2B payments processing, and more.

As a software engineer you will be responsible for building Zip’s core products and architecture. You will ship features that will be immediately used by our users, and will work with a tight-knit team that values open communication and cross-functional collaboration. We move quickly to solve a wide range of complex technical and product challenges. While we are an experienced team that can provide constant guidance and mentorship, we value engineers who can autonomously scope and solve difficult technical challenges.

You Will

  • Design and build an API integration framework that will enable Zip to scale from 30+ to 100+ integrations.
  • Build and manage 30+ spend workflow integrations with applications like Jira, Asana, ServiceNow, DocuSign, NetSuite and more
  • Design and build highly reliable and resilient products and features.
  • Work closely with cross functional product and customer-facing teams to understand requirements and ship thoughtful solutions.
  • Write high-quality, extensible, and maintainable code.
  • Design and build scalable frontend applications and components.
  • Design and build APIs to drive existing and new features for a web-based application.

Qualifications

  • 3+ years of software engineering experience.
  • BS or higher, in Computer Science or related technical field involving coding (e.g. physics or math)
  • Experience building API integrations with external applications
  • Experience with web application and API development in production environments. At Zip, our stack includes Python, Javascript, React, and GraphQL.
  • Experience with industry standard build, test, deploy tools. At Zip, our stack includes Kubernetes, Spinnaker, Jenkins, Kibana, Prometheus, and Grafana.
  • Ability and interest to quickly learn new frameworks, architecture patterns, and programming languages as needed
  • Experience working at a small company with diverse responsibilities is a bonus, but not required.
  • Experience working with API connections with external systems like Jira, ServiceNow, Slack, etc is a bonus, but not required.

Why you should join Zip

Who we are:

From utilizing new SaaS tools to hiring expert consultants, modern companies rely on external vendors more than ever before. Yet companies still rely on legacy ERP systems, some built over a decade ago, to manage spend and compliance. That’s why we started Evergreen (YC S2020), the first modern spend management system. We provide one place for employees to request any purchase and manage approvals across finance, legal, security, procurement, and IT.

We are a small but mighty team that have helped scale category-defining companies like Airbnb, Facebook, Apple, and Salesforce. We’re building a world-class engineering team to create the next generation of enterprise spend management products.
