Hi there!


We’re looking for a Platform Support Engineer to help grow our collection of API integrations. If you think APIs will define the future of the web, read on…


We know applying for and taking on a new a 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. Hopefully, 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.


Even though our job description may seem like we’re looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if:


You really care about user experience, are interested in automation and a wide range of SaaS apps and enjoy working closely with developers to help them succeed.


About You



Things You Might Do


Zapier is a startup, so you’ll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you’ll probably do:



If you feel like growing your experience and taking on these responsibilities, this role may be for you. This is a chance to build your expertise in API integrations while working to automate your way through new challenges within a growing team.


You can think of this role as one that needs the knowledge base that an engineer has, but is more focused on working with people. Your experience should include programming, test development and QA, teaching/training, and sales engineering or solution engineering.


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 that credentials don’t say everything. Our CTO has a finance degree. Our CEO has an engineering degree. Our CPO has a mechanical engineering degree. What you love doing is way more important than the credentials you have.


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 100+ 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, New Zealand and Australia. You just have to be talented!


Compensation:



Pick your own equipment. We’ll set you up with whatever mac 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.
