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 meet these criteria:
You can build scalable web apps. You have at least 4+ years of full-stack software development, building web-based software products.

You have experience or interest in AI. You have built applications using LLM APIs or frameworks for work or for play, such as OpenAI or LangChain. Bonus: you have machine learning domain knowledge.
You optimize for speed of learning. You work well in ambiguity and can take customer feedback to quickly create and iterate on a prototype. You enjoy the freedom to make design and architecture decisions on the fly and can advocate for your decisions.
You have a strong product mindset. You enjoy venturing outside your engineering role and want to understand why decisions are made. You can communicate technical trade-offs and propose solutions that optimize value-shipping speed. You often make proactive recommendations on how the product should work based on customer feedback and are not shy to share your ideas. You love coaching other engineers on developing a product mindset as well.
You are a team player. You know how to advocate for your ideas and enjoy interactions with other engineers and non-engineers alike. You are constantly looking for ways to improve team processes, reduce bugs, and reduce technical debt.

- Competitive: Zapier pays well among the technology sector.

How to Apply
At Zapier, we believe that diverse perspectives and experiences make us better, which is why we have a non-standard application process designed to promote inclusion and equity. We're looking for the best fit for each of our roles, regardless of the type of education or companies in your background, so we encourage you to apply even if your skills and experiences don’t exactly match the job description. All we ask is that you answer a few in-depth questions in our application that would typically be asked at the start of an interview process. This helps speed things up by letting us get to know you and your skillset a bit better right out of the gate. Please be sure to answer each question; the resume and CV fields are optional.
After you apply, you are going to hear back from us—even if we don’t see an immediate fit with our team. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to never go more than seven days without letting you know the status of your application. We know we’ll make mistakes from time to time, so if you ever have questions about where you stand or about the process, just ask your recruiter!
Zapier is an equal-opportunity employer and we're excited to work with talented and empathetic people of all identities. Zapier does not discriminate based on someone's identity in any aspect of hiring or employment as required by law and in line with our commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging and Equity. Our code of conduct provides a beacon for the kind of company we strive to be, and we celebrate our differences because those differences are what allow us to make a product that serves a global user base.
Zapier is committed to inclusion. As part of this commitment, Zapier welcomes applications from individuals with disabilities and will work to provide reasonable accommodations. If reasonable accommodations are needed to participate in the job application or interview process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
