Rails Engineer who cares about people

Retail Zipline via Stack Overflow
Development

Columbia, CA

Nov 16th 2018


Retailers use archaic, old systems that don't work (think fax machines and voicemails). We're replacing the core operational processes with a modern platform that our customers love. Help us transform a $4.4 trillion industry and improve the way millions of people work. Major retailers like Gap, Nike, LEGO, and Old Navy are already using Zipline every day, but there is so much more to do!

We care deeply about our customer and work hard to make sure that they feel very supported when working with us. So far, we've been told we provide "Disney-like" service, and we're proud to keep that going. We are looking for another experienced Rails Engineer to join our team and focus on making sure our customers have an amazing experience.

  • Revisiting our in-app training to deliver a great first time experience
