If you have none, or it has been a long time since you worked in Python, you can still apply, but know you’ll be ranked against candidates with current experience.\n\nAbout You\n\nYou love building new things. Your work could be on our workflow engine, the editor that our customers use to build their Zaps, our platform where partners build their integrations, or any number of areas in between. You'll have a primary focus on backend development in Python, though may need to jump into the frontend from time to time. Zapier is built on Django, React, node.js and AWS. We use modern tools, which means you’ll have the opportunity to work with software like Memcached, RabbitMQ, Zookeeper, Docker, Redis, Jenkins, Puppet, Ansible and much more.\n\nYou have worked with teams before on large Python projects.You’re also familiar with frameworks like Django and React You understand how to design systems in a distributed manner across hundreds (and even thousands) of servers - we handle 100s of millions of API calls every week and are growing fast.\n\nYou love shipping to customers. Your engineering projects will focus on understanding customers' needs and translating those needs from product specifications into functional, production ready code. You'll have the opportunity to ship code daily that will be used by millions of people.\n\nYou love doing things efficiently. At Zapier, we believe in “Don't be a Robot, Build the Robot.” We build systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves.\n\nYou love learning. Engineering is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet.\n\nYou love to set your own course. You will have a team meeting and a one-on-one meeting every week where you can help direct the course of your projects. You'll have a direct impact on what we work on next.\n\nThings You Might Do\n\nZapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:\n\n\n* Help scale a fast-growing and unique system - our workflow engine connects with thousands of APIs across thousands of servers\n\n* Plan and build product features - directly impact how our customers can be more productive\n\n* Improve our developer platform - directly impact the way partner devs add their apps to Zapier\n\n* Ship code to millions of users every week\n\n* Work with hundreds of different API integrations\n\n* Give back to the community via open source and blog posts\n\n* Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change\n\n\n\n\nAs a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.\n\nYou’ll also have the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas of the Zapier codebase, including core product or platform development. Focusing on a specialization will not limit your area for growth at Zapier as each engineer brings a unique perspective and can contribute differently in all areas. We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects.
