Careers at Zapier

"We're a 100% distributed team living and working all over the world to help you automate the most tedious parts of your day to day job."

Zapier is an automation tool that connects your favorite web apps, such as Gmail, Slack, MailChimp, and over 750 more. With Zapier-powered app integrations, you can move info between your apps automatically so you can focus on your best work. (By the way, Zapier rhymes with happier.)

The Zapier team of (currently) 80 people are spread across 13 countries. Zapier CEO and co-founder Wade Foster explains why the company chose to be completely distributed, without any headquarters:

It's a better way to work. It allows us to hire smart people no matter where in the world, and it gives those people hours back in their day to spend with friends and family. We save money on office space and all the hassles that comes with that. A lot of people are more productive in remote setting, though it does require some more discipline too.

Zapier employees keep connected on a daily basis with Slack for group chat, Google Docs and Hackpad for documentation, Trello for project management, Zoom for video conferencing, and an internal blog for team updates (what we use in place of team emails).

Job benefits include flexible work hours, unlimited vacation days, 4% company retirement match, profit sharing, generous health coverage, and 2-3 fully-paid retreats. (Most recently, the team got together in Boerne, TX.

Wade says, however, that the most interesting retreat so far was to Timber Moose Lodge in Herber City, UT–the largest private log cabin in the US, "eccentric, maze-like, and amazing.")
