Description

Before we dive into the role, let’s talk about flexibility. At Zip, our office is in New York City but we can hire from anywhere across the United States. Our Zipsters can choose where and when they work by taking full advantage of our hybrid-work environment.

So whether you’re fully remote, mostly in the office or a mix of the two, you’ll be empowered to do whatever brings out your best.

We exist to create a world where people can live fearlessly today, knowing they’re in control of tomorrow. Focused on product innovation that puts people at the centre, we put the financial well-being of our customers and merchant partners at the heart of everything that we do.

ENGINEERING @ ZIP

At Zip, we build cloud-native software applications that serve millions of customers and process billions of dollars in payments.
