You’ll be someone who has a strong sense of ownership: You build it, you test it, you run it, you deploy it, and you support it. If you have experience trying things in different ways, share with your team - we love finding new ways to do things! #changethegame.

We are moving fast so be sure your work will rapidly find its way to production! We want to empower you with a strong sense of ownership #ownit.

Zipsters work on a broad range of initiatives, and our skills and experiences all look a little different. What really matters to us is that you’re a great fit with our four Values, and have a desire to learn and grow.

  • React and Next.js! We love both Server Side Rendering and React Server Components.

  • Playwright or other e2e testing frameworks. You know - everything should be tested. We need it, we love it, it's a must have.

  • Able to work with non-technical stakeholders, such as PM, Designers, and Marketing.
  • Our values in your DNA: Customer First, Own It, Stronger Together and Change the Game.
