We’re looking for a Support Systems Engineer to join the Support Operations team at Zapier. Zapier’s on a mission to make everyone more productive at work. Zapier has helped over 1.8 million individuals and businesses with their automation needs.
As a Support Systems Engineer, you’ll build tools and systems that empower your teammates to provide an excellent support experience to Zapier’s customers. You’ll work with partners throughout the company and design, build, ship, and maintain the tools, systems, and apps that enable our Support organization to act nimbly and with confidence.
Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.
Even though our job description may seem like we’re looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if you meet these criteria:
You’re an excellent written communicator. We’re a 100% remote team, and writing is our primary means of communication at Zapier. We thrive on asynchronous communication, so keeping your teammates and stakeholders up-to-date and on the same page is essential.
You love to learn new things. Zapier’s Support org is very nimble and dynamic. In order to give them the best tools possible, our team must always be learning about new tools, APIs, and integrations. If you love to spend time digging into new frameworks, workflows, and languages, you’ll feel right at home here.
You’re creative and resourceful. You approach ambiguous challenges with confidence, diligence, and a willingness to experiment and try new things.
You care about taking care of customers — and taking care of the people who care for them, too. Our Support team is full of brilliant, enthusiastic, and warm folks who work really hard to ensure the support experience we provide our customers is always improving and adapting to their changing needs and our growing company. For our team, success happens when we accelerate, solidify, and empower our Support colleagues’ work while also removing as many headaches and roadblocks as possible.
You’re solid at time management. You’ll juggle a variety of projects at any given time, and as a part of a distributed team, you’ll be trusted to work with minimal supervision. As a part of a growing company, you have an opportunity to make a big impact, and you’re keen to build processes that’ll make your job more efficient over time.

- Develop and maintain tools, apps, and systems that empower our team to provide an excellent support experience to our customers
- Help develop code standards and best practices within the Support Systems Engineering team through frequent code reviews, sharing knowledge, and documenting how we work best
- Monitor our tools and services for reliability and respond to bugs and feature requests from our Support colleagues

- Refine and optimize how we work by participating in sprint planning, backlog grooming, and retrospective sessions
- Mentor aspiring engineers and first-time developers from throughout the company on technical and collaborative skills
- As a part of our All Hands Support initiative, help customers have the best possible experience with Zapier
Zapier helps people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.
We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing. We believe that with the right tools, you can have big impact with less hassle. We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.
We believe in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.
