Talent

We’re proud of our work we’re able to accomplish, and much of the credit goes to our amazing and unique culture.

Want to be a ZURBian?

Hi friend! We’re super excited that you’re taking the steps toward your next big adventure. If this is the first time we’ve met then nice to meet you! And if you’ve been admiring us from afar, then we’re flattered. Either way we’re glad you’re here.

ZURB is about people and we want the best for our team, our customers, and our friends. Our mission is about helping people create connected products and services, we’re making that happen! You’ll want to work with us because you want to make a difference and solve problems that seem impossible or are unknown. The skills you have are important because we elevate each other. We’re looking for individuals who push themselves and inspire those around them. It’s amazing to have that kind of peer support. Being a ZURBian doesn’t mean you are just an engineer, just a designer or just a marketer. Everyone at ZURB gets to influence outcomes — that’s what being “T-shaped” is all about!

Let’s get to know each other a little better

We’re not going to sugar coat it. At ZURB we move fast and sometimes that can come off as intimidating. ZURBians are determined and are always learning, whether from a failure or a new skill. We don’t “just do work.” The work that we do matters to the people we help. In all cases their success depends on our collaborations. We change lives. Plus, creating impactful experiences for users feels pretty awesome too. We get pumped when we learn new techniques, trends and when everyone is set to beast mode amazing things start to happen! Plus, we love giving high-fives!

And we keep it real. ZURBians aren’t born this way — we’re a learning company. Learning isn’t easy and anything worth doing shouldn’t be. We will make mistakes, drop the ball and fail. But that’s how we learn, being “safe” with our thinking is risky. Sometimes we’ll need to put the time into trying a bunch of things that don’t work because we don’t have the knowledge. We’re exploring new worlds.

Becoming a ZURBian

Light speed is so 1987. At ZURB we move at Ludicrous Speed. We don’t believe in an eight-week interview processes, even when it comes to how we meet you. We’ll have a conversation first and get to know each other better. If you’re the right person we won’t keep you waiting.

We want you to have the chops and want you to be a member of our team. You’ll make decisions with us and help us influence the world — not just anyone can do that.

We haven’t scared you off yet? Awesome! Still as excited as we are about ZURB and want to join our team for world domination? (If you answered YES then *insert internet high five here*) You’re one click away from becoming our next ZURBian.

Open Positions

While we’d love if you picked us up some coffee (Philz preferably), we don’t feel those types of mindless tasks will help either of us accomplish our goals. So unlike most companies, we’ll put you directly into the fray, designing and coding up real pages, tools and products that will be seen by thousands of people. But don’t let that that scare you, our entire team will be there to help guide you, offer insights, and get you over any bumps in the road. The result will be something you can be proud of that demonstrates your awesomeness and you’ll be able to use to open up new doors of opportunity. Think you have what it takes?

  • Senior Engineer

    About the position

    You love web application development and you enjoy seeing businesses grow. You've been in the business for a few years now. You’ve done the whole startup thing and you're ready to find something a little more meaty. Working as one of many developers isn't appealing to you anymore and the commute to San Francisco isn't doing it for you either. You're ready to be part of a team, and you want to own the product vision. You love making great things used by people, not just creating code, but contributing and leading projects to success.  

    Helio has shown 20%  quarter over quarter sales growth, and we need a senior engineer to shape and grow our Helio platform. Specifically we’re looking for a full stack engineer (Front-end -> Ruby on Rails -> Networking/AWS) who wants to own the vision.  We're looking for a driven individual to push development forward, work with our active and passionate customers, and take Helio to the next level.


    Who we are

    We're a team of driven product designers who believe in rapid prototyping, researching on the fly and teaching people how to make better products. We've been around since 1998, creating world-class products that hundreds of millions of people actually use. We believe Design, with a capital "D", can change the world, and we’re making it happen. You’ll have the opportunity to build better products that solve problems and meet our customers needs.

    We want to change the way people create products and services to bring behavioral data into everyday creative decisions.


    What Your Day Will Look Like

    Working closely with the team, you’ll spend time planning and developing on the roadmap. Some days you’ll be working on a new feature. Other days you will be deep into code, addressing architecture or fixing a tricky bug. All the while, working with the team to galvanize the momentum we’ve created with our customers. 

    You’ll work with our awesome team to learn Progressive Design — ZURB’s flagship design process — and how it applies to Helio. At the end of the day, you'll find that you are more than just a developer, you’re working with a world-class design organization, helping millions of people design for people and making a difference in the product community -- and that's pretty awesome.


    What You Bring To The Table

    • 5-10 years of development experience working in a startup, independent contractor, or similar environment.

    • Should be comfortable in the full stack (Front-end -> Ruby on Rails -> Networking/AWS). You’ll need a solid grasp of Ruby on Rails.

    • Very comfortable with SQL (We use PostgreSQL and MySQL).

    • Very comfortable with at least one modern front-end framework (React, VueJS, Angular). We use VueJS and AngularJS as well as Stimulus.

    • Should be familiar with common software design patterns (observer pattern, facade pattern) .

    • Should be familiar with server security updates, Ruby security patches, and support third party audits.

    • Familiarity with AWS (EC2/RDS/VPC/IAM/etc).

    • Familiarity with video encoding and prototyping tools.

    • Familiarity with CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Deploy), we use CircleCI.

    • Familiarity with generating financial reports, participant payouts and dealing with GDPR requests for removal.


    Other skills we’re looking for

    • Natural sense of curiosity, and maintains a strong point of view. You enjoy sharing your ideas and listening to the ideas of your teammates. You write well.

    • Experience delivering solid products over and over again.

    • An enthusiasm for coaching and teaching people on our team.
