Zappistore Limited designs and develops software solutions. The Company provides a platform that offers market research and consumer insights to help clients in their decision making process. Zappistore serves customers worldwide.
Zappi is a fast growing SaaS platform helping Fortune 500 companies pre-test new ideas and creative content before production. From new products, media campaigns, names, logos, packaging or flavours, Zappi allows companies to shelve bad ideas and improve on good ones. We bring together top expertise in applied statistics, data science, visualization, UX and engineering to create a platform that allows non-expert users to make high-stakes decisions easily and confidently. We believe it’s possible to run a profitable business while also having a positive impact on the environment and our communities
We believe in hiring people that want a chance to do their best work. We believe driven engineers operate best in high-trust, small, cross-functional teams who work together with the rest of the business to bring value to our customers.
We believe great engineering happens in great teams that value improvement, curiosity and continuous learning. We align as a business on the challenges we need to solve and trust teams solve them in the best possible way.
We value experimentation, failing fast and being bold. We practice continuous delivery and fast iteration. We hate politics, gate-keeping, unfairness and toxic behaviour. We believe in transparency, even when it’s unflattering. We believe in honesty, even when it’s uncomfortable. We treat failure as a learning opportunity. We believe in ethical and responsible business practices and having a positive impact on the environment and our communities.
The API & Integrations team is a new and growing team that owns our public-facing API. This team is responsible for evolving our API offering and building out integrations between Zappi and various third-party platforms that our customers use.
The mandate of this team is to ensure that our customers can make the most of their data programmatically, by designing and developing well-thought-out developer-facing systems that are reliable, performant and scalable. The core of the API is built with Elixir and the Phoenix web framework, with interfaces across multiple Ruby on Rails applications.
The team is first team to use Elixir at Zappi and part of an experiment in expanding new services outside of Ruby. The team will work closely with other teams at Zappi as we expand the capabilities of the system. The API will be used by engineering teams at household-name customers. You will work in an engineering function that practices continuous integration and deploys to production multiple times per day on an auto-scaling Kubernetes cluster running on AWS.
Zappi is an equal opportunities employer; our diversity is a major strength. We maintain a constant dialogue with our teams and wider communities about how we can become a more inclusive place to work.
