We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. Hopefully, you’ll take the leap of faith and apply.
Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.
We encourage you to apply if you meet these criteria:
You’re an experienced email marketer. You’ve been building and coding emails for 3+ years and are comfortable using HTML/CSS to build an email from scratch. This isn’t the first time you’ve worked with an ESP, CRM, or marketing automation platform to create complex lifecycle programs. (at Zapier, we use Iterable.)
Relationships with subscribers matter. Email subscribers are more than inboxes to send to, they’re people who you want to help build a strong relationship with Zapier. You think about how every email you send provides value to the reader and helps them succeed.
Have an exceptional eye for detail. You recognize that emails are unforgiving and a small error or typo can’t be fixed once you push send. Small things like the copy on a button can improve a user’s experience and result in better engagement.
You’re a scientist at heart. Email effectiveness can ebb and flow and you’re not afraid to experiment with new ideas to achieve higher engagement. When you need to make a decision, you rely on data and back up your work with numbers, not just anecdotal evidence.
Well-written copy brings a smile to your face. You aim to help readers reach their goal with clear and concise copy, not perplexing prose.
You have an eye for design. You may not spend your days designing interfaces, graphics, or other assets, but you know when you look at elements of an email if there are changes that could improve the reader’s experience.
Process makes perfect. You’ll juggle a variety of fast-moving email projects. Email can make a big impact on user experience and our business metrics, and you’re keen to build processes that you and your team more effective over time.
You pride yourself on organization. Email onboarding flows, sending schedules, product copy style guides, and user journey maps—these items are music to your ears.
Email is something you geek out on. You love talking about new ways to build emails, performance metrics, and debating whether or not the fold exists in email. You also stay on top of email trends, best practices, and strategies.
Things You’ll Do
For the past seven years, Zapier has been helping 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 acode of conduct.
