About Rippling
Rippling gives businesses one place to run HR, IT, and Finance. It brings together all of the workforce systems that are normally scattered across a company, like payroll, expenses, benefits, and computers. For the first time ever, you can manage and automate every part of the employee lifecycle in a single system.
Take onboarding, for example. With Rippling, you can hire a new employee anywhere in the world and set up their payroll, corporate card, computer, benefits, and even third-party apps like Slack and Microsoft 365—all within 90 seconds.
Based in San Francisco, CA, Rippling has raised $1.2B from the world’s top investors—including Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, Sequoia, Greenoaks, and Bedrock—and was named one of America's best startup employers by Forbes (#12 out of 500).
About the role

Our products include reporting, dashboards, data analytics, etc. which help customers view, understand and use their data to make informed business decisions.

This engineering role will be responsible for building the foundation that powers the Analytics platform at Rippling. You will be responsible for leading large-scale cross-org projects that touch many parts of the stack and have implications both on the long term of the engineering org as well as the business. There are challenges for the team to build for scalability to massive scale, and to platformize our products with a unified and consistent experience.

This is a unique opportunity to work on both product and platform layers at the same time. We obsess over the scalability and extensibility of platform solutions, ensuring that solutions will meet the needs across the breadth of Rippling's product suite, along with the applications of tomorrow. The Analytics Platform is a highly visible team that collaborates closely with many product and engineering teams across the organization.

  • Continuously raise our standard of engineering excellence by implementing and driving best practices for coding, testing, and deployment

  • Interact with customers and support them in being successful with Rippling

  • Influence technology selections and trends of the whole company

  • 7+ years of software engineering experience, with 4+ years in technical lead or architect roles
