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.
About the role

The Time Products team makes Rippling work for companies with hourly workforces. We own a suite of products that our customers use every day to manage, schedule, and pay their hourly employees while remaining compliant with a complex web of relevant regulations.

Writing and reviewing code goes without saying, but at Rippling, engineers do a lot more than just engineering. You’ll quickly become an expert on the product area and spend time talking to users, planning our product roadmap, and working on go-to-market initiatives. As an early member on a new team, you’ll also play a major role in shaping the team’s culture and organization to help us scale.

  • Develop high quality software with attention to detail
  • Ship incrementally and continually at high velocity

  • Experience building and scaling products and systems from the ground up
  • Strong product intuition: you care about design and user experience and are quick to identify how these could be improved.
