Overview

About Zippity

Zippity helps scrappy small business owners join the modern, digital economy. Specifically, Zippity builds software for mobile service businesses (mobile detailers, mobile dog groomers, mobile computer repair, etc…) with an all-in-one platform that solves their biggest headache: scheduling. We enable them to take online, self-scheduled bookings via our scheduling tools that factor in drive time, helping them manage all of their appointments easily and without the help of back-office staff. The entire platform can be run from our mobile app which also helps them manage all other day-to-day operations including real-time customer communications. Small business owners can focus on providing outstanding customer service, and we’ll take care of the rest.

We are looking for a Senior Software Developer to join our small, close-knit team as we navigate this rapid growth.

About the Role

As an early Senior Software Developer, you will have significant ownership over the product and the success of the technology team. You will help to define what to build and how to build it, while providing support to our junior developers. You will work across our front-end and back-end code bases.

Responsibilities

  • Write clean and maintainable code: Be the lead developer on large feature implementations. Work closely with Product and Engineering teams to build beautiful products that align with the needs of our customers. Work to ensure code is scalable and easy to maintain as we grow.
  • Provide technical leadership and direction: Create technical design plans for current and upcoming features. During implementation, work closely with developers to make design decisions that are scalable and efficient. Propose new technologies, frameworks, and methodologies to best support the team and the product.
  • Act as a domain expert: Deepen your understanding of our tech stack, which includes React, React Native, and Python. Work closely with the team of five developers to provide support and unblock them when questions or issues arise.
  • Collaborate and Contribute: Collaborate effectively within the Engineering team and with other teams across Zippity. Contribute to a culture of excellence, inclusion, collaboration, and customer focus.

About You

  • You have experience. You know how to build great software and have in-depth experience building modern web and mobile products. You are excited about building scalable systems, creating clean infrastructure to support our growth. You are eager to teach your teammates new skills and to learn alongside them.
  • You’re a great communicator. You recognize that coding is not just communicating with machines, but communicating with other humans via machines. At Zippity, you will be asked to synthesize customer feedback, make smart informed decisions, and build consensus with your teammates.
  • You’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit. You don’t get excited about 10% Year-over-Year growth – you get excited about turning the world upside-down and growing by 100x. Maybe you’ve worked in a startup before. Maybe you were part of a large company but tried to make it feel like a startup. No matter your background, you are excited to be part of a small team that dreams big.
  • You feel personally invested in delivering a great UX. You put yourself in your customer’s shoes, and relentlessly optimize the user experience. You appreciate good design.

About Us

  • Our team is collaborative, ambitious, and friendly. We’re excited to be working toward a common goal: helping small businesses modernize how they do business.
  • We are a distributed team. We started in the greater Boston area, but we have grown to have employees in 7 different states. We collaborate online with Zoom/Slack, and we find creative ways to bring people together in-person a few times a year.
