View Profile

At Zipmark we value collaboration and flexibility - encouraging our engineers to move out of their comfort zones, develop new skills, and learn from each other. That mindset allows the team to take on the challenges that arise as we realize Zipmark's product goals.

Our challenge

At Zipmark we are building the 21st Century Checkbook. Our challenges include building a stable, high performance transaction platform, exposing its services via a clean, flexible REST API, and using that API to power mobile and web applications that provide Zipmark users with a great user experience.

Your impact

As part of the Zipmark Engineering team you will see your impact on the success of the business every day. You'll work with the rest of the business to decide what's important. You'll move quickly to react to opportunities. While your individual strengths will be valued, we also value sharing our knowledge, encouraging others to broaden their skills, and strengthening the team as a whole.


Honest Agility

At Zipmark we drive our development priorities through regular, open discussion of our customers' needs and those of the business opportunities that present themselves to the company. When we work on something we know why it's important to the business. We comfortably use simple Git branching practices to allow us to switch context and respond to elevated priorities. We also rely heavily on GitHub pull requests to manage change at the feature level and ensure that new code is reviewed before it has an impact on our products.
