Staff Fullstack Engineer - HRIS
Based in San Francisco, CA, Rippling has raised $1.2B from the world's top investors-including Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, Sequoia, Bedrock, and Greenoaks-and was named one of America's best startup employers by Forbes (#12 out of 500).
About the team
Rippling is rapidly adding new lines of business to its 20+ products while also expanding globally into many new countries each year.
We are much more than HR - the HRIS group consists of several teams that build products, services, and frameworks that serve both external users and serves as a platform for teams internally at Rippling. This team serves as a platform that unlocks future lines of business and speeds up expansion in ways that directly affect the company’s bottom line.
About the role
The HRIS team builds complex frameworks that power both external applications as well as products that other teams use. The frontend frameworks we have built enable teams to build applications rapidly in a consistent and scalable way. We need a seasoned engineer who has worked with complex front-end systems that will scale.

Acting as a technical leader across all teams within the HRIS group
Upholding a high bar by participating in technical discussions, providing feedback on specs, and making recommendations
Shipping and owning high-impact products end-to-end with high quality
Proposing, leading, and rolling out technical initiatives that align the team with industry best practices for code quality, observability, and testing. You may find yourself leading a weekly meeting around how to improve the health of our services.
Deploying great technical judgment because this is not your first rodeo.
Taking ambiguous technical problem statements and turning them into an actionable plan, and then executing it with the team
Modeling and executing against requirements involving complex and interdependent systems related to employment rules, country-specific requirements, international currencies, and more
Crafting a technical vision for a team whose goals are to unlock business outcomes by making it easier to work with HRIS data/entities
In addition to the execution of projects, you will communicate with leaders of other teams on our engineering strategy to ensure that the products being built are truly elevating the organization and enabling us to move the business forward.
7+ years of professional experience as a software engineer
Experience in both backend and frontend engineering
You have seen systems operating at a significant technical and organizational scale
Experience working in a fast-paced, dynamic environment
React experience preferred
Comfortable at developing scalable and extendable core services used in many products
