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 product team owns Rippling’s product direction, defining what to build in order to solve customer problems in a way that allows them to succeed.

In this role, you will extend our platform capabilities to support global workforces. Rippling's platform facilitates a completely localized, locally-compliant product. You will work closely with the engineering, design, and localization team to build global platform products, leveraging the partnership of external localization vendors.
