About Rippling

Rippling is the first way for businesses to manage all of their HR & IT—payroll, benefits, computers, apps, and more—in one unified workforce platform.
By connecting every business system to one source of truth for employee data, businesses can automate all of the manual work they normally need to do to make employee changes. Take onboarding, for example. With Rippling, you can just click a button and set up a new employees’ payroll, health insurance, work computer, and third-party apps—like Slack, Zoom, and Office 365—all within 90 seconds.
Based in San Francisco, CA, Rippling has raised $700M from the world’s top investors—including Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, Sequoia, and Bedrock—and was named one of America’s best startup employers by Forbes (#12 out of 500).

About The Role

We’re looking for great Tech Leads to join us as founding leaders of Rippling's hub in Poland (full remote is possible). You'll be laying the technical and organizational foundation for a top tier engineering team.

You'll focus initially on Rippling's Identity Management product, which uses Rippling's HR data to manage employee identity in 400+ cloud services, such as G Suite, Slack, Dropbox, GitHub, AWS, etc. When one of our customers hires an employee, our systems use APIs to automatically provision the employee's accounts in all the cloud services the company uses, and allow the employee to sign in to those services using SAML or OIDC, and use RPass -- Rippling's zero knowledge password manager -- to protect their credentials. We work closely with our integration partners and our business development team to build new integrations, manage our existing partnerships, and most importantly, build an integration ecosystem that is a key long term moat for Rippling's business.

What You'll Do

  • Leading a small team of engineers (~5-10 people)
  • Working together with Engineering Managers and the rest of the Leadership team
  • Hands-on software development. Our current tech stack includes Python, Django, DRF, and MongoDB on top of AWS (Note: you do not need to have experience with all the technologies to apply)
  • Ensure your team ships products constantly at a high quality
  • Plan, review, and participate in product and technical meetings. Perform code reviews, maintain technical documentation, and evolve the Identity Management product for a growing customer base.
  • Have a holistic view across engineering and product, and drive engineering and product strategy
  • Wear any hat when needed

What You’ll Need

  • 6+ years of professional work experience
  • Past experience in a Team/Tech Lead leading a small team of software engineers (at least 2 years of experience)
  • Strong understanding of web applications, including performance, quality, and security aspects
  • Proven track record of taking initiative and leading projects
  • Experience building a large-scale platform for web and mobile apps
  • You care about product ownership and solving problems for our customers.
  • You’re passionate about being in a product-focused environment where everyone cares deeply about customer impact.
  • Fluency in English
