Zappi is a fast-growing SaaS platform helping Fortune 500 companies pre-test new ideas and creative content before production. From new products, media campaigns, names, logos, packaging, or flavors, Zappi allows companies to shelve bad ideas and improve on good ones. We bring together top expertise in applied statistics, data science, visualization, UX, and engineering to create a platform that allows non-expert users to make high-stakes decisions easily and confidently. We believe it’s possible to run a profitable business while also having a positive impact on the environment and our communities
What we value
We believe in hiring people that want a chance to do their best work. We believe driven engineers operate best in high-trust, small, cross-functional teams who work together with the rest of the business to bring value to our customers.
We believe great engineering happens in great teams that value improvement, curiosity, and continuous learning. We align as a business on the challenges we need to solve and trust teams to solve them in the best possible way.
We value experimentation, failing fast, and being bold. We practice continuous delivery and fast iteration. We hate politics, gate-keeping, unfairness, and toxic behavior. We believe in transparency, even when it’s unflattering. We believe in honesty, even when it’s uncomfortable. We treat failure as a learning opportunity. We believe in ethical and responsible business practices and having a positive impact on the environment and our communities.
What you will be working on
The MeasureStore team is changing the way we look at and think about our data. As a new, integral part of the Zappi ecosystem, we will be taking the MeasureStore from PoC to production-ready to deliver a high-performance, highly available data store.
The team is going to be remote-first, with most of the team members based in London at this point. We will be working in a high-performing team environment, with a focus on quality and speed of development.

You will be helping us design and build the platform from the ground up, where we will be able to select the best language and technologies for the job. The system will need to handle traffic 24/7, operate with extreme data integrity, and requires no-downtime deployments. The key challenges that we will face surround the implementation of a graph database that can query data in a matter of milliseconds, building a system that is highly available and able to scale according to demand, as well as integrating this with other applications.
The ideal candidate is self-motivating, passionate about designing and building high-quality systems, willing to adapt to new languages and learn new technologies to solve difficult problems, has experience working with highly available systems, and can work in a data-driven and continuously improving environment.
The team and engineering function practices continuous integration and deploys to production multiple times per day, on an auto-scaling Kubernetes cluster running on AWS.
You will need to be able to demonstrate the characteristics of a senior/experienced engineer (this is generally more than 4 years of experience)
You can demonstrate how you add value to a team as a senior engineer, and what you expect from a high performing team
You have transferable technical experience. We don’t need deep expertise in our tech stack if you can demonstrate your ability to learn new technologies
You have the right to work in the location advertised or in any of our supported remote working countries
Competitive pay scales that are benchmarked annually – this is not something we just say in job descriptions. You shouldn’t have to leave to earn what you’re worth
Tailored personal development through training allowances (for courses, conferences, etc), coaching, mentorship, and career frameworks
Unlimited holidays – we encourage people to take plenty of leave
Flexible working arrangements, including remote (unless otherwise specified)
Thoughtfully designed offices to support both individual work and collaboration without interrupting others
Generous hardware budget – get what works for you
Support setting up your home office, if appropriate (chair + desk, etc)
Wellbeing benefits such as free yoga and access to trained therapists/counselors
24hour secure parking
