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 $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)

Are you looking to be in a role where you can have a significant impact on the company’s growth and success?

Does the prospect of making the most pragmatic technical and business decisions, both of which will drastically shape the future of the business excite you?

Are you someone who takes immense pride in building excellent products for customers that are technically designed for scalability and extensibility, and just work all the time?

Are you excited about leading high performance teams, and rallying them towards a technical vision that drives the company’s success?

If you answered yes to these, come join us!

Every year, employers and employees spend over $5 trillion on benefits globally. From health insurance to saving for retirement, these benefits products guide families through some of the most important and impactful decisions in life.

Despite the significance of these products and the dollars spent, the experience is still painfully antiquated, expensive, and confusing.

Rippling is building the first modern multi-sided marketplace that seamlessly connects brokers, employers, and employees with any benefit. Our platform powers the discovery, purchase, and use of benefits products around the world. Our benefits vertical includes our Benefits Platform (recommendations, payments, and our benefits eligibility engine), our rapidly growing Benefits Marketplace of over 100 partners, and our natively-built Rippling Benefits Products.
