Welcome to Web. This team is responsible for the face and functionality of Zendesk.com. We’re a family of weirdly wonderful full stack web developers that work closely with designers, marketers, product engineers, and analysts. We focus on new customers and function as a little think tank that researches, develops, and improves new customer flows. We’re looking for a talented dev to work across the primary brand site (zendesk.com), and the 20+ international sites serving markets across the globe.
This position requires a “maker” mindset. You should be comfortable building pages to spec quickly and cleanly but you should also be able to run a web project from start to finish. You should have the eyes of a designer, the voice of a director, and the analytical mind of an engineer.
Attributes we’re looking for:
The humble team player: You may be an amazingly brilliant coding "rockstar" from the Kingdom of I-don't-care-about-anybody-but-me, but guess what? You're just a smelly human. Once you start to believe that you know everything, you'll stop allowing yourself to learn from others. Don't be that person. We can't stand that person.
The prankster: Besides delivering great work, we rarely take anything seriously.. especially ourselves. This enables us to remain stress free despite any tight deadlines that we may face.
Mz. or Mr. Honesty: We're pretty direct with one another. We keep each other humble (see humility definition above) and joke around a bunch (see humor definition above) but we also ensure that we keep the conversation honest and open so that when something looks off or is headed in the wrong direction you won't hesitate to speak up.
The unshakable optimist: Failing is part of growing and experimenting. Push the boundaries and you may fall flat on your face. But if you can't see the rainbows through the failure foliage, you'll struggle much more than you need to.
The communicator: "Ur code sux." That phrase is not helpful, 'nuff said.
