At Grow Remote, we advertise remote jobs locally through a jobs board built by a community member, John Brett. By remote jobs, we mean decent employment that’s available anywhere. The benefit of remote companies is that they hire without local boundaries. The downside is that a company hiring across an EU timezone can not feasibly advertise in every community who can access those roles.
Getting to know remote companies is a big part of building a remote ready workforce, and ensuring everyone has choice in where they work. Today, we take a snapshot of working remotely at Zapier, one of the front runners in remote work.
Zapier is a tool that helps you automate repetitive tasks between two or more apps—no code necessary. They employ over 250 people who help out their 1million+ customers. Hear directly from their CEO Wade Foster here:
Zapier hire for all roles without a specific location, although they are sometimes limited to timezones. This means that remote jobs come up accounts, customer care, sales and all other parts of the business from entry level up.
It can sometimes be hard to differentiate the quality of a remote company. For our community, using Glassdoor has proved really useful as it gives anonymous staff feedback. In this case, Zapier has glowing employee experiences reaching 4.7/5 overall. There is a point of caution that would apply similarly to all remote jobs:
“The only thing I would say is remote work takes time to adjust especially if you’re used to working in an office or an extrovert” (in 8 reviews)Zapier Glassdoor Reviews
It is important to note that some benefits for Zapier employees are still only available to employees in the US & UK. While this used to be common place, this is rapidly changing with thanks to the likes of remote.com, Boundless and Deel who help remote employers employ compliantly everywhere.
