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).

About The Role

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 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. 

What You'll Do: 

  • Contribute to the global expansion of the Insurance product, working in tandem with different third party systems and building a unified system supporting multiple countries.

  • Collaborate cross-functionally with designers, PMs, and fellow engineers to plan features to help bring a high quality product to market

  • Be part of our Frontend Architecture Team and help 70+ frontend engineers boosting their development cycle.

  • Translate wireframes into functional requirements, write well-abstracted, reusable, high-performance code for UI components.

  • Suggest continuous improvements in user interface, software architecture or new technologies.


  • 8+ years experience in front end engineering roles. We use React, TypeScript and JavaScript on the front end.

  • Strong understanding of JS fundamentals.

  • Understanding of design patterns in JavaScript and knowledge of front end performance optimization techniques

  •  Knowledge in BFF and GraphQL would be an added advantage.

  • Good understanding with build tools and web performance.
