    About the Engineering Team

    Our team is passionate about working together to solve interesting problems with technical solutions--and having fun doing it. With a team split between Austin and Africa, we know from experience the importance of diversity within Engineering teams, and we work constantly to ensure everyone has a voice and feels valued. Collaboration is key to our success. When we're not working you can find us on a trip to find lunch at a nearby food truck, or playing ping pong in the break room.

    How We Interview & Hire

    Our process begins with a 30 minute phone screen. We'll ask a few questions to help us understand your experience and what motivates you, as well as give you a glimpse into what The Zebra is all about. From there, depending on the position, there may be a take-home coding challenge, followed by an in-person interview with a couple of our Engineers. We do our best to be transparent and respond quickly to ensure the entire process is a good experience for all involved!
