We are the best in the world in our fields: scraping, parsing, and testing. We share a passion for bringing order to the proxy chaos and HTML mess. We love providing a no-brainer, carefully crafted, and resilient API on the most difficult to scrape search engines.

SerpApi is the leading solution to integrate search data into web applications. Our API scrapes search engines, solves CAPTCHAs, and keeps up with changing page layouts in one simple GET request. Our customers include Apple, Shopify, Airbnb, GrubHub, and more.

We are looking for a Junior Fullstack Engineer. As a Junior Fullstack Engineer, you will design, maintain, fix, deploy, and monitor SerpApi's APIs, features, and documentation. Our current stack is Ruby, Rails, MongoDB, and JavaScript. We deploy on Linux servers on DigitalOcean.

Responsibilities
  • Design APIs, solutions, and features to incorporate into SerpApi
  • Nerd out on specific issues and become an expert on these issues
  • Publish straightforward, polished, and well-thought-out code
  • Conduct PR code reviews and help out other engineers
  • Help troubleshoot issues reported by customers
  • Prioritize our own issues, both on our private and public roadmaps
  • Test solutions thoroughly and fix any problems encountered before deployment to production
  • Write blog posts addressing interesting issues, promoting APIs, and technical solutions to complex problems
  • Experience in Ruby, Javascript, Proxies, CAPTCHA solving, scraping, and/or Browser tech is a plus

Perks


SerpApi has been created by engineers for engineers. High compensation, transparency, remote-first, and a high trust environment are at the core of the company.

All of these also make a very neurodivergent-friendly work environment. Several of our team members, including our CEO, are on the spectrum. Having a neurodivergent-friendly company is not an afterthought.

High Compensation

We offer high compensation, bonuses, and career opportunities all across the globe.
  • Competitive Worldwide
    We pay around 20% more than local averages for all positions, including in the United States.
  • Profit Shares
    All full-time team members receive profit share bonuses. We believe it's important to achieve alignment as a team.
  • Career Growth
    Internal career paths, training (courses, conferences, books), and toolings (up to 50% reimbursement for software, hardware, subscriptions, and co-working space).

Transparency

A transparent world is a better world. Transparent organizations are more meaningful, connected to reality, and trustworthy.
  • Open Books
    We share our books with all team members. We publish quarterly and annual reports (P&L, expenses).
  • Public Roadmap
    Excluding security and confidential issues, all of our work is fully accessible to the public.
  • Internal Trust
    Internally, we share analytics, customer interactions, hiring processes, strategies, marketing, and all other business-related data.


Remote-First Company
Remote is not a 2nd thought, but is core to SerpApi. All our processes are structured around being remote-first.
  • Even Before COVID
    Remote-first wasn't a reaction to COVID, but was a conscious, long-term, and permanent decision.
  • Async Communications
    All of our important communications are async, written, and online. We avoid unnecessary meetings as much as possible.
  • 100% Online
    We use the best tools for the job: GitHub, Slack, Pop, Zoom, Intercom, Figma, and emails.

High-Trust Environment
We put high-trust in everyone on our team and empower them to do their best work.
  • Flexible Schedule
    Team members can adjust their own schedule, timezone, and unpaid vacation time the way they see fit.
  • Independent Prioritization
    Outside of specifically assigned tasks, you can choose what work you think will produce the most value to SerpApi.
  • Trusted Contributions
    All team members can suggest or directly make changes to anything related or not related to their jobs following their own judgment.
