Zendesk is a SaaS B2B company, we serve more than 145,000 paid customer accounts, we operate worldwide and we have all the stuff you’d expect from a tech company - competitive pay, stock, benefits, beautiful office, snacks, and more. We also have a culture deeply dedicated to helping our staff keep a proper work-life balance.
We believe that a Principal Engineer is someone who steers the organization away from disastrous mistakes and enables us to accomplish better and greater things. You break new ground, set long term priorities and coordinate problem solving across multiple teams, with company-wide impact. You level up senior technical staff and provide thought leadership across engineering. You focus on software architecture more than on product delivery.
