Help the world keep today on track. If you’re passionate about finding ways to make complicated days more doable for retail workers, we’d love to hear from you. Because here at Zipline, we’re all about finding easily executable ways to bring new retail strategies and ideas to life in stores. We believe that every task matters, every voice should be heard, and every job is important. If you share these values, your career track might bring you here.

At Zipline, we’re helping put technology into the hands of those that need it most – – retail workers. If you have worked in a store, you know the drill. You’re helping customers, ringing up orders, and trying to do the 30 tasks that HQ wants you to do. Some pertain to you. Some don’t. But that’s for you to figure out all while putting out fires and keeping shelves tidy.

That’s where we come in! We turn the grind of retail communications into an engaging, effective, aha solution. The Zipline platform ensures that the right people get the right information in the right way. Everyone is on the same page, tasks are tracked and life feels less like a perpetual game of hair-on-fire.

We love helping retailer workers love their jobs because we know how much better life is when you love your work. Zipline itself is Great Place to Work-Certified. 97 percent of our employees say Zipline is a great place to work, compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company. What’s even more impressive is that 100% of employees say, I can be myself around here, I am treated as a full member here regardless of my position and People here are willing to give extra to get the job done. 100 percent! You can’t beat the Zipline culture.
