About Devzero

Devzero is changing how software is built. We are maximizing the time developers spend doing what they do best - writing new code. We’ve done that by building internal tools at companies like Uber and now we want to make it available for every developer and engineering team out there.

Devzero is a fast growing startup backed by tier-1 investors.

About The Role

We're looking for a Solution Engineer to join the team and help more developers and DevOps be more productive.

We take a different approach to sales than other companies. We like our engineers to be hands-on and learn by doing.
