Senior Backend Engineer - NodeJS, Serverless
At Zelt, we're building the operating system for the modern company.
As the first end-to-end backoffice platform designed for the modern company, Zelt enables startups and SMEs to unlock the value of automation technology for their business. With Zelt, you can manage people and IT in a single place: run payroll, assign pension and benefits, give access to apps and systems, configure laptops remotely, and more. And for anything you cannot do in Zelt we have built connectors to your other apps, systems and devices, so you can be in control of your entire stack via one central hub and automate recurring processes with a few clicks.
The problem: siloed software slows down and confuses employees.
The average tech company operates a highly fragmented stack of over 150 different systems and applications. As a result, running internal processes requires a lot of manual admin, and employees don't know where to find or make changes to important information and resources relevant to them. For example:
HR departments spend up to 40% of their time on admin because of undigitized processes and siloed applications that don't speak to to each other. Employees don't know where to find or how to change important information such as personal details, pay, pension, benefits and share options.
IT departments waste time setting up and shipping around laptops manually, and setting up user accounts, groups and rights in each different application across the stack for each employee individually. Employees don't know which tools they should use when they start on the job and are often forgotten to be offboarded from critical systems when they leave, posing a security threat.
Our mission: integrate the entire stack and create a unified hub for people, apps and devices.
The availability of APIs and accessibility of automation technology like SSO and MDM has reached a point where every company could take advantage of them, however today only large companies have the resources and required expertise to implement expensive software tailored to the enterprise.
Our mission is to make business automation technology easily accessible to EVERY company, and we achieve this by integrating the entire IT stack and creating a single hub for all people, apps and devices. With Zelt, our customers can run HR and IT in one place, connect all apps, systems and devices in a central hub, get rid of admin, and provide employees with a unified portal for everything they need at work.
