Zapier (think, “happier”) came onto the scene only eight short years ago. They had 15 employees, all working to create a product that would make their customer’s lives easier. Their idea? Create a software that would allow disparate web applications the ability to communicate with each other and automate tasks for users. And that is exactly what they’ve done. Next week, they will be bringing their global-team to Minneapolis for an annual company retreat and hiring fair.
