WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A PRINCIPAL ENGINEER AT HARVER?
At Harver we encourage a culture of engineering leadership from the CEO down. Meaning, as a Principal Engineer, at Harver you will never report to a “manager” where justifying technical decisions is always a struggle. You will work alongside like-minded Medior, Senior and Principal Engineers and the Head of Engineering to create incredible software products to further our mission of revolutionising the recruitment process.
The Principal Engineering team of two currently, is a special team at Harver. Most of our software engineers operate within teams working on vertical, end-to-end segments of our architecture. But how do we ensure these teams are working towards a common, holistic vision? This is the job of the Principal Engineering team. They own the overall architecture and fulfil two main roles:
You should be driven by the mandate to make things. To create software used by hundreds of top global companies like Netflix, Heineken, Booking.com, Albert Heijn and Valvoline and to create software which creates opportunities for millions of applicants by facilitating hiring based on ability and personality and not purely by resume. You are excited by both beautiful code, but also the difference that our product makes to real peoples’ lives.
