Job Description

About Harvest

Harvest is an industry-leading, independent software company that makes tools to help businesses run more smoothly. We believe that businesses only succeed by using their time intentionally. Our products support our customers through time tracking, reporting, and forecasting features.

Harvest started in 2006 as a team of three and has grown to today’s current team of almost 60 with Harvesters working from around the globe. We’ve worked as a remote team since the beginning and we continue to hire the right people for the job no matter where they call home.

We strive to create a workplace culture where everyone feels valued, included, and heard. One important aspect of this is continuing to create spaces for diverse life experiences and work histories. If you are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented and disadvantaged in tech, business, and society in general, we want to meet you and we encourage you to apply.

Harvest Engineering

At Harvest, you’ll be working with a team of honest and respectful engineers who value giving and receiving feedback and trust that they can count on each other.

The Harvest Engineering Department consists of three divisions: Software Engineering, Operations Engineering, and Quality Engineering. Software Engineering is comprised of two teams, Experiences and Ecosystem.

Our Ecosystem team is focused on building an expansive set of integrations and evolving our API to better enable customers to use Harvest with their other favorite tools seamlessly. This team also designs and owns several backend services related to authentication, authorization, and billing.

Our Experiences team creates web, mobile, and desktop applications that provide performant, meaningful, and relevant experiences for our customers. This team is focused on building a first-in-class, design-focused product that changes how timekeeping feels by reducing friction and effort in the time-tracking experience.

Why We’re Hiring

Our Engineering team is growing and we’re currently looking for a Frontend Engineer to join us here at Harvest.

Our Software Engineering teams are focused on a variety of high impact work that is aimed at delivering a best in class, multi-device experience and a large set of available integrations that allow our customers to get the most out of tracking their time while seamlessly blending into their workflows.

Frontend Engineer Responsibilities

You’ll help guide our efforts by developing and maintaining Harvest applications and services, improving application performance, and extending the functionality of our product to help better serve our customers.

What You’ll Do

  • Build web and native applications that delight our customers.
  • Improve application performance and consolidate our code bases across our multi-device application strategy
  • Be a great teammate by improving our technical documentation and code quality, and contributing ideas to our technology.
  • Work with cross-functional teams to create work you’re proud of, better understand our customers’ needs, formulate use cases, and translate those into solutions.
  • Use metrics, data, and customer feedback to improve application performance
  • Work with a diverse, remote-first team of kind humans that span the globe.

Who You Are

  • You enjoy learning and view mistakes as opportunities to grow, and teach others. You’re open to jumping into new areas and working outside your comfort zone.
  • You have a strong interest in experimenting with new technologies and building prototypes.
  • You balance reaching out for help from others with researching solutions on your own. You know where to find answers and when to ask for assistance.
  • You care about the details, but not at the cost of the big picture. You believe finishing a good project is better than waiting for perfection.
  • You’re a great communicator and proactively raise concerns and suggestions for how we can get better as a team. You anticipate problems and help organize the effort or plans to improve these situations.
  • You believe feedback is a gift, seek it out, and act on it.

What You’ve Done

  • You’ve built SaaS web or native applications on Android, iOS, macOS, or Windows using technology like React, Ember.js, AngularJS, React Native, Electron or similar.
  • You have extensive experience working with HTML, CSS, or JavaScript and the fundamentals of frontend web development.
  • You've written robust and reliable code in a modern language or framework such as JavaScript, Node.js, or Ruby on Rails, or have a strong interest in learning these technologies.
  • You’ve worked with cross-functional teams to lead small projects and are comfortable breaking down large projects into smaller tasks, explaining the work in both technical and non-technical terms, and negotiating the scope of work with your team.

At Harvest, our compensation consists of three main components:

  • A competitive base pay: Every Harvester with the same role expectations receives the same base pay. And we aim to pay at the top of the market (informed by third-party data) for all roles.
  • Individual and company performance bonus plans: We believe in rewarding performance, so all Harvesters are eligible to receive an individual and company performance bonus after working with Harvest for a period of time.
  • Competitive benefits*: We offer a number of benefits, including
    • 15 days of vacation in your first year, plus company holidays and a week off for winter break. And you’ll get an addition two days per year until you reach twenty days.
    • 100% coverage of health insurance premiums across our medical, dental, and vision plan offerings for you, your spouse, and your dependents
    • A yearly budget for your professional learning and development goals
    • 401k plan with a 6% company match after three months with the company
    • 16 weeks of paid family leave to all new parents with the option to use it all at once or throughout the baby’s first year as well as a virtual platform providing support across fertility, pregnancy, adoption, and through your first year of parenting
    • A charitable giving matching program to support your contributions to your favorite charitable organizations
    • And much more...

*Some of the benefits described are only available to U.S.-based Harvesters. Benefits information for non-U.S.-based Harvesters will be provided to individuals who interview for those roles.
