Responsibilities and Qualifications

This position is located in Amsterdam
We are looking forward to continued growth in 2022 and need Software Engineers to help form a new development team responsible for creating and delivering a new addition to our product suite. As a Software Engineer, you'll be an integral part of a focused team of 3-5 software engineers together with QA, Devops and UX specialists. Software teams at Harver independently own domain services within our product-suite and are responsible for their development, maintenance, releases and integration. 
In this role you’ll get to:
  • Create, deploy and manage a SaaS software used by millions of people globally. 
  • Practice all facets of good software development: user experience, performance, scalability, security, maintainability etc. 
  • Engage in the process of making software. You will be inspired by methodologies such as Lean Development and Extreme Programming. 
You'll work with our engineering principles: 
  • Simple Design. Build up system complexity through frequent simple steps. Simplicity before generality. 
  • Behavior Driven Development. The process of developing software collaboratively driven by specification. 
  • Continuous Delivery. Creating a momentum of delivery through incremental feedback cycles and updates. 
  • Non-solo programming. Working collaboratively and as a true team. 
  • Understanding Production. Understanding how your software works in the real-world in terms of both technical operation and user experience. 


These five principles are derived from Extreme Programming; we also eschew Scrum in favor of more Kanban and Lean styles of working. These are all concepts should you have some experience of but also desire a deeper understanding. 

We will offer you:
  • A clear path for career growth in our industry-leading organization
  • Competitive salary + bonus opportunity 
  • Pension program
  • Employee Equity Program
  • Free healthy lunch at the office
  • 24 days of PTO 
  • Commuting allowance 
We’re looking for people who have:
  • Expertise and familiarity with our technical stack. You should consider yourself a "full-stack" engineer, but bias toward frontend or backend is ok. 
  • BS/MS in computer science or equivalent work experience 
  • Depth of experience within software development (BDD & TDD, CI/CD, pair programming), preferably in a SaaS environment 
  • Excellent communication skills (written & verbal) 
  • While familiarity with our core technology stack (Node, React, Typescript, Postgres, Mongo, AWS) is a bonus, we’re looking for not just great coders, but great software engineers who are focused on delivering great products and inspiring those around them to do so too. 
  • The points in this post about responsibilities, engineering practices and culture should resonate with you and excite you. 
  • The desire to work in a collaborative and productive environment, are a continual learner and stay up to date with technology 
  • Been disillusioned by sprints and story points and are seeking liberation; another way! 

Pssst ... you don’t have to check all the boxes to apply!
