At Personio we are on the amazing journey of becoming the leading HR Platform in Europe! Join our international agile Product, Design & Engineering team and take an active role in shaping our engineering culture and the future of thousands of HR teams and organizations across Europe. At Personio you will have a direct impact on our product, our users, our organization, and our engineering practices.

The Core HR (Human Resources) Domain is on a mission to empower organizations for employee self-service and remarkable employee management, integrated across domains. We are building our product around the employee lifecycle events, getting hired, getting promotions, getting married, leaving the company, and following the direct implications of these lifecycle events - for employees, managers, and HR managers. Like all our domains, we are a cross-functional group of engineers, designers, and product managers from many different nationalities and backgrounds, spread across different locations in several teams. We’ll continue to grow in 2022 and beyond. Join us and help shape Personio’s journey as part of our Core HR Domain.

As a Lead Software Engineer (d/f/m), you will be a bar raiser in a mission-based team within the Personio Engineering organization and take care of team productivity, technical alignment, and technical growth. In this role, you will act as a multiplier for your team. You know how to address each challenge - coding hands-on to prototype a solution, holding technical presentations, or conducting brainstorming sessions with engineers from other domains and teams to tackle a certain problem - You know it best!

Your main tasks and responsibilities:

  • Increasing performance and productivity of your team by raising ideas how to improve team internal processes and collaboration
  • Mentoring engineers in your team and fostering the technical growth of your teammates with/by pair programming, knowledge sharing and coaching

How we work:

  • We are transforming our PHP application into Kotlin microservices!
  • We are a product company, so our teams are organized in a mission-based cross-functional fashion. You will work with other Backend Engineers, Frontend Engineers, a Designer, a Product Manager, and an Engineering Manager on one product vertical of our HR Management & Recruiting software
  • We have a “you built it, you run it” attitude and CI/CD is our second nature - we use AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, and GitLab to implement it!
WHAT YOU NEED TO SUCCEED
  • Over 7 years of software engineering experience building and designing scalable applications using Java or Kotlin
  • Over 2 years of experience as a “Senior+” software engineer, with a proven track record of leading software engineering teams to tackle complex problems and coordinating implementation of features with stakeholders

  • We are experiencing rapid growth and are “building our plane while flying it”. So bring your agile mindset to the table!
  • Embrace feedback - no one is perfect, and neither are we. So let’s make this an opportunity to praise and learn from each other
  • Proactive problem solver. You are willing to leave code and engineering practices in a better shape than when you first encountered them
  • Let’s grow together - share your knowledge, we will share ours!
  • Humour. Have fun with us, learn with us from our mistakes and bring your good vibes
