Job Description

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 real story for us begins by impacting people on a global scale every day. By simplifying and automating thousands of processes across human resource management, payroll and recruiting, we are impacting more than 400,000 people.
You will join the squad responsible for Personio Conversations, a concierge for employees and a centralized point for all your employee requests. Conversations are part of the People Workflow Automation initiative. PWA automates people workflows across the employee lifecycle, across different tools and teams. It enables HR to go beyond HR and win back valuable time, time that can then be spent on and with people. We are a cross-functional group of engineers, designers and product managers from many nationalities and backgrounds, spread across different locations, and we continue to grow in 2022. Join us and help shape the People Workflow Automation journey for Personio — we are just getting started!

Role & Responsibilities
  • You'll join a team working on the latest software Personio released in August 2022, improving the experience of every employee working for Personio's customers.
  • With the help of our product manager, you'll design and implement new features that our customers will love.
  • You'll design and develop a maintainable, reliable, performant, and secure API to empower the frontend and our Slack/MSTeams integrations.
  • You'll lead by example and push our engineering practices towards excellence with efficient, performant code, good design patterns and healthy engineering standards.
  • You'll mentor engineers and review their code and RFCs to help them grow in their careers.
  • You'll participate in technical case interviews to bring in exceptional talents such as yourself.
How we work
  • We use our platform mindset to build services that every team can leverage and build upon.
  • We are a product company, so our teams are organised in a mission-based cross-functional fashion. You will work in the Workflows and Integrations Domain, alongside other Backend Engineers, Designers, Product and Engineering managers to create the building blocks to automate processes in all other customer-facing domains.
  • We have a “you built it, you run it” attitude and CI/CD is second nature to us - we use AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, and GitLab to implement it.
The skills you are bringing:
  • You have strong expertise with Go and professional experience building software at scale.
  • You follow industry best practices and deliver clean and tested code.
  • You have experience leading and mentoring other engineers. That means unblocking them, helping them become better engineers by reinforcing best practices, and reviewing their code and RFCs.
  • You have experience designing software components, respecting the separation of concern and making architectural decisions to help maintain the codebase.
  • You can translate Domain strategy into engineering decisions.
  • You have excellent written and spoken English (level C1/C2 on the CEFR scale).
The motivation you are bringing:
  • You are a team player. You don’t micromanage, you are open to different approaches, and you support the team on making decisions.
  • You are a proactive problem solver. You are willing to leave code and engineering practices in a better shape than when you first encountered them.
  • You are pragmatic and aware of the business value your code delivers. You can sacrifice “ideal” for “solid”. But you don’t leave tech debt behind.
  • You embrace change and have an iterative mindset for delivering software: bring your agile mindset to the table!
  • You embrace feedback - no one is perfect, neither are we. Let’s make this an opportunity to praise and learn from each other.
  • Teaching, Coaching and empowering your colleagues is something that fulfils you.
  • Humour! Have fun with us, learn with us from mistakes and bring your good vibes.
Aside from our people, culture, and mission, there are a variety of additional benefits that help make Personio a great place to work! Work with us and receive:

  • Competitive compensation package that includes salary, benefits, and pre-IPO equity
  • 28 days of paid vacation, plus another additional day after 2 and 4 years (because we love what we do, but we also love vacation!)
  • 2 Impact Days you can use to have an impact on the environment and society –  one for an individual project of your choice and one for a company-wide initiative! #SocialResponsibility
  • Find your best way to work with our office-led, remote-friendly PersonioFlex! We offer a roughly 50% remote, 50% in-office working framework to suit your needs
  • Annual personal development budget of €1,500 for conferences, courses, books, career coach, etc.
  • Regular company and team events like Oktoberfest, ski trips, Christmas parties, and more! (COVID permitting)
  • High-impact working environment with flat hierarchies and short decision-making processes
  • Generous family leave, child support, mental health support, and sabbatical opportunities with PersonioCares
  • Save money with corporate discounts across brands like Adidas, LG, Bosch, Apple, and more
  • Choose between green mobility options, including a bike lease covered by Personio
  • Monthly tax-free stipend of €162 to help cover food and public transportation expenses (Cobee)
  • Private health insurance (company level plan): Access to Sanitas plan at a reduced employee cost (€43 for employees, spouse, or children)
  • Access multiple fitness studios and sports facilities across Spain for €30 per month with a subsidized Gympass membership
  • Free English and Spanish language classes
We’re using technology to revolutionize the way HR operates, transforming the way millions of people experience work every day. In June 2022 we raised a second Series E funding of $200 million, allowing us to turbocharge this change and making Personio the fastest-growing and most valuable HR technology company in Europe.

With over 6,000 customers and a team of 1,500 in seven offices across Europe, now is the perfect time to join! We’re hiring talented, impact-driven individuals who want to be more than just another employee. Will you be one of them? 

Personio is an equal opportunities employer. We are committed to building an integrative culture where everyone feels welcomed and supported. We #EmbraceUniqueness and understand that our diverse, values-driven culture makes us stronger. As we continue to scale, we focus on enabling our employees to grow both personally and professionally.
