Harvest is a beloved time tracking and invoicing web software company based in downtown New York City. We are looking for a developer to join us in creating the next generation of web software for businesses and teams. The products you work on will be seen and used by leading consultancies, freelancers, and Fortune 500 companies around the world. You’ll work with smart, fun, humble, and hard-working folks in a beautiful NYC downtown office. Sound good?
Who You Are:
  • You have a CS degree or relevant experience building web applications. You are smart, curious, and eager to learn.
  • You’ve got a couple side projects to show us.
  • You’re excited to work with great developers and learn new things.
  • You take pride in doing great work, and you care about the details.
  • You love the web, and you’re interested in everything from CSS to databases.

Sample of Things You Might Work On:
We can’t predict the future, so we’ll just list out a few things that we did in the past few weeks, and things we would’ve done if you were here.
  • Recreate bugs and un-expected behavior in our test suite, then fix the problem with our development team.  Communicate the problem and solution back to our customers.
  • Re-factor complex business logic to take advantage of new technologies and techniques. For instance our report generation and export just went from a tmpfile on disk to streaming output from our Rails daemons.
  • Build a great tool our team uses every day, like Lumberjack, our internally written log search tool.
  • Collaborate with our interaction designers and front end folks on a better first-time user experience, then make it happen.
  • Brainstorm exciting possibilities for 3rd party APIs, everything from financal tools to support dashboards and the newest Google APIs.
  • Move a small codebase over to a new technology like Rails 3, Ruby 1.9.2, jQuery, HTML5, or  CouchDB then report back to our team on the best tips and tricks.
