The Role

At Personio we are on the amazing journey to become the leading HR Platform in Europe!

As part of our Recruiting Tribe, you´ll be working on making our customers’ recruiting process a breeze. Our mission is to enable organizations to attract the best talent, have a seamless interview process and hire efficiently. This starts with a planning process for job positions, publishing them career pages and promoting them on different job boards, sourcing of candidates, an interview process that allows for great interactions between everyone involved, selection of the best candidates and hiring them. You will join our newest team in the Recruiting tribe, where you will play a key role in establishing and implementing strong engineering practices and leading the technical activities of a new team from its formation.

As a Lead Software Engineer (m/f/d) 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 tribes to tackle a certain problem - You know it best!

This is a high impact role and you will be in the lead to create the long-term technical strategy for one of Personio’s main product components and represent the team in Personio’s Product & Engineering department. Like all our tribes 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 2021 and beyond. Join us and help shape Personio’s journey as part of our Recruiting Tribe.

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

You understand the needs of software engineers working in product teams, you’ve been in their shoes, and can empathise with them. You want to help your fellow engineers to achieve maximum efficiency
