Staff Backend Engineer (m/f/d) - HR Management

Permanent employee, Full-time · Munich

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

Our Human Resource Management Tribe is on a mission to empower organizations for employee self service and remarkable employee management, integrated across domains.
The HRM Tribe's 5 teams 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 tribes we are a cross-functional group of engineers, designers and product managers from many different nationalities and backgrounds, spread across different locations and we continue to grow in 2021. Join us and help shape the HRM Tribe journey for Personio.

As a hands-on Staff Engineer you will be one of the main stakeholders to drive the technical direction of the tribe and create alignment across teams in your tribe and beyond. You will work closely with the Senior Engineering Manager, the Group Product Manager and the teams' Tech Leads. Your role is to challenge the teams' technical road maps, work hands-on in 2-3 projects to bring features to maturity, give guidance, help to migrate the remains of our monolith into a state-of-the-art Kotlin microservice architecture, empower our technical vision and create RFCs where collaboration with other tribes is needed. 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.

How we work

  • We are a product company so our teams are organised in a mission-based cross-functional fashion. You will work with other Backend Engineers, Frontend Engineers,  Designers, Product Managers &  Engineering Managers within and outside of your tribe.
  • 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

  • Outstanding communication skills to provide technical guidance and leadership.
  • Experience with Kotlin or Java, Spring Boot, Kubernetes, ElasticSearch and reliable data storage.
