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.

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!
