Senior Software Engineer, Backend

| Greater NYC Area

At Harry’s we are building a cutting edge technology stack to support our multi-brand vision. We are a successful men’s grooming and men’s care brand. We launched in 2013, focused on quality craftsmanship, simple design and modern convenience and now we have over 3 million customers worldwide.

With our most recent round of financing ($112 million), we are developing brands beyond men’s care. The technology required to enable our goals is more sophisticated than first meets the eye. If you are a driven, talented engineer, come join us and help build the platform that will enable our new vision.

About the Role 

As a Senior Software Backend Engineer you will be responsible for designing and implementing backend services to support a variety of business needs. You will refine the design of our existing architecture and understand the impact that this can have across the company. You care about software elegance and enjoy doing code reviews to raise the bar for efficiency and programming best practices. You will report to the Senior Director of Core Engineering.

What you will accomplish:

  • Become the primary contributor in the design and implementation of new backend services
  • Make improvements to existing backend services to make them more performant, reliable, secure, testable and maintainable
  • Contribute to improving key engineering metrics for performance, availability, scalability and efficiency in support of additional brands, systems and geographies
  • Contribute to engineering best practices - writing RFCs, creating runbooks, driving process improvements (e.g. to CI/CD, deployments, code reviews, incident resolution, etc…)

This should describe you:

  • You have experience in developing backend services, troubleshooting & debugging issues.
  • You have familiarity with more than one programming paradigm (knowledge of Scala / functional programming and Java / object-oriented programming is a plus)
  • You have a DevOps mindset, taking responsibility for the entire system and its operations (experience with AWS technologies is a plus)
  • You know how to make large software projects maintainable and extensible in the long run and have experience with technologies such as databases, queues, workers, concurrency, indexes, etc.
  • You are curious about software and how things work, you work to understand technical problems deeply, and you stay current.

Harry’s is committed to bringing together individuals from different backgrounds and perspectives. We strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive, feel a sense of belonging, and do great work together. As an equal opportunity employer, we prohibit any unlawful discrimination against a job applicant on the basis of their race, color, religion, veteran status, sex, parental status, gender identity or expression, transgender status, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability or genetic information. We respect the laws enforced by the EEOC and are dedicated to going above and beyond in fostering diversity across our company.

An Insider's view of Harry's

What are some social events your company does?

Inspired by the Winter Olympics, we're currently holding our own Harry's Olympics. It's completely ridiculous and incredibly fun! We also have happy hours, breakfasts, lunch and learns, and team offsites. I love joining smaller groups that connect me with people I don't work with everyday.

Senior Associate, Creative Projects

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As Harry's expands beyond razors, we are focused on building a platform that can support multiple brands, which is transforming our technical infrastructure. We're also collaborating with our data analytics team to better understand our customers, both present and future, and serve personalized and curated experiences to them.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Besides working in an open office (where I’m quite literally always accessible), each week my co-founder & I speak at our all-hands meeting, allowing us to openly share what’s on our minds. We host Q&As, Fireside Chats, Lunch N’ Learns, & I co-sponsor our Women’s Employee Resource Group, where I work with folks at all levels within the company.
