About Harvest

Harvest started as a team of 3 and is one of the earliest Rails applications designed for businesses. In the past year, the core of our application was re-built using modern, front-end technologies like Backbone and CoffeeScript. Though we are expanding our team, we remain a small and focused company. Harvest is self-funded, profitable and has become an integral tool for tens of thousands of customers in over 150 countries. We write on Harvest's engineering blog.

We are a team of humble and talented people all over the globe who genuinely care about our craft and demand the highest quality. Learn more about the human side of our company on the Harvest Watercooler.


About You

You have written a lot of JavaScript (and maybe some CoffeeScript). You explore new techniques and frameworks (such as Ember, Angular and D3) and understand that there are many solutions to the same problem. You write clearly about technical subjects. No matter the language, grammar and style are important to you.

Your location allows you at least four hours of overlap with a 9am-5pm US/Eastern workday.


About Us

We will work together in small, nimble teams. Harvest has been distributed from day one and you will feel like part of the Harvest family no matter where you live. Everyone has a voice and the power to make decisions that impact our customers and our teammates.
