What it’s like to work with us

From a process standpoint, we’re constantly evolving, but here’s a few themes that don’t change.

We’re Autonomous

We give our engineers problems to solve rather than solutions to implement.

We Tinker

We build small features to learn and iterate from. We’re comfortable admitting defeats and throwing away features that don’t make our users’ lives easier. We prefer continuous integration over scheduled releases, so we look for developers able to look at large complex problems and break them down into small pieces of deployable functionality.

We’re Transparent

We want our engineering team to work in lock-step with the other key areas of our business to build a product our customers love. We want to share our successes and learnings with each other as we continue to grow.

Harmonic is an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
