What is Harness doing to protect its employees during this time?

Harness has also taken further steps to help the community and those affect by the coronavirus.

Helping our community

A note from Harness CEO, Jyoti Bansal


"As we all navigate the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on our lives, there are people in our community that are not able to socially isolate and work from home, because we need them to stay at work to help curtail this crisis; ie: healthcare workers. And with schools closed across California and Texas, the children of these essential workers, and the children of low-income families, are now being cared for in make-shift emergency daycare centers set up in public libraries and recreation centers. While our employees work from home and our office food program is suspended, we will use our already budgeted Friday meal program so we can feed these children and low income families in need. This means your canceled Friday lunch will go directly to the plate of a child who has a parent working to help limit the impact of this crisis or is in a low-income family and may otherwise not have a meal at all.  We will donate our budgeted Friday lunch to aid in this cause; the San Francisco office will donate to the San Francisco Food Bank, the Mountain View office will donate to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, and the Dallas office will donate to The Stew Pot. Although at this time we must keep spacial distance, we can still do a part in supporting our community!"

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Harness (San Francisco, CA) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process is fast. Overall process took 10 days. So be prepared.
    I had 2 phone screen of 45 min. and 4 one hour on site interviews.
    Know your resume, think out loud and code. Along with coding, process of approaching to the solution is more important. Language agnostic interview here. I preferred python and coded my solutions in python. Interviewers are do value your prior experience and do listen to you. and most importantly go through the product documentation well and asking good questions about the product goes long way.
