    Good place to work

    Jul 12, 2020 - Lead Frontend Developer in Moscow

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Great opportunities to grow (especially you feel involved in the project) - Open-minded people - Engeenires care a lot about the code quality - Good engineering culture (code reviews, CI\CD, testing, experiments, linters) - One of the best QA infrastructure I ever met - Strong backend, and frontend architecture teams - HeadHunter's developer school, where you could try yourself as a lecturer, mentor, or even team leader. Or learn something new (Java for frontend developers as an example) - Developers has a big influence on the product, they can participate in "product discovery" process, engage in custdev sessions - work-life balance - it's easy to discuss features with product owners (even if you belong to another team) - Flat structure (for real, I have spoken with the CEO without any problems) - The company is interested in people's growth. I (with another initiative developers) developed team leaders' competency model, developers' competency model - Good salaries - Everybody is ready to help you

    Cons

    - Outside architecture (front, back) and technical oriented (search) teams the developers level is lower (with some good exceptions) - Sometimes I'd like to have stronger product owners. - Service is really big (200+ unique pages) so that it's hard to remember all specific business logic during feature developing - Processes could vary from team to team significantly - As the company is big, some people could just sit their working hours

    Pros

    Great positive culture, very welcoming to the bright, passionate, hard working people, who want to do something great and adore to work and hanging out together. People enjoy the work at HH.ru. Most of them check email or work from home in evenings and go out with coworkers or just have drinks at the office after work. Professional development is a great part of company's culture. HeadHunter offer variety of courses on things like presentation skills, sales, management skills and technical topic. All the executives are easy going and kind people, in the same time very professional. Most of them built their career to the top within of the company. The company was growing quickly and still keep promoting people from within. HeadHunter has high hiring standards both technical and attitude. Salaries are pretty high comparing to the average on the market.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons. It's just ... if you are not willing to treat your job as an important part of your life, HeadHunter probably is not the company you want work for.
