About Harvest

Harvest is an independent software company that makes tools to help businesses run more smoothly. For the past 11 years, our customers have relied on our products as a critical part of their day-to-day operations. They’re the reason we’re still in business, and their needs drive our product decisions.

Harvest started as a team of 3 and grew slowly to today’s current total of 51 lovely faces. Though we have an office in NYC, we hire the best people for the job no matter where they call home. We’ve worked as a remote team since the beginning, and we work hard to make sure everyone feels included and heard.

Design at Harvest

Our design team has a deceptively simple mission: build products that serve real world needs for people running businesses.

Our approach to building a product has always been to talk with our customers, listen to their feedback and questions, and to distill that information to discover what our customers actually need. It’s a process that requires care, patience, empathy, and intelligence. Everything we’ve been able to do as a company for the past 11 years comes from designing usable features that serve our customers’ actual needs.

This approach has served our company well, but lately we’ve taken a step back to understand how we’re serving our own team. We have a small and productive group, but we believe there’s unlocked potential that we’re not doing our best to realize.

There’s space on our team for an experienced designer who is ready to embrace the challenges of being a leader and mentor. You’ll make the team better not simply by adding raw talent, but by getting the most out of everyone here. You’ll have a mandate to recognize and nurture our team’s strengths and to identify and improve upon its weaknesses.
