An Insider's view of AppHarvest

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We do a good job of taking time when needed. Development will be there when you get back. If you clearly put in a herculean task or worked time that is excess managers will tell you to go take time and be annoying about it cause they don't want you to burn out.


Senior Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We have a lot of structures in places to facilitate collaboration between cross-functional teams. We have brainstorming sessions to bring innovative ideas to solve complex problems, design review meetings to get feedback from stakeholders, reading groups where we discuss the latest research publications in Robotics and AI.


Senior ML Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We have a team that constantly challenges assumptions and relies on innovative ideas across the board to guide technical development and consistently improve performance. When attacking a new challenge, we host a “design bake-off” where the team gets to have a fun competition on bringing differing ideas to the table.
