The Pragmatic Engineer's Resume Template

A clean template I created while writing The Tech Resume Inside Out. This template is a good choice to use for developers applying for tech positions. This CV / resume template is featured - and analyzed - in my book, The Tech Resume Inside Out: What a Good Software Engineer Resume Looks Like.

This template is a proven one with more than 6,500 downloads. People messaged me to share they got recruiter calls at Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Robinhood, Stripe, Uber and other companies using this template. Of course, the template is a small part in this: the contents of your resume are more important.
