Job Description:


Every day, over 5,000 developers rely on us to build the core foundation required for their applications. On our team, we build middleware - the software infrastructure designed for creating large-scale, fault-tolerant applications that run on thousands of machines throughout the world. We're two dozen C++ programmers building a complex infrastructure using a variety of programming paradigms such as RPC, publish/subscribe, and message queues.

With thousands of clients depending on our infrastructure solutions, we are looking to grow our Application Services (BAS) and Pragmatic General Multicast (PGM) teams:

The BAS group provides core infrastructure for server-side development and message exchange. BAS provides libraries, tools, and processes that implement a service-oriented architecture based on a message-routing paradigm. We provide location transparency to service clients, encapsulates routing policies and algorithms in the network, and deliver a common, scalable, robust platform for application software that includes resource configuration, metrics collection and reporting, network registration, and discovery. The platform supports thousands of services supporting practically every function and back-end process.

The PGM team develops distributed middleware transport libraries and services that support the low-latency, high volume transport requirements of applications and middleware services. The team focuses on implementing basic reliable multicast and unicast protocols, especially Pragmatic Reliable Multicast, as well as higher level services that include fault tolerance and service discovery.

You'll need to have:

  •  Demonstrated experience in C++
  •  Experience designing complex distributed systems
  •  A deep understanding of object-oriented design, data structures, and algorithms
  •  An aptitude for analytical problem solving
  •  Exposure to all phases of the software development lifecycle

We'd love to see:

  •  Willingness to use programming languages such as Python, JavaScript, or other scripting languages
  •  Familiarity with networking
  •  Experience working with Linux/UNIX
  •  Familiarity with the nuances of building high volume, high availability distributed systems
  •  Knowledge of network protocols such as TCP/IP and multicast and various optimization techniques
  •  Experience with multithreaded programming



All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply by submitting their resume as an MS word document including a cover letter with a summary of relevant qualifications, highlighting clearly any special or relevant experience.

Please Note: All inquiries will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. Your resume will not be submitted to any client company without your prior knowledge and consent.
