  • Regularly teach / mentor other engineers on the team.

  • Always be open to learning from others and continuously seek out sources of new knowledge/skills/habits for yourself and your teammates.

  • You will work on problems we haven’t figured out yet and enjoy the satisfaction of having an impact in the team’s success.



What You’ll Bring


Our team is always looking for individuals who embody our values of humility, empathy, collaboration, respectfulness, trustworthiness and good natured-fun. Additionally…


  • You have a proven track record of effectively delivering creating solutions to challenging projects, with 6+ years of software engineering experience with at least 3 recent years experience building building low/systems-level software in C++ on Windows.

  • You have a passion for software development as a craft and an ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment where the focus is on value delivered, not tasks completed.

  • You have some experience working with the Windows kernel (or any other kernel) and have active interests in learning more kernel/driver development, but you are equally ready to dive into parts of the tech stack outside of the kernel. 

  • Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a related field.

  • You are fluent with designing and building high performance, concurrent and scalable applications

  • You are fluent and comfortable with troubleshooting concurrency as well as investigating scale and performance problems.
