  • You have commercial experience developing quality C++ code, you’re familiar and practised with both C++98 and C++11 (and beyond)

  • You are able to transform abstract solutions into efficient, low-lock-contention, massively multithreaded algorithms.

  • You’re disciplined and can write test cases that exercise critical functionality, without adding too much maintenance to the codebase

  • You are platform-agnostic & flexible with the build environments (Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, iOS) that you work within

We’re after someone who can demonstrate these personal attributes:

  • Responsibleness – You take care to provide correctness first, since MEGA clients are entrusting their data to our code.

  • The ability to understand and adapt to cross-platform developments, from mobile apps to desktop clients

  • An understanding MEGA’s customer base, you understand how systems work to ensure our products run and can be used as intended.

If you feel you’ve got the skills and abilities to perform this role, live in the ‘European timezone’ (this is a non-negotiable), and are able to work effectively in a team, including understanding others’ code and designs, and adapting to other team members’ preferences, then we’d love to hear more from you.
