About this position

Let’s face it… People read text messages, more than any other medium, which is why we are the fastest growing segment in Bandwidth.

We’re looking for a C/C++ Developer who will lead by example in designing and developing world-class, highly scalable, cloud based applications that allow customers to provision, send, receive, and track billions of messages. You’re gonna write great code and lots of it.  You’ll be a senior member of an agile software development team, and a leading voice in your team’s design and implementation efforts.  You’ll collaborate with peers to build and refactor code to enhance capacity and reliability. You’ll also look critically at what we’re building and how we’re building it, and you’ll originate ideas and activities that advance our craft.

What You’ll Do

If you’re our person, you probably look like this:

  • You’re passionate about writing testable code, and your automated tests prove it.
  • You’re familiar with relational and non-relational database systems.
  • You’re an experienced debugger who drills down on issues until the root cause is found.
  • You have experience implementing multithreaded processes, and are familiar with common pitfalls of concurrency.
  • Contribute to solutions from start to finish, collaborating across teams to iteratively ship value.
  • Work with a team of developers with experience with distributed microservices and full stack systems.
  • Work closely with product managers to create solutions that deliver the power to communicate.

What We Are Looking For:

You are the right candidate if…

  • You are very passionate about your craft of building services with programming in C or C++ but have experience in other languages like Java, C#, etc.
  • You know IP networking, web protocols, and REST.
  • You enjoy having a mission-focus, solving complex problems at scale, and working closely with stakeholders to continually improve the customer experience and application reliability.
  • You have a proven history of leading by example through your design and implementation. 
  • You enjoy mentoring others.
  • You are consistently innovating while actively reducing the complexity and increasing scalability and security across the software you develop.
  • You enjoy having your head in the Cloud (particularly the AWS Cloud).

It would also be really great if:

Wow, it’d be really great if also:

  • You have deep experience with AWS or another cloud platform, and you “get” how scalable cloud applications are engineered
  • You’ve used Jenkins and have written pipelines for continuous integration of your code changes.

Little Extra For You

  • All new hires receive four weeks of PTO
  • PTO Embargo. When you take time off (of any kind!) you’re embargoed from working. Bandmates and managers are not allowed to interrupt your PTO – not even with email
