  • Programming expertise in Rust, or any native languages such as C/C++ used on cross-platform (Android, iOS, MacOS, Windows)
  • Experience in audio software development, preferably as an audio or game engine core developer
  • Experience with multimedia processing (mux/demux/encoding/decoding/resampling)
  • Experience with audio libraries (ex: CoreAudio, OpenSLES, AAudio, FFmpeg, SDL, etc.)
  • Good knowledge of mathematics related to audio signal processing (FFT, convolution, correlation, etc.)
  • Good knowledge of low-level, high performance and concurrent programming
  • Knowledge of mobile technologies (iOS, Android) and/or embedded development an asset
  • Familiarity with test driven development and continuous integration

You get

  • To learn (or perfect) to code with the latest programming language (Rust)
  • A fun place to work and meaningful challenges that will touch people around the world
  • A week vacation to the destination of your choice before you start
  • A brand new laptop and premium headphones of your choice (Bluetooth or wired, since we know you care about audio quality)
  • Private health clinic and comprehensive health benefits (we pay everything, no deductions on your pay!)
  • Salary based on experience
  • Up to 10% yearly bonus, based on team performance.
  • Stock options — if the company does well, everyone does well!
