As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll work on improving and developing HeadSpin’s products. You will drive the creation and maintenance of reliable components that fit into the rest of the system. This includes common design language, component development, shared documentation and performance improvements. We are looking for an engaged engineer to join our networking team. The networking team focuses on the low level details of routing packets between our mobile devices and different network endpoints. They are also focused heavily on packet captures, and collecting metrics of the network systems within mobile devices and desktop applications. The team works in code bases including python, C++, go, swift, and java. A deep understanding of IPV4 and how Linux/macOS process packets is crucial to excelling in this role.
Being part of this team will lend you the opportunity to make an impact not just within your team but the engineering organization as a whole. You must be experienced and comfortable interfacing with members of other teams to gain clarity, triage issues, and drive them through cross-functional initiatives. As the organization scales, we will be looking at splitting up responsibility of the networking components between team members on the networking team. We encourage members of the team to engage in these discussions.
You will be joining our amazing team of passionate, hardworking collaborators from around the world. We live our core values and are proud to be a people-centric organization that strives to rapidly innovate, with an entrepreneurial mind-set, without sacrificing transparency and trust, and always remaining customer focused.
