 Senior C/C++ Developer

Hello everyone!

We are looking for a Senior C/C++ Developer in a Massive product startup, fully remote.

Further - more, in the Q&A.

What are we doing?

We built a new business model for the internet. The Massive SDK is an alternative to current online monetization. The SDK lets developers charge their users for premium services and in-app items with a little bit of their unused computing resources, rather than ads or money.

The SDK works by analyzing available resources across Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS devices and making that supply accessible to computing needs on the demand side, including scientific calculations, cryptocurrency mining, Monte Carlo simulations, and bandwidth sharing.

Why are we doing this?

The startup’s goal is to build a two-sided marketplace for compute power. That means lots more users offering up a slice of their computing power, future acceptance of mobile devices, and a broader partner list.

Why join Massive?

  • We’re solving some of the biggest networking and infrastructure challenges to help re-decentralized the internet. You’ll work on novel projects that grow your expertise and your innovation is welcome.
  • Work when you want, from where you want. Our northstar is the quality and impact of work. We encourage finding the smartest ways to solve problems, rather than the most arduous.
  • We’re a fully distributed team. Work from wherever you want (as long as you have good bandwidth).
  • Our leadership team is comprised of serial entrepreneurs. We’ve built successful companies and aim to create a relaxed environment where engineers can focus on the projects that keep them happy and challenged at work.

  • 3+ years of experience developing applications for Windows
  • Experience in cross-platform development
  • Experience developing and maintaining an SDK

  • Good understanding of IP, TCP, and UDP network protocols
  • Experience with systems programming and network programming
  • Strong communication skills, ability to take ownership
  • Understanding of company objectives and how to meet goals efficiently

Would be a plus:

  • Сommand of C#, Go, or Rust languages
  • Client-side experience (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and Angular, React, or jQuery)
  • Experience with cloud REST API integrations for client-side applications
  • Experience with WebRTC or other streaming clients
  • Experience with interprocess interaction (XPC, sockets, agents, daemons, and helpers)
  • Experience collecting telemetry from networks and clients
  • Experience with continuous integration and deployment services (e.g., AppVeyor)

What to do in the project?

  • Build new in house application powered by Massive 
  • Work on partner integrations and the client SDK
  • Design and implement new functionality
