What You'll Be Working On
Our flagship product is polymorphic versions of popular Linux distros. We deliver uniquely compiled packages for every customer for every download. Our packages use the same Open Source code as the official Linux repositories, but we randomize everything inside the binaries – instructions, registers, addresses, etc. This ground-breaking product delivers a Linux system that is immune to all memory exploit attacks – even those that have yet to be discovered or disclosed!
To deliver this product, we touch everything from Linux kernels to engineering massively distributed, fault-tolerant cloud services. We're looking to grow our elite team to share in our common goal: protect our customers by delivering high-entropy packages with the most reliable, scalable, cost-efficient, secure build farm and package repository serving system in the world, with quality and with an awesome customer experience.
Who We're Looking For
Are you looking for a fast-paced workplace that constantly pushes you well outside your current skill set? At Polyverse, you might be asked to work on something completely different every week: modify a compiler/linker, develop a tool that measures entropy, optimization of a Linux build environment, new cloud scale-out scheduler capabilities. Our engineers are responsible for designing, coding, testing, deploying and production support; we don't have dedicated operations or test engineers. So if this sounds exciting, you're fearless and a fast learner, you'll love working at Polyverse!
You May Be the Right Fit If You...
- have a strong formal academic training in computer science (or equivalent work experience)
- are fluent in Go (our primary language) and/or C/C++
- have excellent verbal and written communication skills
- are a great teammate with strong analytical, problem solving, debugging, and troubleshooting skills
- are proficient in operating and managing Linux
- have engineered production workloads for AWS (or another cloud provider)
- have experience with container technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker
- tend to obsess over code simplicity and performance
- dare to learn a new esoteric programming language (say, Erlang or Haskell or Rust) and start writing code in it the same day
- have a Github account that shows your chops
