Back-End Software Developer (C++)

Job description

Do you want to build well-engineered software by combining modern libraries and low-level system APIs on Windows, macOS, and Linux to produce ultra-smooth HID and data sharing code for millions of users?

Location: United Kingdom

Who is this for? This role is suitable for those seeking full-time employment at Symless in the United Kingdom. For those willing to relocate, we're offering a competitive salary, as well as a sign-on bonus. We also provide visa sponsorship and pay all relocation costs. There are multiple vacancies for this position and candidates can have any level of experience, but must be very intelligent. Students and graduates are welcome.

About Symless and Synergy: Our mission is to help people use multiple computers together in one seamless and cohesive experience. Since 2012, Symless has proudly developed Synergy, an app that shares one mouse, one keyboard, and one clipboard between multiple computers. As well as having over 2 million users worldwide, our product is regularly featured on top tech channels like Linus Tech Tips, a channel with over 10.4 million viewers. It's also used at some pretty neat companies like Apple, Pixar, Disney, Google, Amazon, and many more. That said, we're actually a very small company of 10 people, so you won't let lost in the crowd.

What about the role? Your role will be working as part of a team to build the next generation of Synergy, developing core-components with excellent performance in mind. You'll be one of 8 others in a team of highly intelligent software developers, learning and collaborating together to build something amazing that will delight our users. To learn more about Synergy, see our Synergy Roadmap.

Responsibilities: Here are a few things you'll be doing...

  • Build low-level system components
  • Opportunity to work on an open-source project
  • Your voice matters, so share your ideas
  • Try out new technologies and innovate
  • Code using test-driven-development
  • Contribute to agile methodology and planning
  • Teach others on the team what you learn
  • Test your own code thoroughly
  • Engage with customers publicly on forums
  • Assist the support team by responding to escalated tickets
  • Learn from 20 years of development experience

Please be aware of the fact that we will start interviewing for this position end of June/beginning of July.
