What You'll Be Working On

We are expanding our offering to Windows and looking for a Senior Windows Developer to drive the development and delivery of our Windows product. You will be working closely with our compiler team to integrate our core scrambling technology, but there will also be plenty of challenging Windows internals engineering. The primary responsibility is ownership of the overall Windows product and experience (e.g., user-interface, installer, service/agent) from design and development to testing to deployment and support.

Who We're Looking For

Does a fast-paced workplace that constantly pushes you well outside your current skill set excite you? At Polyverse, you'll be challenged to solve diverse problems that will disrupt the cybersecurity industry!

  • No fear in tackling some very hard problems.
  • Willing to learn new languages. We are writing the Windows product in Rust.
  • Embracing full end-to-end product ownership across multiple versions of Windows.

An ideal candidate would have shipped a commercial product (e.g., A/V, SysInternals tooling, Windows shell/desktop) with deep involvement across all aspects of the application stack. So if this sounds exciting, and you're fearless and a fast learner, you'll love working at Polyverse!

You May Be the Right Fit If You...

  • understand machine/assembly language
  • have experience troubleshooting by stepping through machine instructions under debugger, watching registers and memory
  • have experience with tools and APIs for manipulating Windows object files and executables during linking, loading, and execution
  • have a strong formal academic training in computer science (or equivalent work experience)
  • tend to obsess over code correctness, simplicity and performance
  • have 8+ years development experience with a proven track record of delivering high quality production software
  • have 4+ years of software design and programming experience in C/C++/C# or Rust for development, debugging, testing and performance analysis.
  • are a great teammate with strong analytical, communication, problem solving, debugging, and troubleshooting skills
  • have a Github account that shows your chops
