Browsers developer (Chromium focus)

At Igalia we are looking for a new developer to contribute to both the Chromium web browser and the Blink layout engine. Members of our browsers team are responsible for a variety of tasks ranging from implementing new web-facing features to porting the browser to new platforms. Our work is in use on a wide range of mobile devices, televisions, and other devices. Free software and upstream contributions are important to us, so we are also active participants in the open-source community, contributing our work upstream as much as we can.

Chromium is a huge C++ project with many features, so candidates should be organized and flexible enough to adapt to different areas of the codebase. While there are no hard technical requirements, being able to write efficient, maintainable, and portable C++ system code is required for day-to-day work. Additionally, though prior experience contributing to web browsers is not a necessity, it may also be useful for this position.

Work environment

Igalia is a worker-owned, employee-run company with 16 years of experience building open source software in a wide range of exciting fields. We work on the core of such widely-deployed projects as the WebKit and Blink browser engines, the Mesa graphics drivers, the V8 and JavaScriptCore language runtimes, and the GStreamer multimedia toolkit. We are also at the cutting edge of high-speed software-defined networking with our work on Snabb Switch. At Igalia, you can develop your career in a unique environment, participating equally in the management of the company via our democratic, consensus-based assembly structure.

Igalia is a remote-friendly working environment, enabling employees all over the world to participate fully in the company culture. Our team includes employees based on Asia, Europe and America, spanning both timezones and cultures.

One of the core principles of Igalia is equality, so we feel a deep and continual obligation to acknowledge and counter the structural discrimination that permeates our industry and our world. In a practical sense this means that we have a permanent diversity commission that helps to shape company policy and that maintain a safe and inclusive work environment. We also feel that one of the best ways to accomplish these goals is to grow and maintain the diversity of Igalia itself. We welcome applicants regardless of their age, disability, gender, race, marital status, religion, sexual orientation or whatever type of systemic discrimination that they have faced.
