Multimedia developer

At Igalia, we are looking to hire a person to join our multimedia team. Our work spans many layers of the software stack from the user interface elements of video players all the way to the firmware which controls the decoding hardware. As a member of our team, you will be responsible for ensuring that this entire constellation of parts works together to give the user performant and stable video playback.

Since we often communicate with clients and also must interact with the rest of our geographically distributed company, we rely on people with good communication skills. We are constantly learning from one another by engaging in internal discussions, so clear explanations of challenging technical ideas are essential. In tandem with communication skills, we are also looking for people ready to iterate constructively during code reviews. Due to the distributed nature of the team and the company, being self-directed and self-motivated is a huge advantage. We meet in person several times a year in Galicia, Spain, but remote work from anywhere in the world is perfectly acceptable. Finally, we are especially looking for people who have prior experience working on browser engines or multimedia libraries such as GStreamer, though this is not essential.

Work environment

Igalia is a worker-owned, employee-run company with 15 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.

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 maintain a permanent diversity commission that helps to shape company policy and that we always try to hold ourselves accountable to our internal code of conduct. 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.
