Browsers graphics developer (WebKit focus)

At Igalia, we are looking to hire a developer for our browsers team, with a particular focus on graphics and rendering.

This particular position requires collaboration with the WebKit community in order to both maintain and improve WebKit's rendering pipeline. As one of the most critical parts of a web engine used by millions of people this work provides an interesting challenge, as WebKit should maintain 60 frames per second on a variety of devices and with a variety of web content.

There are no hard requirements for applying, though relevant experience (C++, OpenGL, computer graphics) and a willingness to learn are welcome. Equally, it is not necessary that candidates have prior experience contributing to WebKit or browsers, but it may prove 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.
