Do you want to help improve the safety of air travel?
Do you want to be sure that your neighbour’s pacemaker won’t suffer a kernel panic?
Do you hate it when your software crashes in the middle of a video call with some cute someone?
Do you believe that the quality of our lives depends on correct and efficient software?
So far, Codility has tested 900K+ software engineers for Amazon, Samsung, Square, TripAdvisor, Harvard, MIT and 1200+ other businesses worldwide. This is just the beginning, and there are only 20 of us!
Our story began in China, where Greg, our founder, wrote a tool to help his team screen candidates for technical interviews. This idea evolved into a startup that helps legions of engineers to recruit and be recruited in a merit-based, efficient and enjoyable way.
You will work in a small team (10 at the moment) of excellent programmers to implement new features and refactor mercilessly. You will work on our core technologies, which include self-improving test sets, programming language translators, a secure execution sandbox, elastic pricing models and fuzzy code comparison, as well as on new ideas. You will be responsible for writing well-structured code that is fun to work with, both for yourself and for others.
Skills & Requirements
You are smart and get things done. Also:
* You can code blindfolded in at least one imperative programming language (we don’t care which)
* You learn fast (in particular, we’ll need you up to speed in Python in two weeks from day one)
* You understand computer science
* You are brave about attacking complex problems
* You thrive in a startup environment
* You are curious and driven.
Warsaw and our office
We are a healthy mixture of engineers and business people. There are daily challenges and lots of fast learning involved. This is the best job we had so far. We have small egos and big brains, although our CEO still thinks we should just say <<we have small egos>> to be consistent. We work from a loft office in the centre of Warsaw** and from apartments in Silicon Valley and Germany. Everybody has a budget for dream equipment, growth, taking good care of themselves*** and unlimited Amazon book orders. Our office has a hammock and a flying helicopter, but the work we do is serious. From time to time we open the office for meetups, co-workers and our friends. You can also check us out yourself :)
** In case you wonder why Warsaw, Google Campus seconds us.
*** Take good care of yourself is one of our core values.
* relocation assistance
* your dream equipment
* growth budget (conferences, mentors, workshops, classes - you name it)
* private medical insurance
* unlimited Amazon book orders.
