Job position

Job description
At Apcera, we don’t shy away from solving hard problems, while being mindful to avoid “not invented here” syndrome. We write most of our code in Go, but we strive to choose the best tool for each job. We dip into C and other languages from time to time. Our team of veterans includes alumni of Google, Twitter, Square, Microsoft, VMware and TIBCO.

We wanted best-of-breed HTTP routing, so we implemented dynamic configuration directly into NGINX in C allowing routing updates—without dropping connections

Our components communicate using gnatsd, our Go implementation of NATS, a high-performance distributed pub-sub messaging server with a serious pedigree

We love open source, and we use Github to collaborate and host our code (both public and private). For example:

In January 2013, we co-sponsored the development of WebSocket support in NGINX

In October 2013, we open-sourced gnatsd

Come talk with us to find out what other challenging technical problems we're solving. We would love your help to get better, faster.

Skills & requirements
We want to work with people who:

Take pride in their code and appreciate feedback, discussion, and iteration

Value testing and know that 100% coverage is not the goal

Get a warm and fuzzy feeling from Postel’s Law

Write code in several languages, and have switched their main language at least once in their career

Can describe the difference between concurrency and parallelism

Like to both learn from and mentor their colleagues

Have experience running a large service
