What They’re Looking For:

  • Expertise in C++ programming with a strong grasp of the language’s abstraction mechanisms and STL
  • 3+ years of professional industry experience

  • Proficiency with UNIX operating systems (particularly Linux), system/processor performance, and network communication
  • Strong problem-solving, debugging, and design optimization skills
  • Ability to work independently as well as collaboratively in a team environment

Qualities They Value:
