“Basically what we're looking for is someone who can be our engineer, who works on and contributes to the electron project. Our Electron expert.”
For example, Electron has a current, long-running bug which is critical for us but not critical for the community at large: #12027. Fixing that bug requires that you understand Electron and its internals and hack at the underlying Chromium layer which is in C++.
This is an opportunity to be a full-time open-source contributor to the Electron project, as an employee with us at ChartIQ. You’ll be part of a product team. We rely on Electron; it’s a critical foundation to Finsemble, our platform for building enterprise HTML5 desktop applications. You’ll prioritize and implement improvements upstream to Electron, to support Finsemble in providing multi-application, multi-window deployments with interprocess communications that integrate otherwise disparate applications into a seamless unified experience.
ChartIQ is a high-growth startup with $20M+ in Series B funding, offering the dynamism of a startup with the stability that comes with success. We build frameworks and libraries for enterprise developers. In other words, we build the tools for people who build things. For USA-based employees, we offer very competitive salaries, medical/dental/vision coverage, generous vacation time, and flexible work hours.
