At KIVU, a hot Vienna start-up that just got a major investment, we're looking for a senior server-side programmer, to assist our Chief Engineer. We deal with networks aka the mathematical structures known as graphs, and have written our own graph/network processing back-end, one that runs at amazing speeds.

The position entails:

  • working your way up to the position of "right hand of the Chief Engineer", being able to stand in for him on occasion
  • co-responsiblity for features, source code and road map of the graph/network-processing back-end
  • code reviews of your colleagues' work
  • frequently: independent design of new features, test campaigns, pilot programme / prototype implementations etc. etc.
  • frequent communications with all the members of a highly driven, skilled 10+ member team
  • knowledge and experience transfer to junior programmer colleagues
  • occasional travel in Europe and the Middle East, for up to 25% of your time (we'll do our best for you to always be home during the weekends, though we can't give a hard guarantee there)

To work on it, you'll need to bring the following:

  • an accomplished engineer who has seen the interior of several companies or institutions.
  • deep knowledge of Java and the Java Development Kit (JDK), up to and including version 8
  • considerable Knowledge of at least one other modern programming language:
    C++, Haskell,... (yes, it may be an exotic language, too!)
  • a good communicator, not afraid to speak at conferences or explain difficult technical concepts to lay persons, management, etc.
  • great familiarity with object-oriented development and design techniques, such as design patterns, inheritance, enums, abstract vs concrete, programming for interfaces, etc.
  • not afraid to deal with the more sophisticated things we do in our server-side software: off-heap programming in Java, lambda serialization, bytecode instrumentation
  • You actually like applied math, and are not afraid of: graph theory, set theory, abstract algebra/group theory...
  • familiarity with more than the basics of algorithmics: big-Oh notation,big-Theta notation, paralellization, amortized running costs
  • good spoken and written English is a MUST; we speak English all day long
  • friendly, outgoing personality who can create his/her own place in a small but expanding team, and - if and when necessary - lead a team by consensus
  • Ideally, you live in or around Vienna; if you don't, you agree to talk with us about relocating to Vienna or its surroundings
  • a Masters or Engineering ("Diplomingenieur") degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or one of the Engineering disciplines, obtained from a European or North American university / engineering school; however, autodidacts are highly welcome

What we offer:

  • A highly challenging job that could be the dream of any experienced software engineer
  • Over time, a position of serious responsibility within the company
  • Direct societal relevance of your work, that actually saves lives (yes, we're serious about that)
  • Competitive compensation and benefits (collective bargaining agreement minimum salary EUR 4.894,-- overpayment according to experience and performance
  • An environment that welcomes diversity
