Do you live and breathe code? When people ask if you dream in color or black and white, do you respond, "I dream in Javascript"? Do you thrive on finding creative solutions to problems, then writing them? Then, Kaazing may be the place for you.

Kaazing is a pioneer in HTML5 and HTML5 WebSockets, some of the most cutting-edge technology today. We're seeking the industry's smartest and most driven engineers to join our team in creating the next generation of real-time communication technologies. While our products focus on the financial, social media, and gaming industries, we're always looking for other innovative ways of using our products in the world.

In this role you are focused on making the complexities of Kaazing's product easy for customers. That involves both server and client work, but with a primary focus on building tools to configure, manage, and monitor the product, with all the server and client technologies those entail. You will mostly build end-user products or enhance the products of the server and client groups to simplify them. Think "space shuttle dashboards" that give the pilot a 360-degree view of the world, in real time.

Our customers have described our code as "elegant", not just in its efficiency but in its efficacy as well. The ideal candidate should love to code, whether it's writing a scalable Java server from scratch or developing with any client framework available, like JavaScript, Android, IOS, .NET, Flash/Flex, ...the gamut. A deep passion for innovation and problem-solving is a must; Kaazing is truly a hotbed of creativity, and we love sharing ideas and encouraging new and inventive solutions.

We have positions focusing on Tools, Client Side, as well as Backend Server & Performance.

Requirements:

  • You love writing code that on the surface looks deceptively simple, yet underneath is extraordinarily robust, scalable, and adaptable; this is performance engineering and you know how to design "elegant" solutions to complex problems
  • This is infrastructure middleware, so you are intimately familiar with http/tcp socket programming on multithreaded servers
  • Proven successful development in system management tools or monitoring tools
  • Experience with one or more of the following: JavaScript, Andriod, IOS, CSS, HTML5, Protovis, Processing, Eclipse development, installers
  • Worked on Java Management Extensions (JMX), Java Message Service (JMS); and/or XMPP, AMQP
  • Strong analytical and creative problem-solving skills, and a drive to innovate
  • Enthusiasm and a sense of humor

Recommended:

  • Knowledge of and interest in Internet communications standards (HTTP, TCP, WebSockets, etc.)
  • Mobile web development expertise, including IOS, Android, and other platforms
  • Commitment to a public industry presence: speaking engagements, authoring, standards body participation
