CodeWeavers are hiring for a Wine / Proton developer

By - | Views: 24,330

If you're a programmer looking for your next challenge - how about this! CodeWeavers are hiring a full-time position for a developer to work on Wine, Proton and their own CrossOver product. Could be a good chance to work on something awesome.

For those who don't know: CodeWeavers are the company that works with Valve on Proton, and they also sponsor Wine development directly. The position is available remote or local, so even if you don't live in the USA, you can still apply for it as long as you feel you have the necessary skills which includes strong C language skills, excellent debugging, you need to be good with Linux, good with build systems, and no exposure to Microsoft code or reverse-engineering of Microsoft software.

From the job advert:

[Who we are]
CodeWeavers is a small company based in St Paul, Minnesota that enables customers to run Windows programs on macOS, Linux and Android using the open source Wine technology. We are looking for a handful of talented programmers that are willing to learn how to improve Wine. We have developers all around the globe and are happy to hire remote workers.

[About the position]
CodeWeavers needs new, full-time developers to improve Wine's ability to run games and other types of software and integrate well with the native operating system and other system components. Positions are available to work on a variety of Wine-based software, including CodeWeavers's own CrossOver product; the Proton project for Valve software; and projects for other clients and software internal to CodeWeavers.

[Why it's interesting]
CodeWeavers prides itself on four tenets. Do challenging and meaningful work, work with people we respect, have fun at work and of course make money. CodeWeavers is filled with capable developers who believe in the technical and moral strengths of open source software. We thrive by working in an environment with competent co workers, little management hassle, and a sensible approach to work-life balance. We need developers with strong C skills who will enjoy the exciting and varied challenges Wine brings. Most Wine developers work on all areas of Wine, including file I/O, device input, audio/video, graphics, Windows shell and GUI programming, and much more. This requires self-motivation and an ability to learn quickly and work within existing code.
