C Developer - Central London - (£45,000 - £70,000)

My client are in need of a motivated software developer to help create our groundbreaking software-based storage system.

The best way to win my client over right now is to be a developer fluent in C and used to working on low-level systems projects. If you've got the will and the skill to work with the core of a high-performance storage and networking system, they will make that happen for you.

It isn't necessary to have a storage background, and it isn't necessary to have worked in any particular industry. They care about what you've done and what you can do.

The data plane is written in C primarily on Linux, and uses pthreads and locking primitives extensively. Experience with these technologies, along with more general data structures and algorithms, is a requirement.

Our systems are built with and run on Docker, so some experience of the use of containers in development will be greatly valued. Some facility with Go would be a definite advantage, as would experience of distributed key/value stores and use of a message bus.

We use a lot of Free and Open Source tools to build and run our product, and we want to make our own contributions to the community, both in terms of submissions to upstream projects and open-sourced projects of our own. If you are or have been active in the community, that will be considered a big advantage.

My client are small and very focused team and there's great scope to direct your career based on your interests and strengths. They are based in Central London, and are especially keen to hear from those able to get to the office quickly or willing to relocate.

If you're a self-starter and interested in making a real difference in a well-funded startup project that's going places, this could be for you.
