We believe work is not a place, but rather a thing you do. Our technology revolves around this core philosophy.

  • Understand or have some familiarity with Assembly languages.

  • Have some knowledge of Intel and/or AMD processor edge cases.

  • Working mainly with C, any experience with Python or Bash would be welcome and you'll be using git and Linux tooling as a regular part of your work.

    What we'd like you to work on in this role:

  • We'll give you the knowledge and support to design new software features for Citrix Hypervisor.

  • Partner our customers by developing and testing hotfixes for emerging security issues.

  • Work with teams across Citrix to ensure our products maintain high quality and security standards.

  • Qualifications and experience:

  • Probably have a strong academic background with one or more degrees in computing, software engineering, mathematics or experimental sciences.

  • Actively contribute to several open source projects (including Xen, Linux Kernel), using our agile development methodology and you’ll get to interact with customers, partners, other Citrix product groups, and with the open source community.

  • A body of experience developing software systems software.

  • Unix or Linux experience.

  • Kernel development or Kernel-level device driver development experience.

  • In addition, experience in any of the following areas would be great!

  • Server virtualisation in general, and Xen or Citrix Hypervisor in particular

  • Windows Device Driver development

  • Software and Hardware Security

  • Linux kernel internals

  • Open source development processes, and interaction with open source communities

  • Knowledge of different types of programming languages, such as procedural languages (e.g., C, C++, C# or Java); scripting languages (e.g., Python); and functional languages (e.g., OCaml, ML, F# or Haskell).

  • What you’re looking for:

    Our technology is built on the idea that everyone should be able to work from anywhere, at any time, and on any device. It’s a simple philosophy that guides everything we do — including how we work. If you’re an engineer, we’ll give you plenty of ways to test your skills on cutting edge technology. We want employees to do what they do best, every day.

    Be bold. Take risks. Imagine a better way to work. If this sounds like you then we’d love to talk.
