Rust Job Details

GRIMM is seeking a mission-oriented junior-to-mid level Software Engineer with Computer Network Operations (CNO) knowledge or experience who is driven to solve interesting problems and build robust software. You will be a part of a fully remote, small, dynamic team focused on end-to-end engineering and design of systems and tools.

In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to learn new technologies like Rust while flexing your skills in more tried-and-true tooling to create novel solutions to mission-driven problems. You will be successful in this role if you are familiar with at least one of these systems programming APIs: win32, UCRT, Android NDK, iOS SDK, or POSIX. We don’t expect anyone to know all of it, but you will encounter these as we construct novel, mature applications with tests, developer and user documentation, and peer reviews.

If you are looking to work alongside subject matter experts and have a strong desire to learn from their mentorship to grow your skills, apply today! We'd love to meet you.
