Rust Job Details

About this role:
We are looking for an awesome TypeScript/Rust/Node.js Software Engineer who wants to join a small, fast-growing, 100% remote team working on bringing software development fully into the browser.

In this role, you'll be working on WebContainer, the first-ever in-browser WebAssembly-based operating system. If you're interested in the convergence happening with WebAssembly, Node.js, Operating Systems, and browser engines, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work on the next revolution of computing on the web.

How you’ll contribute:
  • Build new capabilities into WebContainer's kernel with Rust and WebAssembly
  • Improve Node.js compatibility with WebContainer and investigate support for new languages and runtimes.
  • Contributing to security enhancements and helping OSS projects such as Node.js Core, Next.js, and others adopt WebAssembly instead of native binaries.
  • Create code and content that helps the Rust and Node.js communities ship smaller and faster WebAssembly binaries.
  • Improve our in-browser developer environment (shell, npm client (turbo), etc.)

Who you are:
You MUST be located in the EU or CEST timezone (remote within GMT 0-4)
You have a solid understanding of native Node.js APIs such as file systems, networking, crypto, and others
You have 5+ years of experience in Web Development using Web (browser) APIs (heavily focused on JavaScript and less on building UIs using CSS and HTML)
5+ years using JavaScript / TypeScript
Experience with e2e testing (puppeteer) and unit testing (jest)
Ability to thrive in an ambiguous environment with a high degree of autonomy
Ability to learn new technologies and systems quickly
Empathy. For our customers, for the team, and for yourself
Problem-solving skills, a great attitude, and a desire to win together as a team
Communication superpowers, especially when discussing technical topics

Bonus points:
Familiarity with WebAssembly and/or C/C++
Experience with Rust
No task is too big or too small
Not afraid to take on tasks outside of your core role
Perpetual learning attitude

Absolutely NOT Required:
A college degree
Being located in or authorized to work in the United States
Having ALL of the skills/experience listed above. If you're interested in the job, please apply!
