Electron Open-Source Developer - Full-Time Paid


ChartIQ logo
“Basically what we're looking for is someone who can be our engineer, who works on and contributes to the electron project. Our Electron expert.”

For example, Electron has a current, long-running bug which is critical for us but not critical for the community at large: #12027. Fixing that bug requires that you understand Electron and its internals and hack at the underlying Chromium layer which is in C++.

This is an opportunity to be a full-time open-source contributor to the Electron project, as an employee with us at ChartIQ. You’ll be part of a product team. We rely on Electron; it’s a critical foundation to Finsemble, our platform for building enterprise HTML5 desktop applications. You’ll prioritize and implement improvements upstream to Electron, to support Finsemble in providing multi-application, multi-window deployments with interprocess communications that integrate otherwise disparate applications into a seamless unified experience.
