We're hiring

Or, we'll hire if we find the right person.

If you live in Israel and are into things like:

  • hardware/processor/programming language/library design
  • compilers, debuggers, profilers, simulators, instrumentation
  • number crunching/optimization
  • parallelism/multi-core/distributed computing

…we might have a bunch of stuff to interest you. Benefits/drawbacks/features:

  • Most projects are intended primarily for internal use - "infrastructure" if you like
  • Lots of custom things, ranging from our own chip to our own distributed build server
  • Plenty of production projects depending on your work
  • Ability to do grand things singlehandedly guaranteed through understaffing
  • Bleeding edge, "first/best" system in several categories
  • Little management, especially if you don't really need any
  • A "Worse is Better" spirit (reasonably pragmatic perfectionists are welcome though)
  • Many long-term projects
  • No downsizing during previous bubble burst
  • Experience in any specific relevant area appreciated but not required
  • Mostly C/C++, Python, and our own languages; if it matters, you can use any other language
  • Mostly Linux, a bit of Windows, Eclipse usage share eclipsed by emacs & vi
  • Nice people
  • Jerusalem

A great place to work, if you ask me. If you're interested, send mail to Yossi.Kreinin@gmail.com

Sounds like you do interesting stuff, indeed. Hope you find some good people.

C++? Et Tu Yosefk?

Would I have a strong opinion about it if I didn't use it?

Sounds great. It's hard to find a job involving C and optimization of low-level number crunching code these days. Would you have any plans of relocating/branching your office to Poland? ;-) UK or other English-speaking country would do too ;-).

Happy hunting (for candidates, of course).

Sounds tempting: specially the understaffing part, I need some action! How much trouble is it to relocate in Israel for a non Jew, non Hebrew speaking, EU citizen.

Is taking someone from abroad a considered option?

Asking the questions for myself, but I guess that may be of interest to more people than just me.

@Ben: I don't think relocating is much trouble, only getting citizenship might be, and as to Hebrew - most people speak English or an approximation.

As to us having considered someone from abroad - not seriously because we didn't think they'd consider us, Israel not being the Silicon Valley or some other of the places people typically go to in search of work. So it's flattering that you ask; if you want to go into details, I think e-mail is the best way.

Sounds like heaven to me. Your company isn't, by chance, looking for someone to open a new office in the US, are they?

(P.S. looking forward to a blog post about your thoughts on C++11. *snicker*)

#8 Yossi Kreinin on 11.09.11 at 10:32 am

There is a US office, but I don't know if they're hiring, and if they do, they'd be looking for an algorithmic background (computer vision/machine learning/parameters estimation/etc.)

Regarding C++11 - trouble is that I'm not into the whole technical satire thing these days, or satire in general, for that matter, so I've lost conceptual continuity with my writing from the C++ FQA times. I'm sort of thinking about it occasionally, maybe I'll publish something but it'll definitely be different.

Did you ever find someone for this position?

#10 Yossi Kreinin on 03.13.12 at 10:46 pm

Yeah, actually we're hiring again.
