Chromium developer


Latest day to apply: 

Would you like to join a major internet company located just next door?

How would it be to really make an impact on the way people access the  web? At Opera, the innovations you create are quickly implemented and  delivered to our users. We have small independent teams who work fast to  improve the internet experience of our 380 million users worldwide. We  compete with the giants in Silicon Valley.

We are looking for software developers who have the curiosity and drive to join our Chromium team in Gothenburg. In this role you will work with C++ and Java and be part of a small,  but skilled team working with one of the biggest open-source projects in  the world, making sure that our Opera for Android browser continues to  have an awesome Chromium integration. We believe in skill, not  certification. While a good understanding of computer science and the  realities of practical software development are a must, titles and  diplomas play no role at Opera.

If you like complexity, this is the job for you! You will dig deep  into the inner workings of Blink and Chromium, implement new web  standards and tweak and optimize this massive code base to behave well  on Android devices.

Our organization is flat, and we work in tight-knit and iterative  processes between product managers, designers, developers and quality  assurance engineers. We do code reviews as well as privacy and security  reviews to bring the quality of our products to the next level. As a  consumer-oriented company, the input from our end users is highly  valued. We monitor their feedback closely and improve the product to fit  their needs.

This kind of agile workflow requires people with an autonomous  working style, who take their own initiatives to improve systems and  processes. A high-quality product also requires people with a good sense  of usability and attention to detail. However, we don’t expect a single  team member to possess all these skills. Instead, we’re looking for  dedicated co-workers who are eager to contribute and grow both  technically and personally.

Moreover, work-life balance is important to us, and we know that  people are creative at different times of the day. You can choose to  start early or work late, as long as you are available to your  colleagues during core hours, from 10 am to 3 pm.

How does this sound?

Please attach a cover letter and your resume and apply now. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
