Engineering | Dublin, Ireland

Who We Are:

Nitro is an exciting, high-growth company in the rapidly evolving digital documents space. We put people at the center of everything we do, both our customers and our employees.

It comes back to one of our core values:
High Performance - We have a “performance first” orientation and ambitious plans for the company. This means ample opportunity for those who join us to make a big impact. Non-high performers need not apply.
Be Good - We hire people with big hearts and foster an environment where they can be themselves and do their best work. We celebrate individuality and diversity and provide our employees with the opportunities, the resources and the support they need to thrive and flourish.
No BS – this one is self-explanatory
Our value proposition is straightforward, tangible and easy to prove: We believe software technology should be easy to use, help make people better, and be accessible to any knowledge worker who wants to be more productive. We are on a mission: we hire creative, intelligent, talented people; we build great products that delight our customers; and we are doing it in a rewarding way– a way that feels good and makes us proud to be part of Nitro.

The Role:

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer with C++ skills for our Dublin office to help us evolve our desktop products and services, and to assist in the creation of new and exciting products. Can you write kick-ass code? Do you consider yourself to be a keen investigator, a code diver, a bug basher and an all-round trouble-shooter? Are you the type of engineer whose first instinct is to verify your code with robust coded tests? If so, then this job is for you.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Working closely with a no-bullshit tightly-knit engineering team to improve technical solutions that delight our users.
  • Troubleshooting issues that challenge our users.
  • Implementing new features that improve the experience of our products for our users
  • Contributing to the engineering of entire features and fixes.
  • Writing clear, concise, and well-tested code. 

You will need:

  • A University Degree in computer science or related field.
  • Solid understanding of C++ with at least 6+ years’ experience working with the language. You should be familiar with one of the more recent C++ standards C++14, C++17 or C++20.
  • Comfortable with using the Standard Template Library.
  • Experience working with test methodologies such as TDD, BDD or equivalent. Ideally this would be in a C++ environment.
  • Experience with Win32 and Win64 APIs ideally in a graphics-rich arena.
  • Experience implementing, or using in your application, ActiveX/COM components.
  • A natural ability to troubleshoot, investigate and solve software faults.
  • Effective written and verbal communication skills.
  • A desire to be part of a fast moving and dynamic company.
  • A desire to be mentored by others.

Additional skills and experience that would be an added plus:

  • Experience refactoring legacy code making it more testable and easier to evolve.
  • Experience with other programming languages
  • Experience with modern UI subsystems other than MFC
  • Experience with image processing, document processing or computer vision
  • Experience with PDF and Microsoft Office object models.
