Junior Windows Developer

PSPDFKit for Windows — Vienna

Job Description

We’re looking to hire a junior Windows developer to join our team in Vienna working on PSPDFKit, the leading cross-platform PDF framework. Our framework is used by thousands of companies and more than a billion users in countless different settings. The Windows platform, tools and languages from Microsoft are amongst the most exciting and dynamic in the software development. We are at the forefront of Windows development and this is a great opportunity to learn and develop valuable skills and enjoy yourself whilst doing so. Every single day with us is full of new and exciting challenges like designing easy-to-understand API and writing robust code. In this role, you will learn a lot and grow into an experienced engineer while working on a huge, interesting project. (Please note that we do not offer relocation — you should already be in Vienna.)


You Will:

  • Learn how a large project and codebase is organized.
  • Build new features and fix existing issues under the guidance of our senior engineers.
  • Write readable, cross-platform, and well-documented code with meaningful tests so that we can ship new releases often and without fear.
  • Spend more time getting things “right” as opposed to hacking something quickly.
  • Support our customers in integrating our products, help them debug and fix issues, and collaborate with them to understand their requirements for our products.
  • Collaborate with the whole team (Core, Android, Windows, Web, Design, Marketing) using Slack, GitHub, and Google Hangouts.

You Should:

  • Be located somewhere that's 6 hours +/- of the UTC timezone.
  • Have good communication skills and value team cohesion.
  • Have a good understanding of C# (or similar, e.g. Java with a willingness to dive in and learn).
  • Have a good understanding of the challenges of concurrent and parallel programming.
  • Enjoy creating components with a clear and simple API.
  • Have experience with JavaScript, C and C++ (or be ready to learn).
  • Have a pragmatic approach to problem-solving.
  • Have a good command of English for writing documentation and occasional blog posts.

We Offer:

  • Room for personal and professional development.
  • A motivated team and a work culture that enables you to do your best work.
  • Numerous planned company events throughout the year.
  • The freedom to set up your ideal work environment.
  • Flexible working hours and a generous vacation policy.

We Are Looking For:

  • A write-up explaining who you are as a programmer. We are especially passionate about knowing how you got started, what projects you have loved (or not loved) working on, what motivates you, and what surprising things you’ve learned about yourself since you began programming.
  • A piece of code (it doesn’t have to be your own) that does something you find interesting, and an explanation of why.
  • Links to online profiles you use (e.g. GitHub, Twitter).
  • A description of your work history (such as a resume, LinkedIn profile, or prose).

We guarantee a competitive and performance-related salary dependent on your professional and personal qualifications. We are obliged by austrian law to quote the minimum wage for this position. Depending on your level of education and work experience the minimum wage will be monthly 1.767.- € gross. We are willing to pay more for the right candidate.
