Jobs

Windows Developer

Job description

We are looking for a versatile Software Engineer to be part of the TunnelBear team. You should have a focus on or keen interest in Windows development and an eye for extraordinary UX.

About You

You take joy in finding simple solutions to complex problems and share our real passion for mauling internet access-restriction, digital privacy, and random digital bear humour.

You will be working on TunnelBear for Windows, helping millions of people protect their privacy online. You will be working on new features to make the app faster, easier to use and more secure.

We are a small company, so naturally the kind of people who tend to succeed in our team are generalists. You should be comfortable in dabbling with all forms of development, such as an occasional tweaking of our backend API.

Responsibilities

  • Write clear, concise, and well-tested C#, F# code and create world-class apps
  • Work with the rest of the team to extend our APIs to support your ideas
  • Collaborate with the design team to push the limits of app UI and UX
  • Apply Test Driven Development to grow software that is both beautiful and reliable
  • Contribute to design and code reviews
  • Identify best practices for app development
  • Author the occasional bear-themed pun (optional..)

Skills We Require

  • Passionate and committed to building award-winning apps.
  • Have an interest in network security and computer/device privacy
  • Passionate about UX and can make meaningful contributions to the conversation.
  • Thorough understanding of the .NET framework, XAML and MVVM.
  • Experience with app internationalization, dependency injection and handling of unmanaged libraries are also nice to have.
  • Should have shipped a finished product - whether it's a "for-fun" app, an open source library, or a really impressive personal project. Real artists ship.

About TunnelBear

We think the Internet is a much better place when everyone can browse privately, and browse the same Internet as everyone else.

TunnelBear Benefits

  • Casual, fun and creative atmosphere
  • An opportunity to add your mark to an inclusive company culture as it develops
  • Flexible working hours
  • Fully stocked snack cupboards and delicious coffee
  • Relax with a movie night or get energized with a ping-pong match
  • Choice of computer, tools and accessories
  • Full benefits plan with a supplementary health care spending account
