What does working as C++ Developer entail?

C++ developers working on ESET Remote Administrator are involved in developing server-side software, which enables administrators to manage and configure ESET security products deployed on individual devices.

To give you a little taste, a typical task for a C++ developer working in our team can be as follows: “Please propose and implement a new network protocol, data replication between servers and new functionality in the user web interface. Please do it with a high degree of effectiveness because our server system has to be able to handle tens to hundreds of thousands of endpoints.”

The technologies used

The C++ developer’s team works on such a diverse scope of functionalities that you’ll certainly be able to find something to interest you. We can easily accommodate even the hard-core backend developer, who prefer code and algorithms, or a developer who has a talent for programming the user interface.

The majority of our applications use “modern C++” code, which has to be cross-platform and accommodate Windows, Linux and OS X. We readily use Boost and Poco libraries, as well as VisualStudio, GCC and Clang for compiling. For scripting, we like to use Python or Perl. In addition, we utilize several “big” SQL databases, such as MySQL, but also SQLite. In our projects involving the user interface, we reach for HTML5, JavaScript and bootstrap library. And all our source data is stored in Git. We make good use of the “continuous integration” build system, and use Jira to store bugs and tasks in. What’s more, our internal communication is fed into the Confluence wiki system.

The advantages

There is a continual flow and variety of tasks, which keeps all of us pretty busy. And you can always jump into the conversations around the water cooler regarding the latest C++2014 features. If you feel more at home in JavaScipt or HTML5, you will always find a worthwhile conversation partner.

Other benefits

Bottomless drinks for all! Enjoy coffee, tea, juice or mineral water and other beverages to your heart’s content.

You will not go hungry. For each working day at ESET you will receive meal vouchers, fully reimbursed by the company. And should hunger strike during the day, you can grab a healthy snack in one of the kitchenettes.

Whether you commute by car, tram, bicycle or by foot, you are entitled to a transportation allowance once on board with ESET.

We support your personal development to help you grow on the job. You can attend a number of training courses, presentations, professional conferences and, best of all, you can improve your language skills, compliments of ESET.

We don’t want you to spend the whole day sitting behind a computer. Head out to the fitness center to lift the body and spirit.

We think family comes first. That’s why for your life’s milestones, such as wedding or birth of your children, in addition to our warmest congratulations, we also give you a financial contribution.

Even though we don’t have the fountain of youth, we can offer the next best thing – we contribute to your retirement savings.

Work hard, play hard. This is what we believe in and that’s why we organize a number of events for our employees throughout the year to relax and enjoy leisure time together.

Personality requirements and skills

Are you cut out for the job?

If your preference is programing in VisualStudio on the Windows platform, ESET is the right place for you. The same goes for Linux/GCC + Vim/Emacs. And if you value honesty as much as we do and can responsibly handle all the assigned tasks, you’d be perfect for our team. But this is not a one-way street − we are also looking forward to learning something new from you. Have a good sense of humor and agree that “the most difficult part in software development is communication?” If you answered in the affirmative, let’s talk.


Brief description of the company

The beginnings of ESET date back to 1987, when two young programming enthusiasts, Peter Paško and Miroslav Trnka, wrote a program for the detection of one of the world’s first computer viruses. They did not know that they had created one of the most successful antivirus programs in the world – dubbing it NOD. In 1992, together with their mutual friend Rudolf Hrubý, they formally established ESET.

What started as the brainchild of a few friends has evolved into the most valuable international brand of any Slovak company. Today ESET’s NOD32 technology protects over 100 million users across the world.

This success did not come overnight. The company’s global success and growth was given a boost in 1998 with its first “VB100” award from the prestigious Virus Bulletin magazine. Since then, we’ve received this accolade more than 80 times.

Today, over 1,000 employees around the world drive the company’s success − more than 450 of them in Slovakia, the home of ESET headquarters. We put great emphasis on research and development. In addition to seven regional centers, we are building a network of technology centers around the world – at present numbering nine.

Throughout the company’s expansion, we have stayed true to the principles on which we were founded, and we remain independent in order to continue to meet new challenges.
