Role Description

Wickr's mission is to secure the world's most critical communications by helping organizations and individuals around the world ensure the privacy of their intellectual property and communications, regardless of the data format. Wickr provides the highest standard of encryption trusted by millions worldwide. In the workplace and out in the field, Wickr enables end users to communicate securely and protect their privacy while providing IT organizations the administrative controls needed to deploy at scale, providing flexible options and controls for information governance and compliance for regulated industries. We build state-of-the-art cyber security technology tools to safeguard the integrity and security of personal and business data with greater efficacy than any other solution on the market.

As a C & Rust Engineer at Wickr, you will help build the next generation of Technology! This critical Engineering position will have the unique ability to work with our cryptography team on the design and test of new products and features.

Responsibilities: • Work with our cryptographers to create prototypes of cutting edge cryptographic and security features such as advanced encryption, signature, and key agreement schemes. • Work with our core engineering team to convert prototypes of new network protocols and security features into production ready implementations that can be used by Wickr applications. • Help develop a new cross platform Wickr protocol library in Rust. • Write benchmarks and optimize code to help our team take full advantage of new features. • Write code that is modular and well-covered by automated unit and integration tests. • Help write and test FFI wrappers for our Rust libraries in Java, Swift, and C++.

Qualifications: • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Engineering or related field. • 4+ years of experience developing software libraries in a low-level language such as C and C++. • Minimum of 2 years’ experience writing Rust code in a production environment. • Experience working in an agile software development environment. • Experience contributing to open source libraries is a plus. • Experience working with Java, Swift, or NodeJS is a plus. • Interest in cryptography and secure coding practices is a plus. • Be a self-starter who is willing to take ownership of your work. • Excellent communicator in both verbal and written English.
