What do we do?

On-site Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is a dinosaur model, developed in the pre-internet era. We're redesigning VDI for the web, from the ground up.

Come build the future of computers with us! Overall, the project is challenging but really fun to work on. Some of the pieces are:
- High-performance javascript. We're leverage bleeding-edge web standards and really interesting technologies to render a desktop fluidly in a browser.
- Optimization problems. Since every millisecond matters to us, we care about things like how the human eye discerns lag and how the brain processes visual information. We are constantly drawing from adjacent fields like video gaming and virtual reality for precedent.
- Cloud orchestration. Ultimately, we have a massive distributed system on our hands and are looking for creative minds to help architect our back-end. We're tinkering with server virtualization and really cool virtual GPU tech
