Do you want to make products that help people think better?

reMarkable is a Norwegian tech company on a mission to help people think better in a distracted world. We recently confirmed our status as Norway’s latest unicorn, with over 300 employees in Oslo and a million devices sold worldwide. In what feels like no time, we've gone from a small startup finding its way to being one of the fastest-growing companies in Europe.

Following the successful launch of reMarkable 2, which was named one of TIME's top 100 inventions of 2020, we've set ourselves exciting growth and product development goals for 2022. To help us get there, we need new colleagues ready to make a real difference through their work – and that’s where you come in.

We’re currently looking for a Senior Software Engineer to strengthen our software capability as we grow globally. Are you ready to join the exciting growth of a truly unique tech brand?

About the role

We’re looking for an experienced and committed software engineer to join our collaborative cross-functional software teams. You’ll work closely with designers, QA, backend developers, and other application developers - from our own Linux distribution to Mac, Windows and Android/iOS - using your choice of tools and platforms. We use modern C++ and Qt for many parts of the apps. What makes us unique is that we build our own hardware, OS, and software. Our team has great ambitions and the potential to push the boundaries of what a device like reMarkable can do.

We have many exciting projects to improve our architecture. We are aiming to decouple our code more, improve the structure and use dependency injection where it makes sense. We have a solid foundation, but we want to go faster. Part of this position is to enable others to write great code, based on a common framework and conventions.

In 2023 we will be working on:

  • We are working on improving our architecture, build system, CI pipelines, increasing test coverage. Developing and improving key algorithms, software components and modules using C++17. We use CI, unit tests, static analysis and release automation.

  • Working with designers from our UX team on the graphic user interface implemented in QML, integration with C++ models, building design systems, and implementing next-generation apps.

  • Ensuring the writing experience feels natural when going from pen to pixels on an e-ink display. Plus, monitoring performance using advanced techniques to display and render natural pen strokes.

  • Expanding our third-party integrations in new and exciting ways and making sure the interactions from device to service function in a good way. (Currently, we offer Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive integration.)

  • Working with OS integrations, such as battery management and network handling, which come with owning the entire technology stack, from hardware to UI.

  • Prioritizing and protecting the user experience, even when doing complex processing or long-running tasks. We make few compromises when it comes to performance, concurrency, and stability.

Further tasks and responsibilities

  • Participate in the planning and shaping of new and existing product features

  • Develop user-focused software and collaborate with a talented UX design team

  • Contribute to a cross-functional team consisting of QA, designers, cloud and application developers

  • Experience rapid growth in a dynamic environment

  • Use modern C++ and create user interfaces in QML

  • Work closely with the embedded team who creates our own Linux distribution

  • Participate in hack days as well as exchange ideas and knowledge at our tech talks

  • Further modularize and modernize our codebase, move to newer C++ (we’re on C++17 now), decouple things, improve the architecture of the codebase

Who are you?

  • You have a Master's degree in a relevant subject, or equivalent professional experience

  • You are a team player, that will thrive working in cross-functional team

  • You have advanced knowledge of programming languages, including C++

  • You have knowledge of CMake, Package management (vcpkg), maintenance of a scaling code base

  • You like to work on as many platforms as possible (Windows/Linux/mac/iOS/Android/Embedded Linux)

  • Have basic knowledge of algorithms and data structures

  • You enjoy creating user interfaces and care about user interaction

  • You have experience with Qt (our UI framework)

  • Previous embedded software experience is a plus
