Seven years of constant development helped us in being recognized as #7 fastest growing software company (rated by Inc.5000 - 2016).

Our product is video management system Nx Witness.


  • Refactor C++ code to make the project more light-weight, thus, built faster.
  • Improve and further develop the cross-platform (Linux x86 and ARM, Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android) CMake-based build system of a huge C++ project (>1 million lines of code).
  • Improve and further develop the build system of Nx SDKs and their sample plugins; take part in developing SDKs.

  • Improve and further develop distribution package building for Windows (MSI/WixSetup).

  • Analyze requirements for the CI team and implement their requirements for the build system.

  • Keep track of CI build failures. Collaborate with the CI team on investigating failed builds.


  • Investigate compiler issues (like incomplete C++ support), handle migration to new compiler versions.
  • Become an expert in investigating C++ compile/link issues occurring on developers' workstations.

  • Investigating product crashes as a tier 1, dispatching to other programmers.

  • Investigating customer issues with Nx SDKs as a tier 2 (after an issue is investigated by the Suppor team).


  • Implement incremental builds on Windows via migration from MSBuild to Ninja.
  • Identify bottlenecks in the build system performance.

  • Refactor project libs to consistently hide private symbols (declspec/attribute-visibility) to have a destinct interface and private parts; resolve the consequent issue of linking unit tests with the private units being tested.

  • Take part in migrating the artifact build/sync system from an in-house Python tool ("rdep") to Conan or the like.

  • Refactor CMake build system for building open-source Client.


  • Deep understanding of at least one build system (e.g. CMake, Qmake, Maven, Gradle, Ant, automake, MSBuild).
  • Basic Linux administration skills for at least one Debian-based Linux distribution: working with command-line (ps, grep, redirection), package managers (dpkg, apt).

  • Some Bash scripting experience: loops, functions, escaping/quotes/globs.

  • Some Python programming experience (ability to implement a simple algorithm without googling).

  • Understanding of Linux C/C++ toolchain processes of compiling and linking: dynamic libraries (rpath/rpath-link), exported symbols control (attribute-visibility), C++ name mangling, ldd/readelf.

  • Basic C++ knowledge: C subset, extern "C", namespaces, unnamed namespaces and "static", classes.

  • Visual Studio and Windows programming experience.

  • Strong knowledge of at least one general-purpose programming language (e.g. C, C++, C#, Java, Python, Delphi).

  • Some experience with distributed version control systems (e.g. Git, Mercurial).


  • Advanced Bash scripting: local variables and variable types, arrays, variable substitutions ("${}"), regex, error handling ("set -e", exit status, traps).
  • Windows administration skills: services, file system permissions, Cygwin, MSI installers.

  • Some MacOS/iOS programming.

  • MacOS administration skills (knowing differences from Linux).

  • Expert Python knowledge, including Python 3.

  • Expert C++ knowledge: SFINAE, atomics, C++17 features, STL.

  • Debugging with gdb/strace; analyzing crashes.

  • Distributed C++ compiling/linking: ccache/distcc.

  • Using Qt in C++ programs.

  • Building projects with Qt.

  • Expert CMake knowledge: cmake_parse_arguments, configure_file, GLOB, find_package, lists, regex.

  • Using Conan or another artifact maintaining system.
